Topics regarding layoffs at Oracle Corp.
I also just got informal confirmation of an October ECA reorg. Apparently this is all because of the upcoming departure of HD to SFDC or MSFT. RG then feels he can clean house and have one of his IBM or HP yes-men run this group. It means lots of... read more

Merger/acquisition with Accenture? The purchase of AMD? What was supposed to fill the other 90 minutes of LE's awkward "cloud announcement"?
Recently I've read that the next Solaris was pushed for the next year, but the way things are going currently, the only things that are happening are cuts in both development and maintenance teams and resources. Anybody else thinks that Oracle will... read more
No more SPARC systems showcase in OOW. More Solaris/SPARC RIFs after OOW as everything goes sustaining.
Oracle Cloud Revenue = Free Cloud credits to On-premise DB/App customers, which is called organic growth to cloud.
My manager said Larry has told ES to eliminate most if not all remaining Sun engineering. A direct order from LE, good luck to you all. The goal is to rid Oracle of most of its direct hardware sales and focus on cloud. Services is next, Oracle plans... read more
Does anyone know about Cloud Architects/SE layoffs after oow ? My manager says a re-org being planned
I sent my paper work in last week, how long before Oracle pays out the final severance pay out? Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.
Looks liked the reorg for the ECAs under HD is lined up for execution. Consolidation of the different management chains for ECAs and removal of redundant management is in play. As far as the ECAs, if you have not been flagged as being ECAL compliant... read more
The market is getting wise to Oracle. Analysts expected additional acquisitions and investment in infrastructure with strong cloud growth expectations from the September 14th earnings call. Instead they got "organic growth" and a "machine learning... read more
Is LE getting collateral calls from his lenders now that oracle stock is tanking. Getting desperate LE? Sure looks like it!
https://blogs.oracle.com/java-platform-group/faster-and-easier-use-and-redistribution-of-java-se "We will initially offer Linux x64 binaries and add macOS and Windows later." No mention of Solaris or sparc at all. No Java 9 for Solaris users? REALLY... read more
Internal rumors now saying ZFSSA is going the way of the FS1. Will Larry's self-driving cloud save us?
No change this past week, total for FY18 remains 7,000; total since 6/1/2016 remains 17,000. With analysts call over and downward guidance expect more layoffs as per the other threads. Please report here as they happen. Good luck all!
I cannot believe how many different engineering and non engineering jobs there are out in major areas. I'd say if you're wanting and able too, leave Oracle I was loyal until E Screwjob S gave the Oracle look to your right and cough as we castrate... read more

Over the past month, several of us have been able to piece together some of what is transpiring, despite the fact that our workgroup is not based in the US. Some of this remains rumour, but much is already confirmed and underway. Oracle is, as... read more
I tried to put a positive post on Oracle for the last two weeks and it is removed...Hummmm
From the article: Therefore, if you believe that Oracle's cloud services will keep growing and its margins will keep expanding, it could be a great time to start a new position in this evolving tech giant... read more
New SPARC T8 and M8 systems announced by Mr Screven today. SPARC is far from dead. https://www.oracle.com/servers/sparc/index.html
The idea that the only reason we needed to lower cloud forecast is that our data centers can't keep up with demand is complete fiction. Yes, it is true that our investment in data centers has been anemic and that has hurt our top line... read more
Just when you thought you were safe, there are more cuts being planned for ES's org for early next year. Target groups include a significant hit for the linux groups and the rest of zfssa. It's not clear whether the pillar org will get a trim.
Hi all, As the new company is currently working on transferring H-1B for me and they need last 2 paystubs, I am posting for wondering if someone here might know how to get that when being under WARN. Any contact information regarding this matter... read more
Management is the greatest inefficiency in any organisation. Six years ago Gary Hamel wrote a hugely influential piece called First, Let’s Fire All the Managers. It outlined the huge inefficiency tax that management layers over an organisation: As an... read more
Which means the street isn't buying into our story of growth and no-touch databases. Probably means Papa Mark and Mama Safra are going to take some of us out to the back shed and tan our hides with a good RIFfin'!
So just got told to accept a new comp plan where the target allocation changed downward by 20%. Not that I should complain...but wth?

There were bizarre statements in the earnings call and major red flags in the financial statements. Their announcement that executives were now going to be compensated primarily on cloud revenue is very strange, considering that SC and MH already... read more
JF's org: 20+ year Legacy Sun - here's my experience: Day of layoff - notified via phone by manager (I had a scheduled vacation day) This is your official last day. Benefits end that day, no 30 or 60 day period to find another job. Fed-ex package... read more
I think in the majority of cases no one could reasonably expect that their manager is going to give them any heads up. In the vast majority of cases the manager is not going to want to deal with that. They will want it short and sweet at the end and... read more
Oracle's new autonomous database will no longer need humans to tune, patch or administrate the database because it now has machine learning. All you have to do it click a button and upload your data and your are done. Wow. Really? Lets look at... read more
