I have been working at Autodesk as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Hardworking and vocal employees
As an intern your hours are flexible
San Francisco office has a museum with all of Autodesk's work as well as 3-d printing
Very nice staff

Cons

The San Rafael office is lack luster from what I've heard, so they bring clients their San Fran office which has the Autodesk museum.

Advice to Management

Overall I think management is in a good place

    I worked at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    Amazing people
    Great Work/Life balance
    Great products
    Solid positioning in the design field

    Cons

    Totally inefficient organization - Senior management seriously lacks experience and ambition, work for own interest only
    Political game present everywhere - a lot of promises and projects are started, but nothing ever gets done !
    No opportunity for advancement through hard work - you have to be "a friend of"

    Advice to Management

    A big cleanup is absolutely required - but this time don't just reorg by shuffling senior managers around - Get rid of those who haven't proven their worth through results and hard work, promote hard workers and people with ambition.
