    Pros

    Great people everywhere and the products are amazing. Benefits like sabbatical are unheard of in many large organizations. Leaders in AEC which opens the door to executives. Cloud vision promising but will take time. Carl Bass is a CEO tech geek who really appreciates and values our cool technology. Stock soaring and a great ride for those of us in the ESPP plan another great benefit of working here.

    Cons

    Good old boys network in senior leadership that is old school. Example we are micromanaged to a set of weekly activity and call metrics more appropriate for point products versus selling true value based solution selling. Chaotic and stressful environment full of immature managers who have advanced due to relationships and who spend time bad mouthing each other across divisions. Looks bad to those of us in the ranks. One word sums it up "politics"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great people are leaving because of office politics. Pay attention.

    I have been working at Autodesk

    Pros

    Company wide:
    -work/life balance
    -competitive pay
    -intelligent people
    -exciting space and business model transition

    Cons

    Mostly FP&A, but not limited to it...
    -inexperienced management (many are green)
    -incompetence (many without finance background and poor systems knowledge)
    -environment not conducive to growth
    -very high turnover
    -condescending attitude
    -too many useless finance directors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to work with employees, instead of degrading them and expecting them to follow suit. There is a cycle of toxicity passed down from finance directors and no company should have that. It's obvious that the FP&A director drove the CFO out.

    Autodesk has a great foundation and has the vision. It's just a matter of improving certain pockets that have poor management.
