I have been working at Autodesk full-time

Pros

Great products, great customers, fantastic reach into the design, engineering, and media communities.

Cons

Reorgs, reorgs, reorgs. Pidgeon-holed job descriptions that split authority without clearly defining authority. Lack of trust of junior and mid-level managers. Long legal processes. Lack of budget authority. Extreme matrixing.

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging, provide a career path for employees, and trust your very smart people.

    I worked at Autodesk as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All colleagues are very friendly. They help me a lot and I gain useful skills and experience. Also, the culture and environment there is wonderful.

    Cons

    I do not think there are some cons for Autodesk. Other interns also feel happy to work for Autodesk and learnt a lot.

    Advice to Management

    The management is relatively flexible and for interns, we are not pushed hard. Managers and mentors always encouraged me to try my best. So I have no specific advice.

    Pros

    Great compensation, benefits and incentives.

    Cons

    Terrible management, too much bureaucracy, no engineering process.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to the employees, put some good engineering practices in place (code reviews, continuous build system, unit testing, etc.). Stop protecting bad managers.
