Great culture, and we help our customers design and create amazing things.

Senior Manager, User Experience (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsAutodesk 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
