The purpose of surveys

It's a joke that they even send these surveys - they don't care, nor do they listen about concerns or criticism. At this point, they're trying to drive people out before they end up axing them anyways. There should be power in numbers, with everyone... —  read more

Shocking news, any idea

n a question-and-answer session during Oracle's last quarterly earnings webcast, Ellison noted that Oracle can save cloud users money and offer a better product than Amazon's AWS. He added: "We expect next quarter, we'll be announcing some brands and... —  read more

Unclear pattern

It is totally unclear to me how Oracle decides who will be cut. What is the criterion? It seems that there are no rules because I know some excellent employees who got cut, but also some who really did not add any value. What interests me even more... —  read more

Q1 Numbers are out

O did much better than many here predicted. I recall that some here claimed to have "insider information" that Q1 would be a bloodbath and that a mass across the board layoff would follow. Either their sources were unreliable, or they were fibbing.
