    I have been working at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    Great mission, good work-life balance, decent perks. Parts of the company are involved in truly innovative technology. Friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    Experiences vary from group to group, but generally bloated management level with poor communication. Too many bad decisions affected by politics and lack of realistic planning. Ahead of the curve in some ways, but behind the times when it comes to the technical expertise necessary for work that is increasingly in the cloud. Limited vacation time.

    Advice to Management

    Vision is not enough. Make people think through what it takes to deliver.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autodesk is a good company to work for, one of top 100 best companies to work for, exciting products, and software.

    Cons

    Short sided management view, continuous cost cutting, and can't hire qualified people.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees who are doing the great job, not who you know in your circle of close friends. CEO just cashed out 830K stocks and they claim not enough money to compensate employees who worked really hard during the year. RSU are distributed among their circle of trusted friends.
