A company that would rather lose 10 good employees than fire a bad manager.

Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) Manchester, NH

ProsYou get to work with cool software. The office environment, spacially, is beautiful. There's opportunity to move geographically if you want or need to.

ConsLots of long term, embedded fat in the employee base. Most are entrenched into cliques of past bought-out companies. Management allows some employees to surf the web all day while other workers pick up the slack. Their review/compensation process is used as a cowardly payback system by disgruntled peers. It was by far the most juvenile, petty, and viscious environment that I have ever worked.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen an entire group rebels against a manager year after year with consistent, horrific reviews, perhaps you should replace the manager rather than let your best talent walk out the door with years of knowledge. Don't relocate the problem so another group will suffer; let the person go. Your loyalty to incompetant managers is your achilles heel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Autodesk, not perfect but still great place to work!

    Database Administrator (Current Employee) San Rafael, CA

    I have been working at Autodesk

    Pros: Autodesk is a great place to work simply because of the people.
