Good place to work under right management
Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee), San Rafael, CANovember 12, 2013
This is a great company to work if you are working with good managers. Flexible, but at times workload can be very heavy.

Some management is awful, which makes job security an issue. Several consultants make up the information systems of this company.

Great Work / Life Balance, great company culture
Software Development Intern, Big Data Analyst (Former Employee), Waltham, MAJuly 17, 2013
Super smart people, world-changing technology. Autodesk have managed to raise the lowly engineer to the level of Geek Superhero - in fact, they were just named one of the Universum Top 100 Ideal Employers for engineering students.

In the right role, one can change the future. Autodesk is a powerful enabler in many spaces, and smart, young people can – more... truly excel in this company.

Autodesk transformed drafting and design back in the 1980's, and they continue to lead the world in engineering technology, design, visualization and future techologies (e.g., additive manufacturing, green buildings and engineering simulation). Great benefits and above-scale pay. Super corporate stewardship for many sustainable efforts - Autodesk gives back to the world.

In the right team, you'll have fun while changing the world. The average Autodesker is more than just smart - he or she is probably a fun-loving prankster / comedian, too. Seriously, the work atmosphere is intense but when this they take a break from their task lists, the majority of functional teams have a great time together. This alone can make work at Autodesk very, very worthwhile. – less

Data Analyst - Enterprise Data Management Group (Current Employee), San Rafael, CAMarch 4, 2013
Pros: modern & clean building, free coffee.
Cons: unprofessional and dishonorable management
Was brought in as a temp. data analyst. Very unstructured and unprofessional work environment. People in my group were treated as 2nd class employees, work is very unstructured and often times leading to great confusion among analysts. Culture of fear, do not ask questions, just keep head down & do in order not get fired. I spoke up agains this, my – more... contract was not renewed. I was told it was due to speaking up but entire team was let go. Was then offered to come back in a similar department, apparently because I was a good worker in other department (?), refused due to insufficient pay and zero career advancement opportunities. – less

I think I know the group you speak of. I am a former employee of the group I believe you must be in. To be fair, I don't think this kind of treatment is the norm at Autodesk, but unfortunately I have seen abusive management there several times. It amazes me that this sort of thing is allowed to happen, that people turn the other cheek or don't want to hear it. The bottom line is, if a manager is delivering, in some cases it doesn't matter how miserable that persons direct reports are. Hang in there. The good news is, Autodesk is a great place to grow, and opportunities often come up, if you stick it out and give it a try, you might find yourself in a great situation. Good luck.

Pros: creative people and innovative products!
Cons: slow decision making at times
Autodesk's products have such impact in the world and it's inspiring to come to work every day! The people and culture are better than any other company I've worked in . It's a start-up culture within a stable environment. The shift to cloud, mobile and social is exciting!

Overall decent company, but it could be a lot better
analyst (Current Employee), San rafael, caSeptember 21, 2012
mediocre management, company has good market share, global leader on CAD but survives by inertia, capitalizing on old products brands. Nice people and environment, but career opportunities are scarse. Very political organization, mediocre managers are promoted because of connecions rather than real management and people skills.

A great company in CAD
Senior Research Engineer (Current Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 11, 2012
Pros: work-life balance, benefits
Cons: hard to read managers even just one level above (own manager) in my department
Autodesk is a great company to work for in general. Excellent work-life balance and overall benefit. Its niche is in CAD, where it really dominates. However, in the field that I'm working in (simulation), Autodesk is still searching for directions.

Productive Working environment
Major Utility Account Business Manager (Current Employee), Richmond, VASeptember 3, 2012
Pros: personal leadership, sales freedom / independence, great work environment
Cons: restructures, new management on annual basis and lack of executive understanding on long term utility sales cycles
Autodesk provides a strong work ethic based company. A typical day includes several interactions with various customer opportunities - progress - since they are generally Long Term Sales Cycles which could last nearly 2 years.
The challenges faced at Autodesk is my current position is under a direct purchase model which is counter culture to Autodesk's – more... Reseller / Channel model used on 90% of their business.
Several restructures have challenged the Major Utility group with new Managers uneducated on the industry and other management who does not comprehend the complexity nor longevity of our sales cycles.
My co-workers (remote) are a great team and easy to coordinate project opportunities and successful action plans. – less
