    I have been working at Autodesk as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly people, reasonable work hours. They have goals to improve their products and find a way that let's their consumers more easily obtain and use them. Taking initiative is typically encouraged.

    Cons

    Poor company wide communication. Lack of transparency from management. Too much focus on process and bureaucracy while most times the process is ill defined. Poor talent acquisition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication should be more direct and shouldn't have to flow to multiple channels to get to the right audience. Many times it feels like there are too many chefs in the kitchen which translates to unnecessary micromanagement and ultimately less productivity.

    I have been working at Autodesk

    Pros

    - Nice offices and perks
    - Nice work life balance

    Cons

    - They can terminate a project suddenly and without any notice even after 40 plus % of the project is completed successfully. Don't give any reasons for this.
    - Does not take action against people who don't perform well, play politics and only talk smoothly.
    - Has non-technical managers to manage technical teams.
    - Most employees are contractors, maybe about 60-70%. Too much competition and less team bonding.
    - Has a lot of useless and boring meetings. Content is useless and there is no action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan your projects properly and stop having useless meetings.
