Confused senior management
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 14, 2017
When the senior management is confused, you know what it means...Change is not bad, but if the infrastructure and human capital are both not ready for huge change, then it results confused management and huge amount of frustration and wasted work...

Customer Support Team Lead (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 11, 2017
Autodesk has so many opportunities for its employees! They are truly committed to you and you will find yourself in a better position leaving (if you ever do), then when you were hired.

Great Company Depending on Your Team
Consulting Project Manager, CSS Division (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 30, 2017
I love working for Autodesk and everything it stands for. However, it really depends on which team you are working for. Some organizations have highly dysfunctional senior leadership while others have better leaders. If you are considering working here, be extra assertive with compensation and benefits, or you will be lowballed at every turn.

Productive but over the hill
Senior Principal Research Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ithaca, NYDecember 23, 2016
Enjoy the best years of my employment in my professional career in Autodesk, especially working on big research projects with external partners, and enjoy working with my long time colleagues, some of them over 15 years long, and very good working relationship. However, Autodesk laid out employees in a few rounds, in some unexpected fashions. I lost some long time colleagues and good hard-working team members during my years with Autodesk.
Pros
Excellent compensation / benefits, talented people to work with
Cons
Sudden loss of an entire team

Autodesk is a good place to work.
Manager (Current Employee) –  San Rafael, CADecember 13, 2016
The vacation is limited in the US but they try to offset it with offering a sabbatical every 4 years. They are very good to the community. The employees are very dedicated and bright.
Pros
Sabbatical, good to the community

Great benefits, but very politcal
Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Lake Oswego, ORDecember 4, 2016
For the most part a great place to work. You are expected to work hard long hours, but they reward good work and most of the people are great. However, don't speak out about senior management because there will be repercussions and you will likely find yourself in the unemployment line during the almost annual layoff cycle.
Pros
Pay, benefits and interesting products
Cons
Senior management

Great company
WHT-Accountant/CFS-Corporate Finance (Current Employee) –  Manchester, NHSeptember 15, 2016
Great organization.

Management very flexible,accessible, and well informed about the work that needs to be done, and overall willing to give you the support the you need. Supervisors are not always looking over your shoulder and you are given space to implement new ideas about the processes.

I was given the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills and also to learn from my co-workers. I got a lot of support from everyone around me with not hesitation or reserve.

Great working environment. Benefits are good and good work/job balance.Company held and promote workers-social gathering within the facilities or outside the facilities. The facilities are great (very clean and modern. Co-workers are always willing to help no matter in what part of the country (USA) or over-sea they are located.

Some positions have the option to work from home or at the office. This is a very technological oriented organization.
Pros
Flexible and open to sugestions
Cons
none

Delcam (Co-op), Applications Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fort Washington, PAAugust 31, 2016
It was a great place to work not much else to say. Everyone worked together and everyone's ideas were put to use. I traveled about 50% of my time with the company. The travel was almost always 5 days at a time and almost never 2 weeks in a row.

Partner Service Representative (Current Employee) –  San Rafael, CAAugust 24, 2016
I really enjoy my time working at Autodesk the environment is very open and the people to work with are very nice.My major complaint is it is very difficult to apply anywhere else internally. If you are working through a contract you could be let go at any moments notice without any notification ahead of time.

Bad management, Dirty politics, Constant layoffs
Solutions Architect (Former Employee) –  San Rafael, CAAugust 10, 2016
Dirty politics played by bad management because they don't have the skills to do the job.

Regular layoffs for people who don't cater to managment.

Steady outsourcing increase so no job security.

Upper management burning reserves buying incompetent companies.
Pros
Minimal micromanagement
Cons
Management politics, layoffs, outsourcing increasing, Incorrect reserves use
