Great work/life culture, but slow for software company, lots of red tape

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Autodesk

ProsExcellent work life balance. They allow working from home, and allow a casual work environment. It's very much a "40 hour week" type of job. Good people , there are many "lifers" at Autodesk. Sabbatical (6 weeks straight off) every 4 years is a great perk. 12 days of PTO otherwise is not. Week of rest (between christmas and new years) is great.

ConsYou have to play the politics game well. There is a lot of red tape. Like any large organization, there are certainly inequities of promotions and favoritism. For a software company, it is a very "slow" organization. Change will not occur quickly, or even slowly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
