I got offers from all big cloud players Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and Oracle. Not sure which is best for me? Can you tell me why Oracle is best?
The major RIFs are finished. Remaining employees will be working maintenance or transition to the Cloud. There may be some minor reshuffling in Sales, but the worse is over. Anything else you hear from this board is pure fabrication. Notice how they... read more

Execution success? Thoughts?
Will the long awaited BIG RIF be on Thursday, May 31? I have a bunch of Oracle stock I've been holding on to and the stock price should go through the roof.
