I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

Old boys club - leadership has entitlement issues and uses scare tactics. Lack of opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Make an effort to make all employees feel valued.

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

    Pros

    Base salary is ok, but RSUs and bonus really add up after a couple of years. People are generally pleasant to work with. Cool technology and exciting business model transition.

    Cons

    Impossible to get promoted, especially within ISM. If you want to make director, better off going elsewhere. vacation policy sucks, difficult to get things done sometimes. lot of people who can say no to something...very few who can say yes.

    Advice to Management

    Need better rotation programs - a lot of middle management will likely leave in the next year or two.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, including a sabbatical every 4 years (you'll need it!). Flexible work hours and work from home policies. Reasonable compensation and a good ESPP program.

    Cons

    Frequent re-orgs mean an endless rotating cast of managers, a few were pretty good - but the recent ones were the very worst managers I have ever encountered. Be careful of ending up on the wrong team. Management by intimidation is tolerated, and quite often the ability to talk a good game is valued over the ability to do good work. Extremely political and you will end up on the losing side if you don't play the game. Definitely an old boys club.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good look at your mid-level managers and ask yourself if they really have the ability to grow and manage teams. Reconsider the "paperless" review system - no paper trail means managers are free to throw their people under the bus to save their own skins when necessary.
