Pros

Autodesk has been one of the great software companies for almost 30 years. The products lead the market, the people are smart, hardworking, and collaborative, and their are tremendous opportunities to grow, develop, and contribute.

Cons

The location in San Rafael is a bit of a commute unless you live in Marin.
Only 2 weeks of vacation per year, but you do get Xmas week off andva 6 week sabbatical after 4 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to drive results and improve margins. Continue to invest in developing people. More aggressively manage investments to drive growth.

    Pros

    Looks good in your resume.
    Nice working environment, friendly staffs.
    Have the chance to learn about culture in an international company.

    Cons

    Not high enough salary compare to the same level of work.
    The company is too big to take risky. So, it could be quite dull after working for a couples of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be in the employee's shoes and communicates more with the teams you managed.
    No more meaningless meetings and surveys.

    Cons

    - Not able to orient all of the teams on common goals.
    - Not able to take advantage of internet because of internal politics.
    - Main products are all battleships...changing course towards innovative or current design thinking is difficult to impossible.
    - Some people have been there forever and expect and assume you know the intricacies of their processes.
    - Not a very collaborative environment. Want to make decisions before discussing options.
