Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Why constant reorgs?

If the goal for every reorg is to improve this company, I see exactly the opposite happening. After each reorg it gets worse.

18 days after the fact, and the systems are still broken. On Monday my manager will have to plead for someone to step up and take assignments because the SR system was not built for this reorg!

There is nothing like a well thought out plan, and this is nothing like it!

Constant reorgs are a sign of a dysfunctional organization. You don’t need an MBA to know that.

On our training the last two days, VK is obviously under pressure to get things going … fast. New 3 POV requirements this year, even from people who were project managers - they now have to act as ECAs.

Good luck!

The funny thing is that they announced the reorg December 1st, and we still are working late on meetings to figure it out, a week later!

There is only one thing we know for sure. On June 1st, there will be another reorganization. It is as sure as death and taxes!

This too shall pass.

the reality is vk has no clue how to run presales. all the grab of implementation engineers etc was to really hide they had no clue how to run presales. eu can run but can't really unseat vk. mid mgmt do whatever they can to survive. If that means, throwing you away or under - it is. This is the modern-day corporate version of squid games. Someone here said experience is garbage and they got to focus on newer tech skills. great. Tell me that when buying becomes a logical decision and not emotional. for the uninitiated, buying is always emotional - never logical. If it was truly on tech capability mapping, no one would buy oci.

Reorg resets previous manager's promises. Now all monkeys start grinding to the next level from 0. It is practiced in Amazon too.

Best description yet. This applies to all companies

It is a form of engineering. It is known as "change the problem", because they can't resolve the original problem. It might make headway, by magic. Sometimes it actually works. It is a very old eastern philosophy. When one cannot solve a problem, drop it and go try something completely different.

Filthy middle management tries to keep loyal bu-t licking incompetent technical leaders and losing competent people as part of reorganization, layoffs or attrition. Unless the chain is broken, things won’t materialize.
You have to pluck the root. Target on senior directors, directors and consulting engineers. Specially people with 10+ experience who hide their incompetence under experience skin. Their old technical skills are not required anymore and they failed to upgrade.
Company will automatically set right after that.

Reorganized are designed to disguise the fact that they don’t know what they are doing. It appears as if they are taking constructive action when they are just flailing.
