Incredible company with unparalleled benefits, if you can keep up with its dynamic nature.

I have been working at Autodesk full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great people, love the benefits (including a 6 week sabbatical after 4 years), diverse solution portfolio which allows for many options to move within the company. Excellent technology, often best of breed in the industry.

Cons

Very political in nature, seemingly endless reorgs, and sometimes product development seems to take much longer than usual. Very siloed as a company which can be a challenge to get things done. Names change so much, with acronyms, there is an "Autodesk dictionary" to keep track.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Would like to see a much clearer employee development program, as well as a more fanatical approach to customer satisfaction.

    I have been working at Autodesk as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a very flexible schedule, with ability to work remotely, required vacation time, a fair bit of contact with upper management, and they are constantly acquiring great and exciting companies!

    Cons

    Not many young people- they could do more university grads but great flexibility in the working environment and happy employees!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As with any big company, the upper management could always be more transparent and the process could be less bureaucratic, but I think they are working to be more clear.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autodesk is a global company with growing market share around the world. It has been consistently rated high in "best places to work" lists, and employees have a voice and are listened to by management. Experience and design are central to our mission, and there are opportunities in consumer-facing teams (iOS, Instructables) as well as professional markets (Architecture/Engineering, Product Design, Simulation) - there are even new groups working on 3D design tools for genetics and biotech.

    Cons

    Engineering-driven culture, but this is starting to change as cloud/social/mobile and "experience" play an increasing role in the company's goals.
