You get to work with a lot of cool technology and things you do seem very meaningful. Management is super easy going and there was never any trouble. The work is hard but people are always willing to hard. Honestly nothing bad to say other than the lighting in the office isn't great, so it can get a bit gloomy. But otherwise it was fantastic.
The company is prestigious the office is great but the managers are horrible. HR are not helpful. They will say Work/Life Balance but they will not make you feel that way. This is a modern company with a very very horrible management who run it as if we are still in the 80's. Check the Integrity and Character of your managers. Check how they treat their employees. No one will last in that department until you do something about it.
Managers who are soft spoken does not mean they are nice. They are the ones who will stab you behind your back They will micro manage you until you die. Check the turn over rate of the departments in this location.
Tip: Do not go to HR if you have complaints. You will not be heard. They will not do anything. For your own sake, resign and move on. That is the best that you can do.
There are a lot of nice people but just be careful with managers. They will eat you alive.
It will be a very good company only if run by wonderful managers
Worked for 5 years and some fo the management and hr practices are just unethical. You stay quiet and heads down of you're a woman and figure a way out as there will be little options up. The culture is plagued by silos and cutthroat petty managers who dont think twice about firing you if you speak out.
co-workers were nice and friendly, they were willing to help with anything you had trouble with
learned different software, improved communication skills,
enjoyable part was - communicating with people around the world, learning as many different software there is, using 3D printers to bring the CAD models into life
Good corporate culture. Some long days and hard work as is to be expected. Great people to work with. I would go back to work there in a heartbeat. Great teams and good people to work with. I did not mind putting in the hours to get the jobs done right.
Really good coffee. Really good people. They pay fairly well.
Too willing to cut good people to please wall street.

Worked at Autodesk for over 10 years..
Software was amazing and fun to work with.
Some good , friendly employees of all ages.
Salary was good ! Met nice people.
Management was horrid, Horrid. Many employees, friends told me they felt threatened but were often distrustful to complain to HR as they'd fear retaliation and be put on the cutting block when time for layoffs came by.
I noticed people who confronted management, spoke up, were often cut several months later or during layoff times.
Their HR needs to Record All conversations managers have with employees >One on ones and group meetings.
Some managers put on the "i'm nice voice" if they are in public meetings. Totally different in private meetings.
Threatening people, humiliating them , is not the way to get
more productivity out of a person. Sadly, this was told to me by many.
Putting lists of employees on a company internal website/dashboard, showing who's doing well and who is not > that's just mean , ignorant and lacks empathy. Such is the nature of some of their management /divisions.
Salary good but no sense of security by majority of employees.
When it comes to layoffs, they'll cut anyone / anytime , Out of the blue, to appease shareholders. Usually before Christmas or in the summer.
As another wrote earlier > some divisions are so badly managed. Folks with no actual real world experience make decisions while ignoring advice of seasoned employees who do have real production experience.
Good place to get your feet wet in the industry and move - plus...
Horrid managers, threatening people is not a good way to treat employees.
