It's Made by Autodesk!
I would say that Autodesk lacks synergy.
You know that with companies like PTC, Dassault, Solidworks - you're getting that one product (excluding some data management things) and the focus and money is going into the further development and support of that one product.
I don't think a lot of people are all to keen on the thought of a "microsoft of cad" in the form of Autodesk, while it can have certain advantages (such as better interoperability between products). I don't believe they weigh up to the negatives of these possible outcomes: less focus, less competition, less innovation, higher prices, out-of-touch with customers.
