I see comments about layoffs, is this layoff above certain designation or they just need a headcount cut.
I'm rather new to Oracle and I'm not really sure how layoffs are done here. Is everybody notified on the same day or does it spill over into the following day or two? I really, really need this job right now, so not being sure is taking its toll on... read more

Looks like CD on apps side is gonna get some of RG's cloud stuff with RG becoming the keeper of the on premise sales folks. Makes sense he came from tech end anyway.
I got offers from all big cloud players Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Oracle. Not sure which is best for me? Can you tell me why Oracle is best?
I know these lists are a dime a zone, but this one really hit home for me once I checked off number 6 (They ask you to train a new hire.) I guess I should be much more worried about the end of the month than I was so far... read more

Will the long awaited BIG RIF be on Thursday, May 31? I have a bunch of Oracle stock I've been holding on to and the stock price should go through the roof.

Execution success? Thoughts?
In all the negativity, here is somebody who believes that Oracle is actually on the way to nirvana (his words, not mine.) If you were to believe the financial analysts, Oracle is on a road to nowhere. That’s typical of the short-term thinking that... read more
At the end of every year, Oracle should open a secret balloting process for all its executives. For each executive, let his/her ALL direct and indirect reports to vote YES (he/she can stay) or NO (he/she should be fired). After the voting is over... read more
Just coincidence or there is a correlation?
