I don't understand all the negative sentiment on this board. Is Oracle that bad of a company to work for? I mean, gosh, you people sound like taking a job there is like working for the devil himself. People can't suck that that much there can they?... — read more
If the goal for every reorg is to improve this company, I see exactly the opposite happening. After each reorg it gets worse.
Load up on this stock and enjoy the ride. Worth $500-600 per share within the next twelve months.
They did it again! Another reorg! One day we are talking about the survey that identified too much change, and the next day our response is generate more change! I’m glad their listening.
Oracle has a gang culture and they kick people out of this sinking ship based on the needs of their group. No one is really working for Oracle's future, they are just waiting for their retirement comes someday. If you see this kind of group, don't... — read more
Oh wait just a wonderful dream I had last night. Now I have nothing to look forward to. Hate it when you wake back up and only then remember you're actually living in the nightmare.
Not only do employees know this, but others have long known that Oracle is a company that brings together unscrupulous climbers, people who are prone to lying and who are the source of a negative atmosphere throughout the company. What is more... — read more
This just never, ever gets old! https://gfycat.com/blackandwhitesmugdragon
Been at Oracle for 10+ years. Work in one of the GBU’s. Year after year I saw leadership set terrible examples, treat people like cr-p, turn people against one another and overall act like some of the lowest life forms I’ve ever seen. The last 90... — read more
We all know Oracle sucks but any advice on negotiating with an internal role change? When does that conversation come up?
someone asked revenge of being RIFed. No there is revenge, no need to do it. If I were not RIFed, my TC would be just 100k around per year. Now, my TC should be around 500k, around 1M in total for next couple of years. Thanks for being mean to me... — read more
Does this happen often? A guy who started about the same time as I did was recently laid off. That's not even a year with Oracle and he was shown the door. I'm not sure if it was him not doing a good enough job and suffering the consequences or if... — read more
Sr level management sent a memo out this week highlighting 7% CPI inflation. The main ask was for OCI Sales reps to leverage this and turn monthly customers into annual, saying prices will go up. Meanwhile no concern for anyone’s base/ote which... — read more
This is a master thread about Oracle layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
At the end of November, it has been a long established tradition at Oracle to lay people off as we start the second half of the fiscal year. What are the odds that it will happy again this year? Have a happy season of giving!
Been here for a decade plus. I’ve come to this point where I’m interviewing with other companies and I’m close…but in my current role, I just don’t care any more. I don’t care what my customers think, don’t care what the “senior” people on my team... — read more
I woke up in the middle of my slumber and figured it out. I figured out your odds with Oracle HR. Employee vs Management…you have absolutely no chance no matter what and the employee will always be wrong no matter what. Management could destroy... — read more
I was on call with mates from my unit. Things have been terrible financially for my group. I saw a person who had the same last name as a gent who is a director of sorts. Don’t really know that he does much, but this girl is his daughter and she’s... — read more
My team is stretched thin as it is. We lose one more person, we're screwed. How do I explain to a good-for-nothing manager who got there because he kissed the right a-s and has no idea what we do that work won't get done if one more person is laid... — read more
I’ve been on a few interviews the last few weeks. All great experiences. Few times I came across ex-Oracle people in mgmt. People I actually admire even aside from our short time. Their comments… “I never felt like Oracle was a career. You’re a... — read more
Fareed Zakaria covered the great resignation and strikes in America. Employers have to improve conditions, or people will walk. Attrition is rampart at Oracle. Will it get worse
Please stop your finance directors from bullying us lower level folks. Most of us are stressed and depressed bc of how your directors are treating us. They’re faking staying “busy” to keep their jobs while enjoy bullying us. Been here for 5 months... — read more
What is it about Oracle that seems to breed such a lemming mentality across the rank-and-file employees? I've always found it nauseating how quickly employees jump on the bandwagon around some new corporate buzzword or technology/term, and how... — read more
I’ve been interviewing with a number of big and small companies the last few weeks. I’m on my 4th interview with an Oracle competitor. One thing I noticed, you can be happy and laugh about work. I’ve laughed more with people from these companies than... — read more
How bad will it get?
With share price going up and up, must be golden handcuffs for many ... and management must be patting themselves on the back
This is just a candid personal opinion. Of course each of us have different experiences and I respect those. This is mine. Before Oracle : Way back in 1998, as a student, I used to look at computer training institutes in Chennai ( IIndia) and most... — read more
I had a stupid manager with an ego that was beyond, beyond. Impossible to even have a conversation with this guy. Every single thing I said was constantly being analyzed by his rat brain for any sign of anything that might be negative about him. ... — read more
As I didn’t do anything Oracle related today and went through few interviews, all I could do is laugh at the pathetic sad mess that runs my GBU. Yesterday some rat girl posts about sending out virtual birthday cards and global celebrations. She is... — read more
Anyone heard anything about the Vaccine mandates with regards to Oracle employees ?, seems South West Airlines Pilots are resisting it. Be interesting to see how Oracle handles this. Surprised we haven’t had anything from HR. It was asked in a town... — read more

There are lots of opportunities out there beyond the dumpster fires at Oracle. We all need to be looking to the future and what we would like for ourselves. For myself, I have created my own website and am looking at pushing that out there through... — read more
I swear on my mother, who is deceased. I got promoted about 6 years ago. From one level consulting to another. My incompetent rat manager submitted my promotion but it was based on my base and not my total comp with OT. It actually ended up I was... — read more
I'm one that had enough. There was no focus on the future, just trying to survive. Left it all behind. The question is not "why do you want to leave Oracle?" but "Why would you want to stay at Oracle?" Answer that truthfully. If you are reading... — read more
In a very short amount of time, it so easy to see why Oracle is hated by the majority of employees and losing hand over fist. I got a new role a while back. No more money. No raise. My rat manager didn’t even fight for any money. Obviously I did... — read more
Looks like directors and sr directors are searching for job. Not sure if they got fired.
Retooling complete. Larry, Safra and Cloud Wars all concur, Oracle is back in the lead!!
