Pros

- I've been at Autodesk for almost a year, and honestly I love every day working at this great company. The company has a solid open and inclusive culture that's being driven from the top leadership. - Besides, this is truly family oriented company, where one can have a great WLB. - Compensation is great (I know some of you might say there is better Pascale, but it's quite compensative if you compare it with other companies of the same size)

Cons

I can't think of anything else at the moment.

Colleagues around the world are of high quality.

Cons

Non-stop layoffs, no clear path forward, and leadership embraces hateful woke ideology not supported by the majority of diverse employee.

Advice to Management

End politics in the office. Focus on people and end the division.

Pros

Excellent WLB Excellent benefits Good senior leadership (company, not security) Interesting and challenging work Remote work

Cons

Security senior leadership is very poor (the best example of the Peter principal you will find) and currently without a real CiSO Very poor decision making and communication Never ending reorgs Poor career development opportunities Chronically understaffed team with ever changing demands, priorities and projects Salary and bonus are well below market

Advice to Management

Recruit experienced, competent security leaders for the senior leadership roles, until that changes nothing will improve Invest in hiring experienced engineers Pay competitive salaries

Pros

Good if you don't mind getting fired by a CEO for which money is the only value.

Cons

Be happy to still have a job, the more experience you get with them the closer you are to the door, no matter how experienced and dedicated you are. All that matter in this company is money in the pocket in the CEO.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the CEO, culture of exploiting employees.
