Approves of CEO

I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Smart developers working on some of the more interesting and challenging kinds of applications. Senior management has a good direction for the company. Flexible environment--easy to work from home.

Cons

Salary increases and fringe benefits are meager. It doesn't feel like the company is growing. People in the office lack confidence in middle management.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    Great people, good culture, nice work life balance.

    Company stuck in traditional software dev cycle of 1 release each year. No strong web marketing leadership or understanding of web in general. See web like software development.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Amazing work environment with phenomenal facility at the San Francisco office.
    Great company culture. (Comparable to Google/FB w/o all the crazy pressure)
    Great pay with relaxed hours. (13th highest tech intern pay in bay area)
    Serious opportunities for advancement.
    Intensely customer driven progress model. Calls with customers to get real world real time feedback to keep your perspective fresh and innovative will be a weekly occurrence.
    One of the best places to launch a career according to Forbes and I couldn't agree more.
    Perks include 6 week mandatory paid sabbatical every 4 years in addition to standard paid time off.
    Ability to work anywhere in the world as you advance and/or move around. Even the meetings with everyone in the same building are often telemeetings because the telemeeting abilities throughout this company are excellent.

    Cons

    Only one employee resource group (ERG) for women. No LGBT. No handicapable. No ethnic ERGs. The didn't provide housing to the interns and gave us a stipend instead. It created a huge hassle for me since I was only in the Bay Area for 3 months during a massing housing crunch. Most of the other tech companies do this for interns because it makes the experience so much less stressful and/or better. HUGE corporate structure. There are literally 100s of VPs, who report to ~10 Senior VPs who report to the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep up the great work, particularly with the ecosystem model. It's power is really starting to launch things for this company.
