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.

Is it going to be as bad as 2017 and 2016?
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
Is it going to be as bad as 2016?
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
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.
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
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
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
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?
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
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.
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
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
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
I left in 2013 and now I hear that Autodesk might be cutting staff again. True?
10% were let go, it was a horrible year
Mark my words, internal info
Do you think that we'll have a better year in 2014 (if compared with 2013) - things are getting worse
Digital design giant Autodesk laid off 7% of its workforce Thursday, sources tell Mashable. That totals around 500 employees — including a number of 3D developers and several product managers. Many of the layoffs were handled on a one-by-one basis... read more
ADSK will up to 100 jobs as we shifts focus from slower growth regions, like Southern Europe, to faster growth areas, CEO Carl Bass told analysts at his company's annual investor day Wednesday in San Francisco. The San Rafael-based maker of design... read more
