Each day is challenging and smart people work at the company. Career advancement is possible if you are willing to move from department to department. Politics at the company run at high levels. The further you advance in your career, the more the work becomes about managing VPs and appearances.

When the senior management is confused, you know what it means...Change is not bad, but if the infrastructure and human capital are both not ready for huge change, then it results confused management and huge amount of frustration and wasted work...

I love working for Autodesk and everything it stands for. However, it really depends on which team you are working for. Some organizations have highly dysfunctional senior leadership while others have better leaders. If you are considering working here, be extra assertive with compensation and benefits, or you will be lowballed at every turn.

Enjoy the best years of my employment in my professional career in Autodesk, especially working on big research projects with external partners, and enjoy working with my long time colleagues, some of them over 15 years long, and very good working relationship. However, Autodesk laid out employees in a few rounds, in some unexpected fashions. I lost some long time colleagues and good hard-working team members during my years with Autodesk.
Excellent compensation / benefits, talented people to work with

For the most part a great place to work. You are expected to work hard long hours, but they reward good work and most of the people are great. However, don't speak out about senior management because there will be repercussions and you will likely find yourself in the unemployment line during the almost annual layoff cycle.
