Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Oracle Stockholm Syndrome

Theory: The longer you spend here, the harder it is for you to think about going elsewhere no matter how much they abused you and suckered you into the idea that the company was 'a family.'

How you climb out from underneath, ex-employees?

Bob Evans is/was a personal friend of one of Oracle's leaders.

Severely Biased and not remotely objective.

Re: OCI - there is no way Oracle are going to ever tell the truth about just how underwhelming the entire thing is. The tech, the lack of major customers and of course, the ‘leaders’. Those of you that know what I’m talking about also know the amount of money put in to this cr-p.

If that’s the number no wonder it’s not broken out in the financial results released publicly.

What makes you think those numbers are accurate? they can't lie on the financial report. They can everywhere else. If you are going to break out the numbers for some hack reporter, why not make it official? Because if they did, they'd be on the hook for their authenticity. Anywhere else, it doesn't matter. Think of it this way, if those are the numbers they are touting in some third rate article, how good are they REALLY when they still cover them up in the official certified reports?

EXACTLY

it stinks like week old mackerel in the sun.

It isn't the "Stockholm Syndrome". It's the Oracle Doormat Principal.

Interesting take. Not inaccurate. People do start to get beaten down if in a toxic environment long enough.

My problem was that I was in a great situation and worked with great people with a great director and senior director. I liked where I was and therefore put up more than what I normally would have. If I had been in a toxic situation I would have had no issues jumping ship at the drop of a penny. I did it before and I have no qualms about ever doing it again.

Take my advice, if it is bad, it never gets better. Never, only worse. Get out, the sooner the better. If you like where you are, fine, stay until it becomes otherwise. You owe them nothing but a day's work and to not talk out of school when you do leave. That's it.

Wow spilling the tea on the OCI revenue 😁

It isn't the "Stockholm Syndrome". It's the Oracle Doormat Principal. These are employees with very low self-esteem, who likely are not employable anywhere else, and are too scared or paralyzed to take any action in their own best interests.

After 7 years of no raises and diminishing bonuses, it was enough. I could go on with other things but it doesn't matter. It didn't matter how much money you made them or how hard you worked. Nothing made a difference. My motivation was gone and my skills were eroding. I tired of trying to sell things customers did not want. I saw the quarterly results and OCI was about 900 Mill. That is like an ant. Yet, the boasting goes on. 7-8 years ago it was Oracle is going to beat AWS and take market share. Bob Evans finally wrote an OK article besides the BS ones telling the world how great Oracle is. It is easy to have great growth rates when you are comparing it to the little revenue you have compared to others. Meanwhile, you make no gains in market share. Everyone else are growing too. For me, it was just time and probably 3 years late.
