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

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 Management

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

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance, a feeling that you are really helping the world, competent and effective management who values results as well as relationship building.

    Cons

    In a technology based job market of outrageous IPO's, 100% growth, and a global look, the compensation is under market for technology. Partly to blame for head-count bloat outside of core-competency.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core competencies. Since the software is built much like a platform or ecosystem, it's easy so think "can we go into this industry", and then "enter the consumer space", and then still "focus on BIM". The fact is that Autodesk software thrives when it's more-or-less the industry standard, so make sure adequate importance is put on capturing the lion-share of the industry IT spend wallet.
