It's all about the work/life balance
Director (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 2, 2017
Each day is challenging and smart people work at the company. Career advancement is possible if you are willing to move from department to department. Politics at the company run at high levels. The further you advance in your career, the more the work becomes about managing VPs and appearances.
Pros

Very political environment

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...

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

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.
