Having been through dying companies twice, I say you should never
believe anything they tell you. In dying companies, upper management
likes to control the rate of employee departures, so they will never
tell you how bad things are, and will lie to keep you around as long as
they need you, and after that...

Sounds like it's time to find another job. Dying companies are no fun.
I'm at a furiously growing company now and it's just a great place to
work. Take advantage of the hot job market while it lasts.
