Does Autodesk offer massages?

Pros

Great work/life balance. Little perks like automatic coffee machines to more manually operated ones. Seltzer water machines, snacks and social events to help you feel connected with your coworkers.

Cons

With the Exception of GPS, lots of things come with limitations for the support teams. The flexibility of where to work doesn't exist. The flexibility of working from home isn't the same. And with the switch from PTO to DTO, the "Week of Rest" where Autodesk shuts down around Christmas time is meaningless to the support teams as they still need to work. The culture code of being able to speak up (be brave) hasn't penetrated well into GPS. The most challenging part is compensation. Bonuses are great, raises, not so much. So the longer you work there, the farther you fall behind. And almost every year there is some sort of reorg and oddly it occurs right before your performance review. I've had twice as many managers than the number of years at Autodesk. Others have had it worse. And with the announcement of the new Hybrid (flexible workplace) position for everyone*, it turns out there were a lot of exceptions for support roles. Several people have left my immediate team since this hybrid announcement, and others like myself are looking to move on.

Advice to Management

Be actual leaders, not just managers. And if things are "too hard to think about," then are you really doing your job?

Does Autodesk offer a wellness program?

Pros

I left nonprofit work in the public sector to join Autodesk five years ago. I was afraid of joining the corporate world in that I would not fit in, or I would not be able to make a social impact in the same way. What I have discovered is the opposite. I have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest and most caring people I have ever met, and the ability for me to make progress on issues I care about has only been amplified.

Cons

Slightly lower salaries than other “big tech” companies, but the benefits (including wellness benefits, bonuses, stock options, volunteer and giving opportunities, flexible working options…) makes up for that.)
