My friend in academia is doing a really cool research project on autistic adults job satisfaction. You get $15 CDN for your time.

https://survey.psyc.unb.ca/ASD-Employment-Consent.aspx

I have to say that I've filled out many surveys looking for responses from autistic adults. This was definitely one of my favorites because it captured a lot of my experiences within my past workplaces and the current one.

I'm curious to know what has helped you thrive in the workplace and what has been a barrier (I can't wait for the survey results so I hope some of you share your wisdom).

Very best!

I did the survey.

I didn't bother with the $15 thing though, as I don't mind doing surveys for free.

Do you have to be currently employed or could you have just worked in the past :?:

You must be, said the Cat, or you wouldn't have come here.

I only answered a couple questions which were my age & if was currently employed. I answered No & it then asked if I had been employed in the past. I answered Yes & the survey was over.

I can't remember how I got in. My business card says "Retired" in quotes. Anyway, it seemed to assume that people were working in places big enough for a HR dept. There's a free-form section at the end where you can write at will.
