    Pros

    They are very flexible - me and several co-workers are exclusive remote employees. Compensation is also quite high.

    I have been working at Autodesk (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots to learn, hundred of cool products and services many industries and professional designers and makers. Flexible work environment and transparent management.

    Cons

    Paradoxically, too many products can often lead to adverse brand identity and focus. Tightening up the product line and strategy and continued focus on cloud and mobile offerings should help.
