    Autodesk - Progressive and Long Term

    Pros

    Autodesk has a very progressive culture and work environment. Diversity in all aspects is respected. Development teams have latitude to make decisions. Work conditions are flexible and there are great opportunities to improve skill set. Managers regularly ask employees what training they are interested in. Many of the staff in the Calgary office have been with Autodesk for 15+ years. Once you join, you will never want to leave. It is truly that great.

    Cons

    The Calgary office is small by Autodesk standards. Opportunities for a management career are limited if a person wants to stay in Calgary.

    Pros

    Employees are well trained for their positions and empowered to do their jobs. They are an industry leader and enjoy name recognition and credibility within its space. Products are well designed. New Hires are well vetted and they attract talented people. Leadership is there to help you meet the challenge. Very bright, inclusive, and people focused executive team.

    Cons

    Goals and expectations are high / stretch for the majority of sales reps. Multiple segmented sales & support teams as well as active resellers create extra work and complexities in many transactions. A lot of time spent dealing with aftermath of regular organizational changes & acquisitions and learning as they adopt new operational methodologies. Complex business with many points of contact can create opportunities for the customer to get confused - pre and post sale. Expect a lot of change and tweaks to sales teams that are made with little warning / on the fly.
