    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."

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    U.S. 6 week paid sabbatical every 4 years...You'll need it. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers thickly layered throughout. Every manager has to give 20% of their direct reports poor ratings on their yearly review so you could play the politics and not work as hard/be as savvy and make way more than a co-worker who gets things done well all year but doesn't kiss up.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some of the layers of incompetent, ineffective managers below you. It's a funnel of idiocy that has no real function!
