I worked at Autodesk full-time
Productive and fun workplace, enjoyable work environment.
Flexible and open to suggestions.
Positions available to work remote (From home).
Great salary and benefits.
Amazing projects and great people.
Excellent training and opportunities to move up in positions with greater responsibility.
Regular reorganizations every 3 to 6 months so you are constantly bounced from one project to another.
No job security regardless of the years spent at the company.
Too many management changes.
I worked at Autodesk as an intern (More than a year)
fruits and lunches provided. fooseball is a plus.
still a large corporation - trying to make changes is a challenge.
I worked at Autodesk as an intern (Less than a year)
The team was amazon and let me work on real, shipping products. They provided support and feedback, and were fun to hang out with personally as well as work with professionally. The office space is nice, along with good cafeteria amenities. Definitely learned a lot and would come back.
I kept hearing a lot of talk about job cuts and project closures. It didn't affect my team while I was there, however it seemed to be a recurring topic of conversation.
Advice to Management
Keep up the internship program!

Lots to learn, hundred of cool products and services many industries and professional designers and makers. Flexible work environment and transparent management.
Paradoxically, too many products can often lead to adverse brand identity and focus. Tightening up the product line and strategy and continued focus on cloud and mobile offerings should help.

Too many to list, but here goes anyway.
Tone at the top. Marching orders from CEO are "get out there and build a better world." Pretty hard to argue with that.
The company funds original research into all sorts of things. This attracts people who are not just corporate drones and zombies, and is one of the best recruiting tools I've ever witnessed.
The company is rapidly transitioning from a fast follower into a thought leader.
Cool office space.
Even cooler range of software.
Outstanding, well intentioned, responsible people for the most part.
Some Wall Street hedge funds have noticed that Autodesk has a vision that extends past the end of the current fiscal quarter. It remains to be seen if they can learn to tolerate an altruistic business model that wants to do good things to benefit ALL stakeholders over an extended period of time.
Advice to Management
Continue the transition to a thought leader of the software industry. The world needs this kind of vision.
