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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and flexibility when needed
    Opportunity to voice concerns or ideas and management listens and helps to determine ways to bring the ideas to life
    People are genuinely nice and always willing to help or point in the right direction

    Cons

    Many people don't know how cool or awesome Autodesk is so there's a gap when trying to explain

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the Autodesk Brand and culture!

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great to see a project come to fruition

    Cons

    Jumbled hierarchy, teams are changed far too often, just the shiny ball syndrome

    Advice to Management

    Stop canceling projects when they are ready for release.

    Pros

    New CEO is a longtime Autodesker, he seems like a straight shooter. A steady hand during a time of transition.

    Cons

    We can be siloed - disparate teams should make it a point to interact once in a while so we give everyone a global perspective, rather than just seeing what is on our own desk at any given moment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. People seem happy, we're doing great work, the stock price is up, our products are revolutionary.

    Pros

    Company is going through transformation to a subscription business better than expected. Great products and really smart people on the team.

    Cons

    Going through the business change means that compensation for the sales team needs to be realigned for success. Make sure you hold onto strong people.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in employee development was one of the best parts of working here.
