Topics regarding layoffs at Oracle Corp.
Oracle is a joke in IaaS cloud because: 1) Never before have C-level executives made so much money by making such bad decisions and having zero vision. LE literally laughed at cloud in 2009 and instead decided that Oracle would become a hardware... read more
Let's see what is new/next???
I am one of the 1K+ engineers that were laid off on September. With two months of actively looking, most of my colleagues I know landed a job with better pay. My own compensation gets a 50% increase compared to Oracle with multiple offers. Layoff... read more
More than 60% of the profitable ZFSSA engineering team were fired in a RIF and the decline is gaining momentum. Our VP (OM) + chief of staff have moved elsewhere. Managers are running for the door. The senior engineers are now jumping ship... read more
A small layoff in EBS this week. Total for fiscal year remakes at 7,150; total since 6/1/2016 is 17,150. More layoffs coming. Keep looking for jobs with companies with a better future. Good luck all!
MH thinks it’s sales’ fault so he’s giving SaaS away for free in his big enterprise deals...problem is little to zero uptake. Guess it’s not the sales people’s fault! The clients don’t choose oracle’scloud Products (any of them) over the competition... read more
At a presentation to a large audience at the Gartner Symposium last week in Orlando, DP, a Vice President and Cloud Fellow at Gartner Group, asked the audience for a show of hands on which Cloud they were using. When he asked "AWS?", the vast... read more
Anyone knows a good employment attorney in the bay area who focuses on discrimination, retaliation or harassment at work? I know I can google it, but I like to get some feedback. Thank you
My termination date will be October 31 (Tuesday), does any one have past experience with receiving papers from Oracle following 6--day WARN period? How long does it take? Do they send it out on 31st via Fedx and so available to me by the next day or... read more
Is it true that EBS support engineers are being asked to move or volunteer to Fusion Support or else ?
I got RIFed with 30 days WARNing. I've found another job within Oracle, but I'm not sure I'll get the actual offer until after my last day. If that happens, am I an outside hire? And if so, can I accept the package? Has anyone experience this?
I've been on a verge of leaving Oracle for a while now. Still don't have a replacement job lined up, but that's mainly because I barely have time for anything but work. I don't doubt I'll be able to find a job once I really get into the search. I was... read more
These people s---. They log SRs as 24x7 while looking for answers on questions. These people are not qualified yet alone should be working in Oracle. They also want us support people to do their job for them. More likely fudging their resumes so they... read more
I was saddened to see few good people go yesterday, employees are nothing but numbers to management. It does not matter how hard you work, it does not matter how needed you are to Oracle. If you do not belong to the management's circle of friends... read more
Oracle is in panic mode. They are whacking employees right & left with no thought of what their job was, leaving the rest scrambling to figure out how to cover the rif'ed employees old jobs. Nobody is safe. Totally insane.
I got laidoff back In 9/1 with other hundreds. This is my first time back to this site . Seeing the same email gave me dejavu. Everyone is lost looking for any news to hold to. My advice to stay till they lay you off BUT act like you already got laid... read more
Will a layoff tomorrow happen? What groups, locations? Has a conference call with ES been scheduled?
NAA CSM SaaS witnessed the departure of SM. The GVP of OMC, CB, will be leading the charge. Anyone aware of upcoming changes or what to expect from CB style and approach?
When Oracle sends out the severance and vacation pay, does it deduct Fed, state income taxe as usual? Or do they not deduct the taxes, so we have to pay the taxes later when we file our returns?
Well, we’ll, well, among all the unannounced layoffs, Oracle still hires new people, but to get hired you must have been the VPs chief of staff - yes in DC, so that you can be the vp of government affairs and cozy up to the White House and Congress
We have software in our SaaS fleet that is over 5 years behind on security patches. No one in PDIT cares about security at all. I've actually been laughed at when I said we should be worried about our customer's data. How on Earth can we help other... read more

ES to take a dump on more employees.
Lots of bold, in not necessarily accurate statements from Oracle management this week, but fortunately no major layoffs. Total stays at 7,150 for the fiscal year and 17,150 since 6/1/2016. Expectations of more layoffs to come in coming weeks. Be well... read more

What would be best for the oracle brand would be swift and immediate restructuring cuts vs the sloth-like endless cuts to bleed out. Just restructure and get on with it oracle leadership! You look “cruel at worst” and “uncertain at best” under the... read more
"Oracle cloud can’t even muster a Top 10 place in Gartner’s list of leading IaaS providers. For IaaS, Gartner pegs AWS cloud revenues at more than 80X times Oracle’s. Even in the PaaS market, where Oracle has seen more growth—bumping up from 1.1... read more
Oracle has made a very simple mistake, possibly by 4 to 5 years. Everything cloud - now, now, now... Well Amazon, Microsoft, Google, which happen to be worth more than Oracle have made a greater investment in cloud. Oh and happen to have on premise... read more

You have to feel sorry for LE, telling tales and marginalizing competitors used to be easy, but no more. Not only did AWS push back on his nonsense, nor Splunk is giving him a lesson on how not to lose boat races - with better, ie, non oracle BI... read more
Past week resignations at Seattle has gone up! Most leaving to Azure or Google.

Oracle management cannot keep talent on board, after the Sun B.S. many Bare Metal Engineers have friends and family that were impacted. Since Oracle does not care about loyal employees, most are bailing. Oracle has pounded to many nails in to many... read more
