    Pros

    Good company benefits and treatment of employees. Generally, nice people to work with and collaborate. Some very scary smart people at Autodesk.

    Cons

    The scary smart people should not necessarily be in leadership positions. Carl Bass as CEO is very weak CEO. He is practical, smart, and somewhat visionary. He does not provide clear direction and is generally looks at the negative at most things. The company has an eclectic culture due to so many acquisitions so the leadership should really work to integrate teams and work on this more diligently.

    Advice to Management

    Show more commitment to the employees. Be willing to take more risks and not let legal dictate how business should be run.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Great people

    There are many excellent senior employees around, including some pretty renowned graphics experts in both industrial and academic fields. Also, most senior employees are very proficient in software development.

    2. Excellent work life balance

    Working here is great pleasure. you should be able to enjoy many events that autodesk holds, and you'll love hanging out with your co-workers for sure.

    3. Best employer for new graduates

    Autodesk has a very nice mentor mechanism that helps new graduates with everything s\he should know and grasp. New graduates can learn quite a lot that will benefit for her\his whole career. This is the best thing that I can think of about Autodesk.

    Cons

    1. Politics EVERYWHERE

    After you get more comfortable with your work and wanna a further development, I'm telling you it is definitely NOT a smooth experience. You have to tackle the complex politics in office. You need spend quite a lot brain cycles and efforts to please your manager, and your co-workers. After time, you'll find you cannot enjoy your work as before, because you would probably be challenged by ones those think you've threatened their positions.

    2. Unbalanced management structure

    This may explain #1. One manager, or architect, controls everything of your work. If you are not getting along with her\him\one of them, you are done. Change a team then. There's nothing you can do with it. Nothing in management is balanced.
