Fun, solid and reliable company.

Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
San Rafael, CA

I have been working at Autodesk

ProsStrong company with solid financials. Recognized leader in design software with interest in new technologies and business models.

ConsOverall, corporate culture promotes team consensus on decisions which can delay or confuse decision-making. Also, culture promotes work environment sensitive to others, meaning that it is sometimes difficult to be direct. CEO is more of a technologist and idea-inspired person than a compelling visionary or leader. Autodesk has difficulty breaking bad habits developed over 25 years - fairly calcified business operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementShake-up the business model faster. Be more demanding of the channel. We have shared customers and the sales channel has to relinquish some of its control of customer information.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
