Don’t spend a lot of money this Christmas!

The new layoff is scheduled for January when you return. Business model will change, sales organization will go through restructuring and ECAs will be cut. Happy holidays!! This is not a fake news. Just wait and watch.

Continued failure

Failing oracle, unable to keep up with competition in the cloud had to make yet another expensive acquisition, this time of Aconex. All of which raises a simple question: why does oracle have a huge and hugely expensive Development group and how... read more

New oracle or strategy on the layoff

Did you folks notice the new oracle strategy? Yeah, they’re posting here, pretending to be employees/ former employees and suggesting how the rest of us should behave. Be nice to oracle, don’t criticize - it’s a small world and the arm of oracle is... read more

Great place to work

All people you that complain about Oracle. Shame on you. You need to support the company as it grows in the cloud space. Do the needful.

I left Oracle

I had a great run at Oracle but have now left the company. While I am disappointed to have left I won't bad mouth the company as this is such a small industry and word gets around.

This has to be the stupidest strategy....

Companies can also run Oracle database on AWS, but earlier this year, Oracle changed its licensing in such a way that it essentially doubled the cost of running and Oracle database on AWS cloud. The idea was clear: Oracle wants to make it cheaper for... read more

Share price below $48

I just want to get your feedback about Microsoft. Does Microsoft hire Oracle people?? I'm a former Oracle sales consultant. I have tried for a couple of years to get an interview with Microsoft. I'm very qualified for these positions. Unfortunately... read more

ECA Layoff

Senior exec departures

Are there any senior execs left at oracle? Seem like there are more departures every week. Soon it will be the three stooges, some A-kissers and the new college kids, and that will be it. Nobody with any knowledge and experience and Brian’s left.

Oracle Green Card process

Any idea when Oracle will resume the Green Card process. I was told six months from September, the time of Solaris layoffs. It should resume on March. Any news on the status and if it still the same?

Demoralizing employees is the goal

I've often wondered if demoralizing employees is the goal. Demoralized employees are more likely to leave so it lowers layoff costs. It doesn't seem to matter that demoralized employees are unproductive so they cost more money than layoffs. Oracle... read more

Looks like there were layoffs in EMEA this past week, some uncertainty around the numbers. I will call it 25. That brings the total number for FY18 to 7,275, and since 6/1/2106 to 17,275. Lots of restricting reserve $ left for FY18. Happy holidays... read more

SC and the Mouse

On the one hand I can’t believe SC will not have the opportunity to run another company into the ground; on the other there is something deeply satisfying about the image of SC and Mickey Mouse, maybe because both are such a joke.

Where to work?

I graduate year but have offers from Uber, Twitter and Oracle. I’ve felt inspired when I see Larry Ellison but people say bad things about him here. Why you bad?

Anyone hiring in the Denver area?

I just found out about a cloud development person laid off in August in the Denver area. They are having a difficult time finding work. Maybe an IT-type job that would use oracle tools would work? They have jdev, java, ADF experience. Anyone?
