good company to work for

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Autodesk

ProsInteresting technology. Good salary and benefits. Security. Decent work-life balance. Flexible about work hours and work location (i.e., home vs office).

ConsRedundancy and confusion in the management structure. Hard to tell who is responsible for what. High ratio of managers to workers.

Advice to Senior ManagementOur group is made up of several groups that used to work independently of each other. They have been stuffed together in a way that doesn't really work. I assume this isn't unique to us, so I would suggest that exec staff identify and clean up this kind of overlap. Also, it seems like the managers are here in the US and most of the people doing the hands-on work are in China -- that is not so great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Was a great place to work. Now, they are interested in the bottom line and their fat bonuses.

Business Center Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Autodesk


Pros: Excellent benefits, nice working environment, casual atmosphere. The pay is decent, and time off is lenient and flexible. Dogs are allowed… Cons: Very poor senior management. Job openings are posted, but are already filled before posting, and usually by the hiring manager's favorites. Senior management far more… Advice to Senior Management: Stop trying to save money as your sole direction. Customer service is being sorely neglected in favor of typical big corporate greed. The CEO… More
