    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Autodesk is an enjoyable working environment. They offer a great work life balance, flexibility to work from home or a CBD location. Great opportunities to travel domestically to suit your family life balance. Great career opportunities to move both vertically and horizontally within the organization, in Sales, Technical, and Management.

    Cons

    No cons at all. Great additional working perks.

    Pros

    At autodesk we live in a world surrounded by our customers, all with one vision, to “make” things. Whether it’s a highway, a building, a movie or a prosthetic limb for a dog our customers all find themselves turning to Autodesk software and platforms to make their ideas a reality. That’s what gets me out of bed every morning and that’s what inspires me to help “make” a better world.

    Cons

    Like all workplaces there’s the occasional thing to pick at, I’m honest when I say that our people our culture and our customers make the small stuff to small to share.

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring us all

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Autodesk for almost 8 years and in that time I have been fortunate to be given different opportunities along the way.

    I have been trusted with Flexibility of WFH and managing my work life balance (Most of the time :) )

    Cons

    Change and Restructures do happen but with most companies moving through business transformations, this is a must. If change isnt for you then do re-consider.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard! We have a very exciting opportunity ahead of us and I cant wait to see the benefits!

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We have a great and collaborative team culture. The direction of the technology and the philosphy of being a "customer company" really drive everyone works hard to succeed for our customers. We also celebrate our culture and success and people know how to have fun.

    Cons

    In order to adapt to the rapid pace of change of industry, technology and customers, the organisation is constantly evolving for the better - this means you have to keep up with the change and get on-board.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication coming, continue to hire and support great staff.

    I have been working at Autodesk full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with locally as well as a great global team.
    Excellent culture that continues to evolve. Demonstrated interest in creating an inclusive diverse workplace.
    Great policy on Work/life balance, allowing flexible hours and working from remote sites where possible.
    Managers rely on employees to be smart and effective (no seagull management), but are very supportive and encourage personal and technical growth.
    "A fun place to work" is a phrase often said as the intent of the CEO, but is also often misunderstood, yet It certainly can be a fun place to work if you let it.
    I find the work I do very rewarding and valuable.
    Compensation terms are quite good, as subjective as that may be.
    Most jobs offer some level of travel if only for the occasional training course, the amount required is highly varied. Travel is well supported.
    Acknowledges that every individual has strengths and something to add.

    Cons

    I often find myself working long hours, especially when working remotely.
    In some jobs the amount of travel required might not suit some people.
    Some activities require an early morning or late evening commitment occasionally, but I see this as being part of a global company with flexible hours.

    Advice to Management

    These are areas that I find important, and are often present in Autodesk managers.
    Support your staff in career in personal and development.
    The flexible work environment is key in today's work life balance.
