Back in 2012, Mark Hurd spearheaded a corporate restructuring program to reduce the number of Oracle account contacts. In the past, customers had to deal with one sales rep for each of Oracle’s pillars: database, middleware, applications, engineered... — read more

What's your guess on how many employees the company will have before the end of the year? How about the overall headcount? And headcount at Redwood City?
No major layoffs this past week, but looks like last week’s layoff was closer to a 1,000 than the 500 reported Therefore revising the total. Total number of people laid off since 6/1/2016 is therefore 26,276. Keep looking folks, best of luck!
Most of the cuts are in the Bay Area: WeWork Layoffs (2,000) 23andMe cut 16% or 100 people Quora reduced an undisclosed number Mozilla cut 70 people this month Playful Studios big cut staff just this week Also cutting: Zume... — read more
Billions and probably tens of billions squandered already on a late arriving, over budget, weak also-ran cloud infrastructure — buggy and on leased data centers not even owned by Oracle. Customer enthusiasm is too low to measure. Zero management... — read more
The Ax-Man here, updating you folks with latest information. Next week (week of Jan 27) there will be major and numerous high-level meetings happening at Oracle HQ in Redwood Shores. Execs from all several major business units and top... — read more
Deleted a positive post on Oracle. WTF is wrong with you people here.
Looks like about 500 people were laid off late last week, including BD and cloud success managers, etc. That brings the total since 6/1/2016 to 25,776. It never ends! Keep looking aggressively if you don’t want to be next!
Notice that the TV ads for Netsuite are all "Netsuite" and the word Oracle only gets on screen small at end. Are they spinning off Netsuite? Whatva lolz. LE sells it to Oracle, makes 4.5 billion, then sells it to keep stock up? Plus he... — read more

What we are witnessing today at Oracle is a direct result of nearly a decade of tenure for MH in his leadership role. LE has been out of touch with his company as he gave full trust and control to MH and SC. Both of them focused on financial... — read more
Checked Aria: LE had 47013 on Friday, today: 46683 SF had 89612 on Friday, today: 89459 Granted, some left voluntarily. And no, I'm not from Oracle HR you dumb****!
Is it possible that many of these very well written posts telling us why everyone should leave Oracle ASAP possibly be written by someone in Oracle Human Resources so as to get as many of us to quit on our own and thereby avoid the bad PR (both... — read more
After getting back from the Holiday break and looking at mid-quarter numbers and run-rate being nowhere NEAR projections, Oracle leadership was in a state of shock. Previous internal management plans to reduce headcount and optimize the size of... — read more
Another dumb idea from above. It's NOT the software. It can't be. If that's the problem, then there is nothing that can be done. So we'll hire a new Chief Marketing Officer. We just aren't selling it right, yeah, yeah, that's the... — read more
no media coverage on this one. i think at this point nobody cares about job cuts here, it's so frequent - it's almost a normal order of business
My team got hit bad. Anybody in consulting labeled OCI is gone. And leaves regular consultants who are useless here. I know US, Canada in a similar boat. OCI is underperforming revenue wise. Whackings ain’t gonna fix it - leadership will.
not sure how that works without login, but wanted to see if anyone finds it any useful...
If you look in the mirror and say SAFRA SAFRA SAFRA she will actually appear behind you and VIOLENTLY RIF YOU WITH HER SPREADSHEET REDUCTION! Stay safe people. Pray to whatever you believe in. Keep your head down and never, ever, look at the... — read more
ORCL passed its 50 and 200 days moving average, which means technically it gives a BUY signal.
Do yourself a favor. Go to your family or a mirror and decide on one of the other for this year. 1) either I am leaving Oracle 2) I am staying for better or worse. That is it. either way, you are not making a wrong decision. the worst if... — read more
I was let go today. I'll spare you details, it follow the cookie cutter formula described on this site over and over again. There was more than a dozen people axed today, not in mgmt and I do not have an exact number.
It seems that OCI is gonna get hit, CX sales were hit today. Does anyone know of SC’s views on the business development (BD/BDC) and Oracle Digital (OD) orgs and if they’re safe or not?
Not sure how many... But was told I have until end of month to find new job internally or will be terminated.
Business is disastrous, morale below minimums. A move to a much smaller office in Madrid will be leveraged to execute a big RIF. Stay tuned.
Not much info available right now... Which could be considered both good and bad news...
Turns out the rumors are true. Oracle is implementing a cost-cutting travel ban. No customer facing travel. No overnight travel. For customer facing activity, they want to send the least amount of people possible so no more 8 people showing up for a... — read more
No major layoffs this past week. Total since 6/1/2016 remains 25,276. More cost cuts, ie layoffs, coming down the pike - keep looking aggressively to get out. not a good trajectory.
This post has 16 up-votes, can't be that wrong.... I have deep insight into what is happening with OCI from a business standpoint. And I can tell you that it is not only the largest s— of dollars in the company, but OCI is running at an EXTREME... — read more

Has oracle, finally, reached the point of the death spiral where cost cuts lead to declining revenues, lead to more cost cuts, which lead to further revenue declines .... as Infinitum until it implodes on itself? The signs aren’t good ...
Not a single sign of Dumperman or his alter ego trolls in more than a week. Information of verifiable quality is starting to be posted here again. Posts are not having to be pruned by the moderators. Oracle HR is no longer posting here... — read more

My extended team has meeting this afternoon. It was called on the fly. No details why.
Sales so far this quarter have been dramatically down. This is another impetus for the dramatic cutting of budgets and hiring freeze. The current run rate of sales and pipeline is way behind projections as the company goes into the second half of... — read more
Many departments and orgs across Oracle were mandated just before the Christmas break to “give back” significant portions of their 2H 2020 budgets. Translation: cut drastically and cut rapidly. Some departments’ expenses are being cut up to 50%... — read more
