Former Employee - User Experience Designer in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Great people doing the actual work. Most are highly committed to the products they are making and the industries they are serving. Lots of great ideas.

Cons

Constant reorganizations
poor communication up and down the management chain
little opportunity for advancement
a tendency to throw the baby out with the bathwater every time there is some new direction
lots of internal politics by managers trying to please their managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Calm down
Respect experienced staff
Empower your brilliant people. Give them more autonomy and responsibility rather than smother them with layers of approvals and reporting.
Stop spending thousands to feel like you are saving money when you are only saving hundreds

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Updated equipment and software. All tools are available. Efficient systems in place.

    Cons

    Espoused values are not exactly the expressed values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loyalty to your employees is valued if you want to keep good people.
    You have an open environment, yet there is secrecy and lack of transparency.
    Established policies and procedures are not always applied due to politics and power ploys.
