Software Development Intern, Big Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Waltham, MA – July 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 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.
Great culture but complexity and change is constant
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco – December 12, 2017
Difficult to advance as management doesn't focus on your career growth as much as they should. Company has been going through constant change so job security is hard to maintain, navigating the complex structure is also tough but culture and benefits are great along with having highly skilled employees.
