Review Highlights

Pros
  • Work life balance is great with remuneration offered being very competitive (in 85 reviews)

  • Also a fair amount of telecommuting / work from home options depending on the group you're in (in 23 reviews)


Cons
  • I would say that work/life balance suffers a bit at Autodesk (in 14 reviews)

  • Senior management is not interested in growing teams or promoting from within (in 22 reviews)
