    Former Employee - Middle Manager in San Francisco, CA

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very low pressure compared with most tech jobs... a 10am till 3pm working environment
    Autodesk has a dominant position in a few segments, particularly with AutoCAD in drafting
    Salary and lifestyle are very good
    Most offices have good working environments

    Cons

    Really average executive team ( a few bright sparks) who have been in positions without consequence of failure (all the poorly executed acquisitions and low growth in new segments)... incredibly self serving bunch who have lost the trust of most middle managers
    There are some fantastic business units to work in, but it all gets lost in bland corporate strategy... just visit the web site to see how hard it is to understand what Autodesk's brand and direction are?
    A lot of crony behavior. If you like to fluff your VP instead of the customer, this is the place for you!
    Since Carol Bartz left, much of the buzz and drive has been absent... what was left departed when they fired the much loved EVP Sales last year
    Internal staff satisfaction measurements are showing increasingly worse results every year

    Advice to Management

    Stop , look, listen... and I don't mean get HR to do a survey
    Customers view Autodesk as a cost of doing their business, not a business partner
    Your channel are signing up with other vendors
    Your staff have given up thinking and working the extra hours... they don't see the point
    It feels like a sick company right now... but nobody dare say it
