Designing the future!

(Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsThe breadth of products and industries Autodesk covers is the best kept secret - this company is working on health care solutions, breakthroughs in sustainability, 3D printing and reality capture that are unbelievable (yet absolutely true), architectue incorporating revolutionary green solutions, gorgeous new automobile designs, media and entertainment frontiers (last 17 years of Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects all have used Autodesk software) and it goes on. Brilliant people, a culture based on teamwork and collaboration, cool offices in wonderful locations globally and huge flexibility as to working remotely.

ConsWorking in the tech space means you have to love the need for speed - Autodesk is no exception. As the company migrates its platforms to the Cloud and simultaneously keeps launching new apps and products, there is always something to do +/or learn about. This is the place to be if you love challenges, have a tolerance for ambiguity, and are self-driven. To accomodate all of this, the company is huge on worklife/balance - you just have to be able to meter your own choices and deliver results.

    Good balance of personal freedom

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    I worked at Autodesk full-time for more than 3 years
