    Pros

    Spacious and bright downtown Toronto office.

    Cons

    I worked at Autodesk in Toronto for a number of years. My direct manager created a toxic work environment with childish, vindictive behaviour. He had a brazen attitude towards workplace norms; comments and "jokes" directed at female colleagues would make everybody present uncomfortable. Unfortunately, upper management took no corrective action after being made aware of the manager's behaviour. I ended up choosing to leave after much soul-searching.

    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.
