Finished with Autodesk

Friday, May 19th was my last day at Autodesk. It was a good two years, and I learned a lot. Thanks, Autodesk for the experience!

About Autodesk

I found this information about Autodesk today.

Autodesk is the fourth largest software development company in the United States, with well in excess of 50 distinct products. We are one of the fastest growing Fortune 500 Companies with revenues in excess of $1 billion.

I didn’t know that, very interesting.

Autodesk = Great.

I work at Autodesk as an intern. Recently, they’ve acquired Alias, and they appear to be doing very well as a company.

One of the “intern appreciation” gifts I just received is a NFR (Not for Resale) version of Autodesk Inventor 10 Professional , valued at over $5,195.00 (version listed is R10, I received R10 Pro).

Very nice. Took some pictures.

Edit 10/17/2005:
Yikes, check out those preferred system requirements:

Preferred System Requirements:
Includes Autodesk Vault client
Large assembly design (more than 1,000 parts)

  • Intel Pentium 4, Intel Xeon, or AMD Opteron™ processor, 3 GHz or higher
  • Microsoft® Windows® XP (Professional or Home Edition, SP1 or SP2) or Windows 2000 (SP4)
  • 3 GB or more RAM
  • 3.5 GB free disk space
  • 128 MB or more OpenGL-capable workstation class graphics card

I gotta tell ya, the test systems we use at Autodesk for QA don’t even have “3 GB or more RAM”, that’s insane.

Autodesk job (cont’d)

Looks like the job at Autodesk is going to work out. I received the following e-mail on Wednesday, May 19th:


OK, I finally have all the approvals and can make the following
non-binding (informal) offer:

Start Date: May 26
Salary: $18/hour

Please let me know if you have any concerns with this offer. I
apologize for the delays in the process.

We are putting together the formal offer letter, which (by Autodesk
policy) is contingent on a background check which takes several days.
It will probably be easiest if we just plan to have you review & sign
the offer when you come in on May 26. I will send you a status update
sometime later in the process.


I am filling out the employment application/background check right now, so hopefully they don’t find out about my time in jail or drug habits. *cough*
