Topics regarding layoffs at Oracle Corp.
For all those here who were predicting that ORCL would tumble to single digits, may I suggest roast crow with orange sauce, roasted potatoes and braised asparagus?
Several overlay OD groups in apps (Greenfield, Compete, C2C) received notice their On Target Earrings have been reduced by 17% next fiscal. Bonuses will be smaller for them next year. They are being rebranded to more of a business development... — read more
I don’t care about being good to my customers cause Oracle hasn’t been good to me in a very long time. I have a call with a customer in a few. If they start giving me attitude, it’s gonna be stopped. The slobs in my GBU’s mgmt would have us wipe... — read more
I'm surprised none of the regular named or unnamed posters mentioned this here today.
This company is no longer a place that attracts talented, skilled and dedicated people, but very average ones who are least interested in their work. Such people think they are something special just because they work at Oracle. I don’t know what... — read more
Is the extra effort rewarded by anything but more work? That's how it's been feeling for the last several years. What happened to proper bonuses, promotions, pay raises, etc? I'm also curious if this is a company-wide issue or am I just that unlucky... — read more
Oracle clearly has no future. At first I thought it was just problems in the group I was in, work going to India, people leaving, etc. And I thought that other parts of the company were still going well. Then, there was the lawsuit... — read more
So that's how I would briefly describe my working day at Oracle. I literally have to force myself to start working because I have never been more demoralized and tired. I thought it was just a phase, since I really like the job I do and I tried to... — read more
I know, I know- I've seen the posts. Believe me- I currently work for a ~similar~ co selling software and it is largely the same environment, based on the comments I've seen. That being said, I haven't seen much about where the GOOD parts to be... — read more
The redundancy payoffs of last year have paid off, half of those left have now resigned. Those weak enough to still be there and think their jobs are safe are not far from unemployment
HEAVILY weighting the attainment of seven arbitrary certifications, regardless of their efficacy, makes poor business sense. Reward desired behavior, if you will, but don’t punish. People are already walking, but perhaps that was the goal. Think... — read more
I was never as unhappy working at Oracle as I am right now. The company is changing every year and none of it is for the better. This used to be a job I enjoyed immensely but by now they managed to suck all the fun out of it. Nobody pays attention to... — read more
It’s all in this lawsuit filing, including a lot of commentary about the horrible, toxic environment that is OCI. It has now come to the horrible OCI executive team driving people to horrible deaths. http://andrewwatters.com/law/oracle/ — read more
It seems like the layoffs for the last few years are usually in March? Ax-man's post sounded like he really knew they would be in April this year. I am wondering if management was waiting for some things, maybe SCOTUS ruling? or big deals? If... — read more
Things have been deteriorating here for years, slowly but surely. I'm among those who were hoping to continue to grow their career here but I've been stuck in the same position for years while I see less knowledgeable and less productive people get... — read more
I have worked in 4 companies, but here in Oracle I can see Managers are too egoistic. There isn't any fair and free communication. I feel managers should join mainstream political party rather than working here. Anyways, People are getting... — read more
This is not a discussion of Google Cloud vs Oracle Cloud, because Google has been running their Oracle ERP in GCP and the new SAP is also in GCP. This is a discussion of SAP winning big Oracle ERP customers. To put this in perspective... — read more
The Google platform just got bigger and market power greater — the barriers to entry higher and the ability to compete lower. They stole Java and spent a decade litigating as only a monopolist can. This behavior is exactly why regulatory authorities... — read more
Supreme Court sides with Google in long-running copyright dispute with Oracle https://www.axios.com/google-wins-software-case-oracle-supreme-court-e4f3ec07-4295-40fc-a28b-a2e0dc6cab7d.html "The Supreme Court handed Google a major victory on... — read more
I have been with Oracle for about 6 years and while I have enjoyed working with some of the world's top technical talent , the same cannot be said for much of the Sales people I have worked with here. To start with, many of them are hired not on... — read more
Where is OCI for big deals? Your ECP Clay makes lot of buzz in linkedIn?
98% of people in CDC have already been laid off at May2019/Nov2019 and Oct2020. Now it's the turn of the last 2%. There should be few guys from CDC here. If any, maybe we can have discussions here.
I see so much animosity towards Oracle and I can't figure out why. It's a job like any other. There are layoffs but name one company of this size that doesn't have them. There are c-appy managers but do you really thing that's company-specific?... — read more
I’ve worked in a GBU for a while. C-ap mgmt. No promotions. No raises. No cost of living raises. Is this happening in other ones? The guy who runs them all is from my GBU and I think he could care less about humans than anyone I’ve ever seen. I know... — read more
https://ussanews.com/News1/2021/03/30/israels-project-nimbus-microsoft-looks-to-be-out-with-amazon-and-google-in-it-for-the-win/ Oracle has invested millions of USD in consultants and attempts to bribe the Israeli government officials. LE and also... — read more
Hired five months ago, laid off yesterday. Apparently, they didn't need somebody for that position after all. I wish I knew that before I turned another offer down to take this job, but I guess that would have been too much to ask for. I guess I... — read more
Ax-man posted that the big layoffs would be in April. Any rumors coming up?
Here is the ranking: Fastest-Growing Major Cloud Vendors: Google #1, Oracle #2, Microsoft and ServiceNow #3 Source: https://cloudwars.co/google-cloud/fastest-growing-major-cloud-vendors-google-oracle-and-more/
Oracle is a big ship, she doesn't care.
OCI rep getting screwed on the new consumption based comp plan. Basically every rep gets a “threshold” to surpass before getting paid a dime... Have done over and above number in new bookings but due to strategic nature of projects the ramp to... — read more
Heard Oracle's pay scale is beating FAANG pay scale and Oracle must be added to the FAANG brand. We all must use FAANGO to further represent the salary brand.
Many people from Amazon joined OCI. Does it mean that Oracle have beaten Amazon interms of pay. I now Amazon pays roughly $350k per engineer in terms of base + stock. Did Oracle pays that much? If not, how people are joining from Amazon... — read more
I got notice of being RIF's by Mar 31 (employment termination date). If you were on the list, you probably got told today as well. Don't worry, economy is picking up lot of opportunities outside!
I'm in cloud and I'd really like to leave Oracle behind me. I'd also like to go to a company that doesn't have the same issues as we do - most of all constant layoffs. I was considering joining a startup but nixed that idea quickly, which leaves the... — read more
Does this mean layoffs too ?
North America Apps - Major Accounts is disappearing in FY22. Heavy layoffs being planned for the sales teams - Riff in June.
See this article: https://www.barrons.com/articles/oracle-tumbles-as-shift-to-cloud-software-fails-to-spur-substantial-growth-51615478653 Weiss is particularly irritated by Oracle’s relatively low level of granular disclosure. “The reasons for... — read more
