Topics regarding layoffs at Oracle Corp.
some strong rumors are that JD (EMEA) is moving to another position, together with some other (MS already moved, more to move in the next months). rats in the know leaving the sinking ship just before final collapse. a clear writing on the wall.
Just saw an ad on the ABC network for AWS directed at small biz. Why doesn’t Oracle advertise their cloud? Could it be their total disdain for any biz that is not Fortune 500? Their lack of goodwill to their customers and their horrid reputation for... read more
The lack of direction is killing us. Every month it seem like the goals completely change and we have no idea where the ship is supposed to be headed. There is no comprehensive vision for our company or products. Just a bunch of random, often... read more
With the shrinking of the on prem workforce what is to become of the mountain of technical debt that Oracle has amassed through the crazy acquisition spree? As more of us get invited to the door it would seem that Oracle will reach a tipping point... read more
Who’s the big, big Turkey this year? Well let’s see. Who has no HW revenues, steeply declining SW revenues, no cloud, and steeply declining support revenues. It’s oracle! LE is the Big Turkey!
Harvard Business Review has published its list of the best CEOs: SFDC’s MB #12; LE/MH/SC nowhere to be found. No surprises here, just a confirmation that oracle is a poorly managed company run by bad executIves.
Here it goes MH...your old company--HP/ CEO Meg.W missed her numbers and is stepping down-- http://money.cnn.com/2017/11/21/technology/meg-whitman-steps-down/index.html have at least her balls..and do the same....
At $48 per share oracle has to be the most overvalued company on the stock market. I mean, it has no sustainable revenues from any products: no HW, no on-prem products, no cloud products, yes a tail of declining support revenues from old products... read more
Taking a look at the macro trends and the amount budgeted for employee severance packages we can clearly see that Oracle is about half way to their "Restructuring goal" put in place by executives last year. The Only way to achieve that goal... read more

Ironic, isn’t it, LE could have achieved immortality, a la Jobs, had he had the good judgement to die 10 years ago, now he’ll go down in history as a guy who got lucky and then overstayed his welcome and ran the company into the ground. This... read more

The next wave to hit will be first quarter 2018.
Yet again shareholders have voted against the exec comp plan. This is now, of course, a regular and comical feature of the oracle shareholders meetings. Management proposes outrageous and unjustified pay plans for itself, shareholders rejects them... read more
For the ex-Sun folks with a Labor Day WARN and Halloween termination, when will the severance payment hit our mailboxes? While we are out of town for Thanksgiving? Can we get direct deposit? From the packet, "Your severance payment will occur only... read more
A small layoff in India this week, fewer than 10 people? The total for FY18 remains at 7,150 laid off; 17,150 laid off since 6/1/2016. Be well all and keep looking for better opportunities. Just a question of time till your number at oracle is up.
Got laid off awhile ago and still have friends in the GBU's - good people. Any word on those in the UGBU or FSGBU, esp in the States and Europe?
Anybody dial in?
No major layoff activity reported this past week. Total for FY18 stays at 7,150; total since 6-1-16 remains at 17,150. Note: almost $500m of restricting reserve left for FY18 layoffs - that’s a lot of people. Keep looking !
Just read an interesting article on why customers are reluctant to move to the "Oracle Cloud." Sadly the pivot to the cloud will impact every employee at Oracle. Starting with sales first. You wont be able to survive the train wreck. What used to... read more

Just hearing the rumors, but someone may know.
Take a look at the rumors posted here on the "FY19 Oracle Zero" in field sales and compare it to the data reported in Oracle's September 18th 2017 10q. http://d18rn0p25nwr6d.cloudfront.net/CIK-0001341439/6aae1efb-e6ff-44cb-9563-94b1d5ebd7e1.pdf On... read more
ECAs don’t use it unless to show internally. It’s a complete waste of time.
I blew a fuse traveling and started booking follow up meetings at the customer sites near resort areas. I have been literally flying to both coasts for weeks and spending more time in the airports than at meetings when it hit me... Why am I doing... read more
Oracle has built its empire on data. Times have changed and so has the amount of data, the velocity of change, and the amount of unstructured data. As Oracle "pivots" to the cloud with "non existent" infrastructure rife with vendor lock in and price... read more
