    Pros

    It's a huge company and has tons of resources. Everyone knows Autodesk so it's not hard to have conversations with customers. Compensation plan is pretty good.

    Cons

    It takes forever to get anything done. Endless meetings. Dozens of people involved in making simple decisions. Keep your head down and go with the flow and you can survive most of the reorgs. Reorgs are pretty regular.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of goals and direction of company - good and bad news. Need updates more often than once a year "message from the mountaintop."

    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.
