    Pros

    Great company for user centered design. Very interesting projects/products. Dedicated professional users. The company has a very good record of keeping employees for the long term.

    Cons

    Working with people on distributed virtual teams is very common and leads to longer hours. Waterfall software process is on the way but the transition to agile is slow in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership at Autodesk is solid and experienced- the people I work for seem to know what they're doing. Keep the focus on sustainability.

    Pros

    Autodesk is a leader within many of the markets it services. Its products are typically the standard by which other, competing products are measured.

    Cons

    Professional development is typically one of the first aspects to suffer from budgetary cuts. Product development is driven by schedule which often results in compromise.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the product line of those products that are not contributing to the bottom-line and beef-up support for those products that are paying the bills.
