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

    Pros

    Promotes work/life balance and a very caring culture.
    Significant growth of the Company has provided development opportunities (at least laterally) for staff.
    Competitive compensation plans.

    Cons

    Lots of people stay a long time which means getting vertical climb is difficult.
    Lack of real focus to drive change - transformational change is not always successful.
    Overly-collaborative culture makes it hard to make decisions and move forward.

    Advice to Management

    More formal career development opportunities - develop some general management skills within the functional silos.
