Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

How many jobs are we expected to do?

They keep cutting people and transferring their workload to those of us who are left. We are already doing the work of two-three people each, and now it looks like they plan to lay off even more people? What do they think we are, robots? That they can just keep piling on and we'll keep doing it? Are you kidding me with this c-ap?

Management understands that staff are being asked to “lean in” during this difficult period.

We are not insensitive and hope we can all strive together so Oracle will emerge stronger and achieve a better work-life balance for our employees.

Please go back to your chains and oars. The execs would like to go water-skiing this afternoon.

With high unemployment we are now going into a period where employers can do anything they want. Jobs will be hard to find and the scum at the top knows it. They will take advantage to the extreme.

Probably as many as they think they can get away with, once it starts to affect your work they will get rid of you too. There are plenty of areas in operations with no cover that rely on favours by already overworked people in other depts. crazy way to run a company

People like you, who complain, are the ones that surf the internet all the time. Spend too many hours BSing, playing video games and researching information not relevant to duties and responsibilities. And It's across the board, including Js and Hs visas. They too spend way too much bandwidth self entertaining at the company's expense. Sadly, those that produce most and are most competent are the ones let go. They can't layoff people only in their 50s and 60s. They let go people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Bigger lawsuit if they dont. Around 800+ were laid off and others, senior staff, the option to retire.

More notices are coming, I don't doubt it.

YOU are in charge of your life and career, not Oracle. Why not do something about it? Take some classes, upgrade your skills, look for work elsewhere. It isn't as if Oracle suddenly transformed overnight into the company it is today. Take the energy spent bemoaning the Oracle status quo and invest it in your life. Take control.

Or are you just a hanger-on who prefers whining about change while continuing to live in fear?

The people that are doing the work of one person are the smart ones. They are counting on the fools (like you) doing the work of 2-3 people to pick up their slack. And while you're picking up their slack, they're making sure they schmooze the right people to appear relevant. So, if you were smart, you'd start doing less, being a good "yes" man and kiss more a** up the management chain. Go take some of that free training and certification now being offered (a lot of it is non-Oracle) and open yourself to more outside opportunities.

Yes, that's correct. Doing the work of 2-3 people each. They don't care about the employees or obviously the customers.

The support engineers (and even some of the developers) ARE overwhelmed. They can't keep up with the volume that is not decreasing, and when engineers get laid off, SOMEONE has to pick up the work they used to do.

Anybody who doesn't believe that doesn't work in Support and probably twiddles their thumbs all day. Or don't even work at Oracle.

You shouldn't complain, at least you have a job. Remember that hundreds of employees were laid off by Oracle and the chance to find employment is dim because this recession is pandemic driven, and the magnitude of decline in employment and production is huge. It encompasses the entire economy and almost all businesses are freezing hiring.

You’re all doing the work of two or three people each? Yeah, right.
