    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A few nice people worked there. You could bring your dog to work. Very, very, very, very, very little else.

    Cons

    Miserable management. Poor schedule handling. Zero assistance if you fall behind. Training was offered by almost never.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your greatest value. Learn that. Get used to it. Use it. Grow with it. Live by it.

    "A company that would rather lose 10 good employees than fire a bad manager."

    Pros

    You get to work with cool software. The office environment, spacially, is beautiful. There's opportunity to move geographically if you want or need to.

    Cons

    Lots of long term, embedded fat in the employee base. Most are entrenched into cliques of past bought-out companies. Management allows some employees to surf the web all day while other workers pick up the slack. Their review/compensation process is used as a cowardly payback system by disgruntled peers. It was by far the most juvenile, petty, and viscious environment that I have ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    When an entire group rebels against a manager year after year with consistent, horrific reviews, perhaps you should replace the manager rather than let your best talent walk out the door with years of knowledge. Don't relocate the problem so another group will suffer; let the person go. Your loyalty to incompetant managers is your achilles heel.
