IT Helpdesk Specialist
IT Help Desk Specialist Americas (Current Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 19, 2014
Working at Autodesk is great for your resume, although the culture here is not the best. Many contractors, who are all treated not very well, singled out of everything. Not much room for growth unless you become a full time employee. I would definitely recommend this company if you would like to learn a lot, and set your self up with a good career. – more... Good place to kick off your career, but difficult to become a full time employee – less

Autodesk, INC.
Reception/Global Ergonomics Program Coordinator (Current Employee), San Rafael, CAOctober 9, 2014
Pros: welcoming environment, supportive team members, close knit.
Cons: contingent employees do not receive benefits and are excluded from many company activities.
It was very easy for me to move up within the company. Not only have I gotten to use my skills in a productive way, but I have also been able to learn new skills whilst on the job.

I enjoy working here because the environment is very friendly and welcoming. The management has not only been supportive of me moving up into different departments, but – more... have encouraged it. They seem like they actually care about your long term well-being and not just what is good for the department at that moment in time. – less

A great place to work
Manager, Learning Programs (Former Employee), San Rafael, CAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: very good benefits, decent pay, great stock purchase plan, incredible offices in sf (@one market, walk from the ferry!)
Cons: middle management can be... confused, re-orgs are frequent, re-deploys not so common but they still do happen.
You can easily fall in love with Autodesk. It's a great place to work - very cool technology, wonderful people, world-changing reach... one could spend their entire career at Autodesk and be quite happy. The work environment is the best in San Fran; not quite as wonderful in San Rafael but still good. The business is changing; moving away from the old-line – more... desktop software space into a full-on SaaS model. These changes can be painful at times, but senior management is not letting any grass grow beneath them as they work through it. All and all, very positive. You owe it to yourself to look here if you're in the market for a tech job. – less

Happy and laid back work environment, difficult to advance in a technical career.
QA Analyst, Consultant (Former Employee), San Rafael, CAMay 6, 2014
Pros: laid back atmosphere
Cons: technical talent is not valued
What I Liked:
This was my first job out of college, where I worked as a QA consultant on a development team in the backend IT department. We followed Agile Scrum development, so a typical day started with a half hour Daily Stand up meeting where everyone got to discuss their progress on the current sprint's stories. I liked these meetings because I – more... would always know what the developers and other QAs were working on, and this made it easy to coordinate with the rest of the team.

Everyone had their own individual tasks to complete, but no one was ever so caught up in their own work that they couldn't stop to discuss something unrelated with another co-worker. In fact, verbal communication was an integral part of the job, since written documentation is a low priority in Agile development. If you are a lone-wolf type who likes to get things done without coordinating with others, then this sort of environment might not be a good fit.

The overall atmosphere seemed very laid back, and I never felt too pressured about meeting deadlines or working extra hours.

What I Didn't Like:
My department did not seem concerned with retaining technical talent, as most technical positions were filled by consultants and there was very few opportunities to be converted to an employee in a technical role. If you have a technical background and are looking to follow that career path, this is probably not the best place to grow.

The company is known for having frequent "Re-orgs", where new teams are sprung up, and existing teams get dissolved. This makes your future at the company seem very uncertain. In the best case, one of the new teams will require someone with your skill set and you can continue to have a job; Although you will be working on an entirely different project, with entirely different people. Worst case is that your skill set and knowledge is not relevant to the new teams and there's nowhere for you to go. This is what eventually ended my term at Autodesk. My team was dissolved and no other team had any interest in a QA or Developer with just over a year of experience in software development. – less

Global Partner Services and Operations Specialist (Former Employee), San Rafael, CAMarch 27, 2014
Pros: meeting new people, internal cafe and waterpark close by

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

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.
