January 2018

As much as Autodesk praises themselves for supporting women, there are still fewer women getting promoted and there is an existing pay gap between women and men.

Be prepared to constantly feel the need to prove yourself for advancement in this company. Until something changes, you will always be second to the male employees.

    Flexibility depends on your department and your manager. Most managers are flexible and accomodating, but the stigma that comes with it within the culture is bad. A big part of that problem is the constant abuse of the flexibility and lack of accountability. It penalizes the conscious, hardworking employees and encourages the ones with a lack in work ethic. This is a major issue within the organization as a whole. The company needs more accountability.

Working for yourself is hard but rewarding work! If you've dreamt of starting your own business begin your side hustle and slowly work your way to a successful business.

April 2017

The part-time pay rate and lack of benefits in my role made this an unfeasible employer for the long-term, but other positions (i.e., salaried) would have better options.

The work culture is oppressive and there isn't a lot of space to express your ideas.

December 2015

I went to work there for someone knowing this would be short term & they had tremendous challenges in this department.Our department was mainly women who do not support each other, sandbagged each other, stole credit for others work, used bad management practices, contradicted HR policy & generally make this department unpleasant. The individual in charge of the department pits people against each other. Young librarians come in, get experience for a year or so and then move on. Not all departments are like this but it is incredibly difficult to gain credibility with anyone in the general organization when you give a differing opinion from the department head. I would only recommend this department unless no other job materializes. I would be careful in the general organization. State benefits are better then average benefits & am aware of individuals staying in demoralizing jobs because they cannot afford to lose the benefits. Unfortunately because of budget constraints most of the jobs that are newly created are part-time. In this department there is only one degree, MLS, that is given any credibility or weight. It is a community college setting. The benefits are the only positive that I can give at this point. Benefits are only available for full-time employees.

If you are willing to work hard you will be recognized. They not only have diversity policies but they actually follow them. I was very happy with both the men and women in leadership positions there. However, maintaining a work life balance will be difficult.
