Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Laid off after nine months at Oracle

Does this happen often? A guy who started about the same time as I did was recently laid off. That's not even a year with Oracle and he was shown the door. I'm not sure if it was him not doing a good enough job and suffering the consequences or if that's something that happens here all the time to new hires.

I’m still at Oracle. Six figures to work 5-7 hours a week, sleep in, run my side biz, not give a sh-t about customers and run my investments. Any more I just laugh. They made me do it Larry.

Sounds tempting, but how do you get away with it?

maybe that person failed the background check. HR conducts background checks after hir and due to the pandemic, results (especially questionable ones) take longer to verify.

OMG, all the losers that still work at Oracle. Once upon a time I thought they were all at IBM. I realize now that Oracle has the bulk of the industry has-beens.

There is a saying I heard many times at Oracle, "Last in, first out"

I would never compare Oracle to Amazon in a million years. The people I know that work for Amazon are highly skilled and hard working and actually solid people. Compare Oracle to Kmart or Enron. Closer fit. Feed those rats some cheese for the holidays. Stuff them fat like pigs.

In the dev area I was in, most of the people are completely clueless. They are all suckups to various management and they all stick together. If they hire someone new, then they are not going to lay off one of themselves. They would lay off the new-hire. I suspect they might hire someone just to get some specific information or get past a sticking point, then they would think nothing of getting rid of that person.

Don't know about the people you were working with, but the people I worked with would very well have done that. Use and dispose. That's the way these people think. Keep the loyal ones and get rid of the ones that know anything before they figure out who they are working for.

The rats are running the show, basically anything can happen to anyone.

Some companies, like Amazon, have turnover goals: they will hire employees with the intent to fire them later just to meet these goals; maybe this is the case here.

Management considers folks like you and the aforementioned casualty to be "low hanging fruit" when it comes to reducing headcount.

I guess the other guy doesn't read this message board, where many warnings have gone out not to join Oracle.

It’s management by example; they wanna show the rest of employees are just another liability
