Is Andrew Anagnost well-aligned to support Autodesk's key priorities? Or is he Agnostic as his name suggests?
Hey Carl!! Only 250 layoffs!!
Didn't you want more? Like 5-15%? Anagnost is fairly agnostic about his decision - "we’re focused on ensuring that our resources remain well-aligned to support our key priorities for the coming year". Usual b.s. excuses.
Autodesk Cuts About 250 Jobs, Joining Flurry of Tech Layoffs
The cuts amount to less than 2% of Autodesk’s global workforce, a company spokeswoman said. They are the product of aligning resources to pursue key priorities this fiscal year and not a result of over-hiring or cost-cutting, and Autodesk continues... — read more
Does anyone know what groups are impacted?
Plans for the new FY?
Any idea if anything is coming down in Feb?
What are the layoff plans for 2023?
Will there be FAANG-style layoffs? Autodesk fell 34% in last year, but their comp is comparably very low to average compared to FAANG. So expenses are more manageable.
Autodesk just laid off their entire Client Services teams in Portland and Denver. San Rafael is next. All Client Services support will be done from Bangalore.
What are the 2022 Layoff Plans?
Are they laying off more M&E? Butchering more products?
What about the 2021 Layoff Plans?
A lot of execs departed in 2020. What about 2021? More layoffs?
What about the 2020 Layoff Plans?
Last quarter is approaching.
Autodesk 2019 layoffs
Any layoffs planned for this year?
Not sure why there was a very light media coverage?
Here it goes anyway... https://www.sfchronicle.com/business/article/Autodesk-lays-off-108-employees-in-San-Francisco-12547181.php Dozens of San Francisco employees of Autodesk were laid off Friday, in line with the company’s previously announced... — read more
Something smells wrong here
If Auotodesk is laying off after "5% growth" it doesn't bode well does it? Or Is that 5% number just B.S.? I don't understand why any company would lay so many off while growing at 5%. Doesn't add up, something smells wrong here.
Autodesk to lay off 1,150 as company restructures
Autodesk announces 925 layoffs — 10% of its workforce — as part of restructuring plan
Design-focused software firm Autodesk has announced a “restructuring plan” as the company looks to expedite its transition to the cloud and a “subscription-based business model.” As with many such “restructurings,” this means that Autodesk is laying... — read more
It's January... layoff season. The axe has already fallen quietly. Keep reading the news and have a plan B.
What are the plans for 2017 layoffs at Autodesk?
Is it going to be as bad as 2016?
Part of an Autodesk Acquisition...? Get your CV up to date and go looking for something else.
Autodesk seem to acquire companies on a regular basis, tell everyone everything is as normal and there will only be back office changes. DO NOT BELIEVE A WORD OUT OF THEIR LYING MOUTHS. They are slowly but surely systematically destroying the company... — read more
I would not bet on M&E....
Shanghai 3ds max team: all gone now. FBX in Singapore: all gone now. 3ds Max new render engine, ART: the sweden team is all gone now.
Departure Date 4/10/2016 - Counts: San Francisco 71, San Rafael 48
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
New brighter door opens
I'm also part of the laid off group, after 26 years of service as a software developer there. I agree that things seem a bit messed up. I hope things work out for Autodesk, given all my coworkers and friends that are still left there... some very... — read more
So which products are affected by this?
I wonder which products are affected - are those 900+ people across all segments of the company, or are they trimming down one area in particular?
They cut 20% of our development staff.
What's worse, they just cut out entire products with their staff, thereby losing some of our best/longest-serving developers rather than taking the opportunity to be selective in who we kept. Our office's senior management had less than 12 hours... — read more
Autodesk is starting to look more and more like Yahoo.
The lunatics really have taken over the asylum. Carl Bass is doubling down on a commercially unproven product (Fusion) and pulling resources from all over the company to prop it up. This company is starting to look more and more like Yahoo.
I was part of the 'laid off group'...
15+ years of loyal service in product development groups. Honest severance package, but no real effort to keep you around, besides the "we encourage you to apply on open positions". The irony is that about a week ago, I was informed by another... — read more
After Carol for some reason brought Bass back after he nearly destroyed Redspark
This has been the norm since Bass took over. When I was there 5 years ago we all knew there was a re-org every 12 a 18 months with layoffs becoming the norm. Prior to Bass taking the helm when we went through the dot com bust they executive team took... — 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
2015 Layoffs at Autodesk
I left in 2013 and now I hear that Autodesk might be cutting staff again. True?
2012 was bad for us
10% were let go, it was a horrible year
July 2014 = Bloodbath
Mark my words, internal info
2014 Layoffs at Autodesk
Do you think that we'll have a better year in 2014 (if compared with 2013) - things are getting worse
