Agreed that office politics are little to none here. More to come in the San Francisco location, we're expanding utilization and potentially space.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work/ life balance is acceptable. Time off is fine. Pay is on par. Overall working for Autodesk is normal. But, you can easily make it extraordinary. Just say what you want and do your job well and you are taken care of. The company has good values and strong roots so you can really be on a branch and not feel like the end is near.

    Cons

    Promotions is always the biggest complaint. It is a company that treats employees well so no one ever really leaves.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
