It's nothing I'd recommend if you cherish your health and sanity.

I have been working at Autodesk full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

U.S. 6 week paid sabbatical every 4 years...You'll need it. Great co-workers.

Cons

Incompetent managers thickly layered throughout. Every manager has to give 20% of their direct reports poor ratings on their yearly review so you could play the politics and not work as hard/be as savvy and make way more than a co-worker who gets things done well all year but doesn't kiss up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of some of the layers of incompetent, ineffective managers below you. It's a funnel of idiocy that has no real function!

    Great company to work for, if you are not part of an acquisition.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Great products
    6 week sabbatical after 4 years

    Cons

    For the division I worked in, I was part of an acquisition. New management had no understanding of the business and team she was adopting, and as a result, created standards and expectations unreasonable to the position. Had I started my role at Autodesk from the beginning, perhaps the outcome would have been different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good vision, but poor ability to engage with team. Fear mongering and negative reinforcement tactics to engage team.
