Excellent work experience; ended too soon
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) –  Manchester, NHSeptember 19, 2017
My tenure was only 2 1/2 years. Our team was laid off. Prior to that, I very much enjoyed working at Autodesk and the commute was ideal - 10 miles. My office overlooked a river.
Pros
interesting work
Cons
layoff

Not people oriented
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 14, 2017
There are changes underway that may change the conditions, but for the past few years, this place has lacked any regard for the people working here. Really smart and engaged ppl, but treated like nameless resources and made to compete for projects in a way not benefitting the quality of what is offered to the customers.

Great technology, great compensation, smart smart engineers, management in training
Senior Management (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 30, 2017
Great technology, great compensation, smart smart engineers, management in training. Too much politics at the top. Management needs to do the right thing and not what's best for them. Too many butt kissers.
Pros
Technology, compensation, engineers/product teams
Cons
Management always in flux. A little too competitive at the top

great for certain roles but not others
SNR. CUSTOMER SUCCESS MGR (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAAugust 7, 2017
The new Business Model Transformation is a great idea but taking tolls of many great thinking minds of the company and frankly killing the culture on the services/ Customer Success side. Typical for a large corporation, their VP level has no clue what he's selling and seems to have taken a textbook adaptation of what he thinks Customer services should be. But, there are still amazing people and thinkers in the company and the technology is mind-bending when it comes to disruption and the future. Could be a good fit if you know what you're willing to handle in terms of corporate culture.
Pros
pay, benefits, long standing company
Cons
services culture, morale, lack of growth for certain roles

Great Potential, Lots of Politics
Marketing Programs Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 31, 2017
Autodesk is a great place to work in many ways. Work life balance is great, and there is always something cutting edge going on all around you. The work that customers do with the products is celebrated throughout the culture, and it is very cool.

Unfortunately, the company is plagued by a lot of politics. It is very difficult to get things done, and you will spend a LOT of your time "internally selling" as opposed to actually getting things done.

Customers have choices. The #1 job of growing a firms' business should be to deliver on what is promised and to focus on, and to delight the customer.

It's all about the work/life balance
Director (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 2, 2017

Pros
Great work life balance

Very political environment
