I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I did enjoy my work much of the time. Benefits were good, but not industry leading. Flexibility with working remotely or from home.

Cons

My project was a whirlwind. Management would change features/priorities every couple of weeks, but many features I needed to work on took much longer (months), leading to steal situations.

Advice to Management

Remaining flexible, agile, and ahead of the competition should be weighed against allowing time for quality features to be implemented.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    This is a old IT company so most of its projects are not fresh, and your colleagues are people in 35-40 ages.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs fresh man.

    "Overall good, but each group has its own unique dynamics that can cause much unnecessary strain on the job."

    I worked at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits such as a sabbatical after four years. Really interesting technology. Overall there is a flexible, family friendly work environment, but it is somewhat dependent on the group you are part of. Lots of training classes which are quite helpful, but trying to find time and approval to attend can be difficult

    Cons

    It can be very political. More than it needs or should be. That causes much stress. Groups are reorganized quite frequently often with good intentions, but the extra strain it causes has an impact on getting work done. As a result of these changes some people are put into managerial positions that they should not be in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close attention to how and how often groups are reorganized and workers shuffled around. Change is often good, but sometimes too much change is overly disruptive even if it is done to move a company in a promising direction.
