Approves of CEO

I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

My team is top notch, fun, experimental and personable. I've never had such a warm welcome when starting a new job. The company vision and direction are inspiring. I'm a happy employee!

Cons

Can be difficult to access the top level needs of the business, but this may come with time. The very flexible work culture can make access to key individuals difficult at times.

Advice to Management

Keep up the expansion into new markets, be sure to communicate, communicate, communicate.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Autodesk as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good support system, great events, expansive product line.

    Cons

    Lots of duplicated work and tasks because this company is so big. Product updates are slow and client satisfaction is low due to their business model of acquiring products rather than developing them internally from inception.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the licensing cost structure. Create more and acquire less.
