I've been gone for a number of years now and I'm just curious if anything is left of either organization. They had their share of dead wood, but they also had some great people too.
I heard restructuring is possibly taking place on the GSCO SalesHelp team. Any insights as to whether this means layoffs or not?
This is Oracle. Layoffs are happening on a daily basis. Either accept that or move on.
With that all hands today with new leadership, anyone sees a potential reorg ?
Any news? Heard there is a reorg.
Oracle burns through sales people and treats them like expendables, and everyone knows that. So pay attention to which business units Oracle sends its leads to and that is where Oracle wants growth. The H/W divisions currently get zero leads. Even... — read more

Anyone hear what their org is doing?
Time for a change. Good ole boys club has to go.
It seems like leadership is being moved around and different teams are getting created to get in the way of the sales/CSM team.

Like it, or hate it, vote on this post to show if you are here? All these recent threads are hardly commented upon.
Oracle seems to have given up on this product, with more layoffs on the way.
