DevOps Windows Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 6, 2018
The division has a lot of work that is manageable and the management sees it. They allow for great work life balance. However be careful of what manager you end out with. Some are great, some not so. Upper management is fantastic. All the people that I have ever worked with there have been fantastic!

Great workplace and culture but lacking on management
Revit and Navisworks Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 27, 2018
Awesome company and culture. Love the sabbatical after 4 years. Many activities and programs you can participate too bad you don't really have a lot of time available. As customer support specialist it's hard to find time to evolve and perfect your skills.
Pros
6 week sabbatical after 4 years
Cons
very poor onboarding, management is disconnected from real issues.

Technical-Consultant (Current Employee) –  weswood njNovember 25, 2018
My team is very friendly and my colleagues are always there for you in case you need help throughout the projects. I have learned the importance of collaborating with different teams to accomplish a common goal. the most enjoyable part of the job is the way some of the team members come together at the end of the month to mingle.

Senior Manager, Experience Design (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 15, 2018
Autodesk has to solve hard problems for designers, engineers, and makes in Architecture, Construction, Manufacturing, and Media & Entertainment. In terms of process, tech, and culture Autodesk tries continually to make the mark, and occasionally has come close to succeeding in the recent past.
Pros
Fascinating problem spaces and industries, employees
Cons
Antibodies to innovation are strong, combined with entrenchment that ebbs and flows

Autodesk provides amazing tools to its customers
Executive Assistant to VP* Global Customer Support (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 2, 2018
Autodesk provides amazing tools to its customers however the challenge ADSK faces is that it doesn't truly understand that the customer should always come first!

Great people, great benefits but a senior mgt team (c-staff) that misses the mark.
Pros
great people, great comp

misdirected

Best work life balance
Intern Machine Learning Engineer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 23, 2018
The company is operating in very niche market. The company has a very volatile management as a result there are concerns related to job security. The people working here are some of the best talent to see, and the company promotes healthy work life balance.
Pros
Great work life balance
Cons
Volatile management

Overall a great company
HR (Current Employee) –  Manchester, NHOctober 8, 2018
Overall Autodesk is an exciting company to work at. It's fast-paced and collaboration is a must. If you like meeting people from around the world and working with some of the best minds I would recommend Autodesk. The benefits are standard for the tech industry including paid sabbatical. In some parts of the country the salaries are highly competitive while in the big cities they have some work to do. City locations are not necessarily convenient for commuters.

I've had several managers over my career. All but one was what I would consider above average.

The most challenging aspect of working at Autodesk is the amount of change in the organization. You need to be resilient and and focus at the task at hand. Your seat may change. Your manager may change.

At the end of the day its the other co-workers that make your day special. People are kind to one another and truly care.
Pros
Great people and technology
Cons
Extremely fast-paced

Great place to work!
Localization Program Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 18, 2018
This is an awesome company, I'd highly recommend.
Like anyplace, it had issues and occasional office politics, but the general feeling you get working there is that people care, and most of them are really good at what they do. Consummate professionals.
Pros
Great place to work, caring and extremely professional colleagues.
Cons
Unfortunately there were annual layoffs while I was there, which I somehow avoided, but was bad for overall morale.

Channel Manager (Former Employee) –  USAAugust 23, 2018
I loved the technology, the people I worked with and the partners assigned. There were constant training and development which was wonderful. However, it wasn't uncommon to work through the night on many occasions to complete the many, many detailed and complex reports and forecasts. Lots of travel - which I loved - but could challenge some. Products are excellent as are the benefits. I really enjoyed the job.
Pros
Excellent products, training, benefits, partners
Cons
constant work, no life

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 28, 2018
As a high-tech company, Autodesk is on the leading edge of challenging work opportunities. This give everyone an opportunity to learn and be fully engaged - Good things! That said, they have a high frequency of company re-organizations, causing high employee attrition. This pattern creates a highly competitive environment among peers for future job security.

Brand Strategy & LUMA Program Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 16, 2018
The workplace is beautiful and work life is in balance. Not a lot of innovation is happening in the main body of employees at Autodesk. Its safe, pleasant for parents, money is spent in strange ways. Innovation seems to be happening with the sustainability and the R&D departments.
