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

    Pros

    amazing people, exciting projects, very transparent management, work life balance, 6 weeks sabbatical, annual tech summits, UX summits, various platforms (Lyyda, Pluralsight..) for learning new technologies.

    Cons

    none that I can think of. Autodesk really cares about its employees. I highly recommend Autodesk.

    Advice to Management

    I am happy to see that we are focusing on subscription platform and cloud solutions and I hope we stay focused and deliver the results very quickly.

    Pros

    Organic Growth. That is what I have taken away from the sincere videos I’ve had the pleasure of watching this weekend. I enjoyed them. I was moved by the bond these individuals have developed with the purpose of their work, how it makes them feel, and the result realized. Uniquely, but collaboratively — with altogetherness.

    Cons

    I think I work here.?

    Advice to Management

    If my recently uploaded 1-Pager, is a sign of:

    1) Tinder brokering the agreement
    2) Autodesk — in so many ontological words, having accepted my proposed offer of $390K annual [CASH]...

    ...then,

    3) We have a signed, sealed, and for all intents and purposes — delivered deal for I, Gustavo Borges Machado Valadao, to assume the role of Chief of Staff, Worldwide Field Operations for Autodesk.

    Pros

    Autodesk is a great company as a whole. Many wonderful benefits and people. and some really cool offices. However, you need to be prepared for the fast paced work and change as the norm. You must be a solid collaborator to succeed, regardless of the level of role you are in. If you are in a key city such as San Francisco, Boston, or Portland you should be able to have a long and exciting career.

    Cons

    Change is exhausting and you can expect to have a lot of managers over your career at Autodesk. It takes a long time to feel grounded upon entering the company. This is normal. Some divisions and team have better onboarding than others. Smaller offices don't get the same attention as the key cities but there are good things happening, just be aware you're not in the elite centers and may need to make an effort to be seen if you are seeking advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend additional job levels to better appeal to employees looking for modest advancement within their career path.
