Excellent workplace
Contractor (Former Employee), Montréal, QCMarch 14, 2013
Pros: amazing coffee, bike garage, showers, fantastic former factory converted to office space
Cons: typical big company when it comes to layoffs to appease shareholders
While the company has what seems to be a very relaxed, "get your job done" atmosphere in the Montreal office, it also has some incredible perks. The cafeteria has an amazing espresso machine and coffee grinders to get you the best cup of coffee you will ever have at work (well, unless maybe you are a barista?). The bicycle garage is not only set up – more... to hold dozens of bikes, it has a workstand, tools, chain lube, cleaners, a compressor; and to underline how important cycle commuting is, the company holds (world-wide) an annual Bike to Work Challenge.
I found the overall approach to working at Autodesk pleasant and conducive to achieving the task at hand without undue pressure. In this apparently relaxed mode, people get things done.
I would go back there in a minute if asked.
I found everyone I needed to work with to be helpful, friendly, and beyond those I worked with I experienced a friendliness I have not seen in other workplaces.
I also found the sense of camaraderie meant working with people in other offices (around the world) went just as well as working with people locally. The company makes good use of the resources it has so people can collaborate despite great distances. – less

IT Helpdesk Specialist
IT Help Desk Specialist Americas (Current Employee), San Francisco, CANovember 19, 2014
Working at Autodesk is great for your resume, although the culture here is not the best. Many contractors, who are all treated not very well, singled out of everything. Not much room for growth unless you become a full time employee. I would definitely recommend this company if you would like to learn a lot, and set your self up with a good career. – more... Good place to kick off your career, but difficult to become a full time employee – less

Autodesk, INC.
Reception/Global Ergonomics Program Coordinator (Current Employee), San Rafael, CAOctober 9, 2014
Pros: welcoming environment, supportive team members, close knit.
Cons: contingent employees do not receive benefits and are excluded from many company activities.
It was very easy for me to move up within the company. Not only have I gotten to use my skills in a productive way, but I have also been able to learn new skills whilst on the job.

I enjoy working here because the environment is very friendly and welcoming. The management has not only been supportive of me moving up into different departments, but – more... have encouraged it. They seem like they actually care about your long term well-being and not just what is good for the department at that moment in time. – less

Lots of space for initiatives and fun workplace
Administrator, Customer Data and Project Manager (Former Employee), Neuchatel, SwitzerlandAugust 4, 2014
Pros: healthcare, regular promotions, dynamic environment
Cons: workload
Having EMEA roles involves liaising with various teams around the globe, which is extremely enriching.
There is space for initiatives, which the Management encourages and this helps going beyond one own's boundaries, and thus grow and improve.
Co-workers are friendly and ready to help.
With so many activities to deal with, there are not enough hours – more... during a working day,
The most enjoyable part of the job were those regular seminars, organized once or twice a year, where the whole group was gathered for 'professional entertainments', to discuss group strategy, punctuated with activities and games. – less

A great place to work
Manager, Learning Programs (Former Employee), San Rafael, CAJuly 21, 2014
Pros: very good benefits, decent pay, great stock purchase plan, incredible offices in sf (@one market, walk from the ferry!)
Cons: middle management can be... confused, re-orgs are frequent, re-deploys not so common but they still do happen.
You can easily fall in love with Autodesk. It's a great place to work - very cool technology, wonderful people, world-changing reach... one could spend their entire career at Autodesk and be quite happy. The work environment is the best in San Fran; not quite as wonderful in San Rafael but still good. The business is changing; moving away from the old-line – more... desktop software space into a full-on SaaS model. These changes can be painful at times, but senior management is not letting any grass grow beneath them as they work through it. All and all, very positive. You owe it to yourself to look here if you're in the market for a tech job. – less
