    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and flexibility when needed
    Opportunity to voice concerns or ideas and management listens and helps to determine ways to bring the ideas to life
    People are genuinely nice and always willing to help or point in the right direction

    Cons

    Many people don't know how cool or awesome Autodesk is so there's a gap when trying to explain

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the Autodesk Brand and culture!

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance

    Same as our shareholders, I'd love to see more growth of the company.

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

    Pros

    Vibrant company, influencing the world. Mix of age ranges within the company. Flexible work schedule and work-life balance promoted. Offices are nice but you need to be able to work in an open environment.

    Cons

    In some groups, it's hard to get promoted, or receive a significant raise. There's a new CEO, and a couple SVP's have left. So the company is going through some change.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are quite a few - so I’ll start with the most important - the leadership. I’ve only worked at one other technology company who’s leadership is fully aligned from the top down, from messaging to ensuring each one of its associates has the tools needed to succeed. There is full definition behind our corporate initiatives and leadership makes its a priority for you to completely understand ipthem. The second point is the team I’m apart of. You read in other companies reviews (I’m referring to the ones I’ve worked for of course) states, “everyone is so willing to help you” but I’ve experienced the opposite on quite a few occasions. Not here! People will absolutely drop what they’re doing, call you after hours and set aside as much time as you need to understand and then action to success. I’m very blessed to be a part of this organization! The pay is wonderful. There is actual work/life balance at a tech company - but you don’t mind putting forth the extra effort/work when you know it’s appreciated. We don’t need a pat on the back everyday, but Autodesk understands the importance of showing they value each associate. Phenomenal place to work.

    Cons

    We are going through changes but this isn’t a “con” to me. We are evolving to ensure the success of our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work of moving us in the best direction to stay the world class leader we already are.

    I worked at Autodesk full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, Sabbatical, personal and professional development, opportunities to grow/advance, great services

    Cons

    Not unlike most corporations: politics and managers who aren't leaders

    Pros

    I love the atomosphere here. It's friendly and organized, especially when it comes to everyone participating in the organized LUMA methods to discuss ideas.

    Cons

    People sometimes works in a silo and different teams lack of communication to each other.

    Advice to Management

    Could improve the collaboration between different departments.

    Pros

    - Work / Life integration
    - Great Mission
    - Great People
    - Great Benefits

    Cons

    - Alphabet Soup of Reorgs can be confusing
    - Rumor mill can run rampant at times
    - No direct career paths for employees
    - Commute time (can't afford to live closer to work)

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate. Andrew is doing a good job but middle managers need to address rumor mills.

    I worked at Autodesk (More than a year)

    Pros

    I interned here last summer as a content strategist. Everyone here truly wants to make things better. People have honest intentions and the company is extremely transparent.

    Cons

    Getting hired/ the on boarding process is all very hush hush. I wish more people would talk about it. It's like everyone wants to keep Autodesk to themselves.
