Bass: All Is Good at Autodesk

No worries bro: "To be clear, the restructuring announced today is not related to anything we are seeing in the macro-economic environment. We ended fiscal 2016 on a high note with very strong fourth-quarter billings growth and continued demand for... read more

Internal communication on Layoffs

Really sorry for everybody affected. Internal communication so far is poor and full of corporate BS. Just watched a video of a senior VP talking for 10 minutes without saying anything. If anybody has more information about which teams and products... read more

10% cut announced today - 900 folks out

Major job cuts, RIFs, layoffs are the norm now – everyone is used to it. You could be the best employee, but if you get caught in the politics, watch your back – you will be gone in no time. The politics at Autodesk are suffocating, it’s really bad... read more
