    I have been working at Autodesk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits across the board with a great culture. Rewarding work being around so many bright, motivated people doing a lot of cutting edge stuff.

    Cons

    On-boarding can be very, very overwhelming and takes several months. It is well documented but often lacks the human interaction with many teams all being in different locations, not in person.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, what a great place to work with an open, diverse work force that treats everyone like adults. Promotion and upward mobility is there but hard to sometimes understand.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great energy and vibrancy. Great ethos and culture. Opportunities to travel and work around the world with motivated people. Great training in a variety of areas. Great conferences like TechX and AU to attend. A company that wants to make an impact.

    Cons

    Change and adaptability is expected of everyone which is not easy for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Having roles so focused on one thing for the vast majority and linking that to recognition is productive but limits the opportunity to collaborate.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    Great software, mainly good colleagues and nice offices

    Cons

    Very political and not particularly truthful. Claim to be a "Customer Company" when in reality decisions are taken solely on the benefits to Autodesk.

      I have been working at Autodesk full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good salaries, package, office, team.

      Cons

      Strategy changes every several months, instability, insecurity. Projects get stopped mid-way to change direction; frequent re-orgs; layoffs > low morale. Too many management layers. Often managers are not co-located with the team. Lots of politics, favoritism. No sense of doing something useful and meaningful as quite likely your project or even the entire product will be killed, because it does not fit this...

      Advice to Management

      Choose a strategy and actually follow it for at least couple of years. Do not change everything every several months.
