Approves of CEO

I have been working at Autodesk full-time

Pros

- little in the way of office politics, lots of genuinely good people
- sabbatical benefit after 4 yrs

Cons

- old school Tech company (slow growing, tight budgets)
- lack of transparency and bureaucracy

Advice to Management

move headquarters to San Francisco

Agreed that office politics are little to none here. More to come in the San Francisco location, we're expanding utilization and potentially space.

    Pros

    It's a huge company and has tons of resources. Everyone knows Autodesk so it's not hard to have conversations with customers. Compensation plan is pretty good.

    Cons

    It takes forever to get anything done. Endless meetings. Dozens of people involved in making simple decisions. Keep your head down and go with the flow and you can survive most of the reorgs. Reorgs are pretty regular.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of goals and direction of company - good and bad news. Need updates more often than once a year "message from the mountaintop."
