I thoroughly enjoyed working with Autodesk
Global Partner Services and Operations Specialist (Former Employee), San Rafael, CAMarch 27, 2014
Pros: meeting new people, internal cafe and waterpark close by
Cons: long commute
The daily global customer service and operation was intriguing and fascinating. This position was vital for my development with SAP, SalesForce, Seibel and Outlook. I became highly savy with the different systems and quickly became a specialist.

My co-workers were supportive, reliable and supportive. They were fun to work with and great team players.

The – more... most enjoyable part of my job was speaking different languages throughout the day (Spanish, Portuguese, English and Creole). – less

MANAGER OF SOFTWARE ENGINEERING (Former Employee), Saint LouisJanuary 29, 2014
Pros: work environment, co-workers, ability to learn
Cons: a bit of organized chaos
Autodesk is a great place to work. They really take care of their employees and deal with cool technology.

The Autodesk training programs are wonderful, especially ELP/ALP.

However, as with all large companies, sometimes communications are a challenge, especially between departments.

Good place to work under right management
Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee), San Rafael, CANovember 12, 2013
This is a great company to work if you are working with good managers. Flexible, but at times workload can be very heavy.

Some management is awful, which makes job security an issue. Several consultants make up the information systems of this company.

Great Work / Life Balance, great company culture
Software Development Intern, Big Data Analyst (Former Employee), Waltham, MAJuly 17, 2013
Super smart people, world-changing technology. Autodesk have managed to raise the lowly engineer to the level of Geek Superhero - in fact, they were just named one of the Universum Top 100 Ideal Employers for engineering students.

In the right role, one can change the future. Autodesk is a powerful enabler in many spaces, and smart, young people can – more... truly excel in this company.

Autodesk transformed drafting and design back in the 1980's, and they continue to lead the world in engineering technology, design, visualization and future techologies (e.g., additive manufacturing, green buildings and engineering simulation). Great benefits and above-scale pay. Super corporate stewardship for many sustainable efforts - Autodesk gives back to the world.

In the right team, you'll have fun while changing the world. The average Autodesker is more than just smart - he or she is probably a fun-loving prankster / comedian, too. Seriously, the work atmosphere is intense but when this they take a break from their task lists, the majority of functional teams have a great time together. This alone can make work at Autodesk very, very worthwhile. – less

Data Analyst - Enterprise Data Management Group (Current Employee), San Rafael, CAMarch 4, 2013
Pros: modern & clean building, free coffee.
Cons: unprofessional and dishonorable management
Was brought in as a temp. data analyst. Very unstructured and unprofessional work environment. People in my group were treated as 2nd class employees, work is very unstructured and often times leading to great confusion among analysts. Culture of fear, do not ask questions, just keep head down & do in order not get fired. I spoke up agains this, my – more... contract was not renewed. I was told it was due to speaking up but entire team was let go. Was then offered to come back in a similar department, apparently because I was a good worker in other department (?), refused due to insufficient pay and zero career advancement opportunities. – less

Goingplaces – July 10, 2013

I think I know the group you speak of. I am a former employee of the group I believe you must be in. To be fair, I don't think this kind of treatment is the norm at Autodesk, but unfortunately I have seen abusive management there several times. It amazes me that this sort of thing is allowed to happen, that people turn the other cheek or don't want to hear it. The bottom line is, if a manager is delivering, in some cases it doesn't matter how miserable that persons direct reports are. Hang in there. The good news is, Autodesk is a great place to grow, and opportunities often come up, if you stick it out and give it a try, you might find yourself in a great situation. Good luck.
