I worked at Autodesk

Pros

Good perks for this type of job - and very even across levels of employment. Fitness reimbursement, stock options, sabbaticals, etc.

Cons

Ok place, but consistent feeling that one hand has no idea what the other is doing. Very scattered and uninspired leadership around new initiatives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to key employees. Not everyone expects a manager's salary in order to give sound business advice. Some employees just actually care about doing it right

    Great work-life balance most times.
    Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Poor quality of senior management and leadership.
    Too many older people. Need more young blood.
    Need more trained managers.
    Often, lot of planning and talking, but not enough action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and retain talent. Else you will be obsolete quickly. Learn how to create efficiencies in organizations.

    Pros

    Great company for user centered design. Very interesting projects/products. Dedicated professional users. The company has a very good record of keeping employees for the long term.

    Cons

    Working with people on distributed virtual teams is very common and leads to longer hours. Waterfall software process is on the way but the transition to agile is slow in some areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership at Autodesk is solid and experienced- the people I work for seem to know what they're doing. Keep the focus on sustainability.
