    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.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, if you are able to seek them and take them yourself.

    Cons

    Does not seem like an ethical company at times in its internal practices. Outwardly it does all the right things.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and clarity of message from not just the senior staff team but down the ladder is important. It seems as though there are a lot of internal agendas.

    Pros

    A dynamic company with a clear vision for the future and corporate strategy. Sales driven with amazing year on year growth that fuels product development and investment.

    Cons

    Change is constant as is restructuring, so you really do need to be adaptable and resilient to the ups and downs that come with it.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of work still to be done to reduce internal friction and breakdown the silos.

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

    Pros

    Unique, non-corporate culture where senior management are easily accessible and teammates are a bit like family. People tend either fit in well or won't enjoy life at Autodesk. Excellent job flexibility and very good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of company changes and re-orgs as the business continues to evolve from its past. Very ambitious targets makes work challenging. Not the best opportunities to progress in some teams.

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

    Pros

    Excellent technology employer who has made a successful flip to a subscription software model. They may be a 30 year old business, but it has a dynamic freshness, developing software solutions for customers to design and create a better world. Strong leadership, with a clear direction of travel and aspirations. An inclusive culture where you can thrive and develop a fulfilling career.

    Cons

    The matrix model of management can confuse some people & you have to build your network if you want to be really successful. Still lacking in some areas with female leadership, but at least the senior management recognise this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing with regards to culture....however needs to continue to bashdown silos between different groups......

    Change is continual at Autodesk making it a sometimes frustrating place to work when some areas of the business don't react as quickly as others
