Great place to work and Great people to work with!

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
San Rafael, CA

Pros* Great benefits package - love the sabbatical!
* Not afraid to try something new - always trying to find the next best way to do something
* Really, Really great people! These people have become like an extended family to me.

Cons* Never seem to find a good path for promotion. Hard to move up if you are not in the inner circle
* Teams can be split across regions making for some long hours
* Vacation for long term employees! Sabbatcical is great but after being here 15+ years it would be ince to get more than 2 weeks vacation a year!

Advice to Senior Management* Offer more chances for promotion
* add more vacation time
* Listen to the imput provided by those not in the clouds...we see things you don't!
* Use Agile more...keep teams centralized...makes for a faster, more effecient way to do projects

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Interesting products, and talented staff, but mostly incompetent senior management & executive team

    I have been working at Autodesk


    Pros: Strong compensation package. Generous sabbatical program. Cons: Autodesk is a highly political organization. Those who get ahead commit tremendous energy internal manipulation and consolidation of personal power - not concerned with customers… Advice to Senior Management: Value cooperation over competition. Reduce management structure - flatten the organization. Create conditions for skilled people to do their jobs as they… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
