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

Pros

Great people, great products, nice working environment, opportunities for career moves within company. Excellent benefits.

Cons

Half-baked reorganizations that don't make business sense are a regular event. It feels as if C-staff isn't able to make hard decisions. There is a still an old-boys/friends of Carl club. Not many women at the highest levels.

Advice to Management

Be disciplined and make tough decisions. Articulate a crisp strategy.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Product groups are working on incredible products and services. If you consider a job at Autodesk, make sure it is within one of the product divisions. Outside of those organizations, you are taking a big risk.

    Cons

    Corporate staff engrained with "old timers" who have significant power and make sure they use that power to drive their own agendas. I have never been more excited to work somewhere and have never been more disappointed.

    In some areas there is work life balance, but it all depends on who you work for.

    Advice to Management

    Outside of the product divisions, start bringing in some new people. You've got some Directors and VPs who do anything to protect their little kingdoms. They aren't leaders, they are survivors.
