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

    Pros

    My co-workers are great - smart, always willing to help out no matter how busy they are. Great work/life balance and competitive salary and benefits. Great offices. They seem to care about employee satisfaction.

    Cons

    CONSTANT change - expect a new manager and change in role at least once a year. In my opinion, they don't give programs or initiatives enough time to gain traction before changing again. Middle managers need training. They are people who were good at their jobs and promoted without any training whatsoever. It's not the managers' fault, but the quality is all over the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide consistent management training for anyone who manages other employees.
