I have no idea what organization you would be getting into so I can't tell you. There are good area in which to work. Despite getting RIF'd, I had a good experience at Oracle, I worked with great people, had excellent and supportive management and I enjoyed the work i was doing. Having said, there are areas that are so toxic, they should be under consideration as a superfund site. I know more than one person who were so miserable they left to go lateral or even a downgrade just to get out. Having said that, you will face no bonuses or raises, get chiseled and nickled and dimed on every turn and face the spectre of RIF's monthly. Go in with a realistic views and your eyes wide open.
It's a c-apshoot. I say give it a shot, if it doesn't work out, go someplace else. Hopefully you can have the same experience I had.
