Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

LAYOFF TRACKER THREAD

Please reply with any news you have of CONFIRMED individual, team and org layoffs.

Please add business unit, how many people you KNOW are affected, location, and any known severance terms. Also if RSUs lost or kept.

If you were not affected but you have teammates who were, please post that here. For example if you are on a team of 8, and three people were impacted, please post number and function if it doesn’t give too much info away.

We want to track general numbers if possible.

Thanks

I'd guess 50% of the marketing team was laid off in high-cost countries like the US. That's over a thousand people from dozens of different departments. That includes lots of top talent, top perf. rating people. No idea what drove the decision making about who stays and who goes, but it wasn't talent (in many cases). Politics and money.

"To HCM, your day will come to, WorkDay will do what Salesforce/servicenow has done to oracle CX."

It won't be for a long time. Technology-wise, we are easily keeping pace and even exceeding Workday in some areas. The Workday bias still exists, but every deal, both up-market and SMB is almost always down to us and Workday.

I know at least 1 case where a US employee with 5 years of service was let go over a brand new IDC hire.

“ Presales has only been hit in CX, HCM and ERP have been fine... at least from my knowledge. We expect it to stay that way.”

To HCM, your day will come to, WorkDay will do what Salesforce/servicenow has done to oracle CX.

I feel ERP is where oracle has done well, somehow not sure how they convinced customers to migrate on to a bloated fusion platform. If only ex oracle employees could get together, and build their own cloud erp? Hmm…

As a senior member who was part of the initial group from 2000 and being with them for 2 decades ,i can vouch and say Oracle sucks you out after taking all your talents and spits out as thou you are nothing..
But believe me guys who got laid off, your time is better and fairly confident none of you will ever repent on this lay off. All the best and stay stronger.. Oracle is made of employees like you and I and its a matter of time when other big employer assembles we can great bigger things than Oracle..

99% of the Oracle Commerce engineering team, including SVP and higher in Cambridge were laid off. It’s looking like the remaining team in Belfast and IDC will be next.

Most of the marketing positions that were hired a few years as Oracle brought paid media in-house (axed all agencies) have been laid off

Does anyone know the exact laid-off count? I am always amazed at how Upper Mgmt can be so blind to throw the baby out with the bathwater. The ones who should be RIF-ed are always safe and the ones who are left behind, sets the mediocrity standards. When you get a Toxic Manager, over-promoted VPs and EVPs (yes, there are a few of them), your life is he-l. When you are fresh hired, you get promised a lot of money and RSUs but what good are those RSUs when you are overworked and get a pink slip right before your vesting anniversary? Don't despair, there is life (and a vibrant life) after Oracle!

This particular thread is ABSOLUTE GOLD.

Keep the details and submissions coming. Any intelligence about numbers numbers numbers is helpful. Let's get the word out about how heartless and soulless that Oracle is, despite how it likes to tout it is such a great workplace.

For all of those who have been laid off. My heart goes out to you, because of the disruption and uncertainly you must feel. It hurts to be rejected by a company you may have really enjoyed working at (or maybe not).

BUT, and many dozens of people here have attested to this over the past years -- whether you are laid off or leave voluntarily, YOU WILL GET A BETTER JOB THAT IS FAR MORE SATISFYING AND PAYS MUCH BETTER - SOMETIMES DOUBLE, OR MORE.

In six months, a year, two years -- you will look back and thank your lucky stars that you parted ways with Oracle, however you did so. Your life will be an order of magnitude better.

Nobody here who has left and is in a better place has anything positive to say about Oracle at all. Only derision, and sadness for both what the company has become, and for the people who run it. Customers hate Oracle. Why not work for a better company whose customers love the company. Why not work for a company that recognizes you for your contributions and talents, and rewards you appropriately for them, and not as a number on a Safra spreadsheet, that is a net cost and should be axed?

Trust me, really...your lives are about to be WAY BETTER.

Is anyone aware of layoffs in Oracle's PR department? That group seems very very bloated and ripe for axing some of the sorority girls who work in it.

In January 2010, a month after Sun was acquired, Oracle laid off 1,000+ of us without batting an eye.

I remember at the town hall with Larry Ellison asking him if layoffs wee coming and he said none were planned as he stink-eyed me for interrupting his propaganda show.

I was out inside of three weeks.

Hearing overall layoff numbers are pushing 10,000. That would roughly make sense if they want to save $1 billion overall.
