    Managmenet threatening their employees, with statements
    Such as "I will pull the trigger like I did to so n so".
    Management micro management of employees.
    Management's lack of knowledge of what everyone in
    The departments job functions are.
    Telling management the truth about whats happening.
    Human resources as they make you believe they are on
    Side, when they always back the company or manager.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of people that have all the knowledge
    And getting rid hard workers.
    Even though management doesn't want to hear the truth,
    They should take a hard look at what's going on in their department.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great perks! Great benefits, bring your dog to work in some locations, flex time, etc. Good training and development programs, possible career growth, but very polictical. Nice people...everyone is friendly.Great products.

    Cons

    Their motto is work hard, play hard...and it is very demanding company. They don't do conflict well. If you disagree with the status quo, you are looked at as a trouble maker. So, everyone agrees with the status quo, but trashes this issues or problems behind managements back. They don't talk about the 'white elephant' in the room or are direct about anything. Very polictical.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that conflict is ok, from disagreements, great break though and ideas can come. HR is afraid of conflict and it is suppressing the creative of the company. No one can be open or authentic. They is a lot of fear about being open and authentic there.
