Pros

Great people building innovative software. Excellent work life balance. Awesome Gallery to showcase companies using our software. New branding really helped to show our contribution to the 3D space.

Cons

Not as design centric and progressive as they could be but they are on their way...need more communication from the top down on a solid direction.

Advice to Management

More transparency with a solid direction and goals...Integrate depts more get rid of the silos..

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Autodesk is truly an amazing place to work. As a company its different - it's not your typical heartless corporate entity out to make money. It cares about the employees, customers, environment, and the planet as a whole. This sentiment pervades through the company and its palpable. People are genuinely friendly and attrition rate is really low.

    Cons

    The work culture is almost too collaborative for Autodesk's own good. There are too many meetings and emails about the littlest thing. Middle management don't feel empowered to make decisions and leave it to VPs to make the call. Product decisions are top-down. Product managers are always looking for approval from executives to make tough calls. Too many levels of management and people are well entrenched make it difficult for people aspiring to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some new blood to freshen the culture, empower teams to go do it.
