About Autodesk

What is it like to work for Autodesk

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
One Autodesk employee "banked" their volunteer hours and spent some time participating in a volunteer program in Salvador, Brazil. The placement was working at a Sisters of Charity day care centre in one of the favelas (shanty town) on the outskirts of Salvador. These centres were set up through Mother Teresa’s mission to care for the poorest children in the community and provide them with food, shelter and love. The employee's role at the centre was to help with feeding, playing (using development activities as far as possible) and washing. Other employees have participated in career coaching and workshops in local schools and community centres.

Each quarter, Autodesk UK holds "All Hands" meetings, a meeting for all UK employees to celebrate successes and share business updates. Employees and managers have the opportunity to nominate a colleague for going "above and beyond" and the winning nominee receives public recognition and a gift in front of their colleagues. "Autobucks" is a spot recognition bonus award program. It provides managers with a convenient, easy to use means of recognising and rewarding employees that demonstrate above and beyond performance. The purpose of a spot recognition program is to reward employees “on the spot” in order to recognise an exceptional work product or behaviour.
