Autodesk employees are offered a generous benefits package including a six-week paid sabbatical every four years, paid time off between [skipwords]Christmas[/skipwords] Eve and New Year's Day, discounts on a variety of group insurance options and, of course, the option of bringing their dogs to work. About 5 percent of the company's nearly 7,000 employees take advantage of this benefit. According to Michael Oldenburg, Autodesk spokesman, "Having a pet also encourages employees to take breaks during the day that they may not take if they didn't have a pet."
