    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    great company to work for. Sideways and upward mobility, work is valued, great and well communicated corporate vision. A lot of cutting edge projects to work on. Good work life balance and very competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Much of the culture change being pushed with the business transformation is not being accepted at the middle management tier. Saying it and expecting it to just happen is not going to work. Make people accountable

    Advice to Management

    Push harder on changing the culture - it is not trickling down.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is a old IT company so most of its projects are not fresh, and your colleagues are people in 35-40 ages.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs fresh man.
