Smart people, caring culture, great executive leadership, important products and services for industries served that have a big impact on shaping the world around us. Autodesk is also a tech business... that is profitable with a really strong asset base, that continues to evolve and grow, a good long term employment prospect
Can be a little US centric in worldview (although APAC is strong) and Brand recognition is not yet as strong as it should be (the best company you’ve never heard of)
Get familiar with big company workflow, e.g. Operational excellence meeting every week, code review Great compensation (better than Google IMO) Fexible work schedule Codebase public to... any engineer. Internal search, social question-and-answer website saga and wiki. Quite easy to learn from there. Fexible career path. You can choose manager or senior/principal engineer as going further.
Definitely higher workload than small company
