As long as this Company has existed, they have the highest lay off rates.
They lay employees off just about every year, several times a year. I've had many friends employed there and they are big on layoffs.

They do big lay offs all the time so they can hire people out of India on flimsy visas and pay them less then people currently living in CA. They lie to employees and treat them like doo doo. I can't believe I worked for those creeps. The best part was when both my bosses got the boot too. I wish Autodesk would move out of Marin. They stink!!!!!!!

And they've been telling their employees for the last two weeks that "layoffs would only be a last resort." Boy, do I ever feel used. How's that for honesty?
