    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    amazing people, exciting projects, very transparent management, work life balance, 6 weeks sabbatical, annual tech summits, UX summits, various platforms (Lyyda, Pluralsight..) for learning new technologies.

    Cons

    none that I can think of. Autodesk really cares about its employees. I highly recommend Autodesk.

    Advice to Management

    I am happy to see that we are focusing on subscription platform and cloud solutions and I hope we stay focused and deliver the results very quickly.
