I have been working at Autodesk full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Autodesk is a good company to work for, one of top 100 best companies to work for, exciting products, and software.

Cons

Short sided management view, continuous cost cutting, and can't hire qualified people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your employees who are doing the great job, not who you know in your circle of close friends. CEO just cashed out 830K stocks and they claim not enough money to compensate employees who worked really hard during the year. RSU are distributed among their circle of trusted friends.

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

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (more than an 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.
