Looks like the 5th of October it is. I just had the dreaded 1-2-1 meeting invite.
Thought I had heard October 15th
Next week someone will pop up and say 14th October. Been here before. Never any hint of a source. Still, it stops the trolls from getting lonely and helps keep the site traffic flowing. Am I being too cynical?
5th of October is the new date, see you all next week. Best of luck.
Try to learn to relax when the time comes, deep breaths as you are grabbing your ankles. It won't hurt as much that way.
"The silence really is deafening. It’s almost October and still absolutely nothing."
This is how the US side felt from June through August. I see it's a different day, same shtick out there.
And you find some smart as--s shouting 22nd! Who the fu-k knows anything in this company! This is sickening and frustrating!
The silence really is deafening. It’s almost October and still absolutely nothing.
My resume, portfolio, application letters are all ready to go. But I have very good reasons for sitting around waiting for the RIF. You might think it’s not a good way to live but right now I would be crazy to walk away when there’s a very real chance of being let go with a severance package in the next few weeks. It would give me greater financial security and reduce the pressure on me when looking for the next job.
If I’m still sitting around in 3 months time then I will see your point - you can’t wait forever. But until then I won’t be worrying about cutbacks, just wishing I could be part of them.
Sitting around waiting for Oracle to RIF you is not a good way to live at all! Get your resumes out there right now and find something else. Lots of much better companies to work for than O.
You don't need to continue worrying year after year about what Oracle may do with cutbacks. You deserve much better than this.
From below - in advertising (measurement) based in London. Sounds like cxa org is getting both barrels the last month or so.
advertising division hit in London today. 2 confirmed layoffs so far
Sorry to hear that. Which team and LOB? Nothing here in London so far.
So just had my 1:1 and indeed been made redundant. 30 days consultation period and after that it looks like I'm out the door.
Good luck everyone.
All of Belfast getting the axe today
Guys if you can share something please do it in a clear way, everyone is suffering already with anxiety over such uncertainty.
Did anyone get a 1:1 in their calendar for tomorrow? Sales or Presales? CX?
Well this is great. Had a 1:1 invite out into my calendar earlier for tomorrow. Better update my CV.
The axeman will swing his axe on the 22nd.
Well, it sounds like you have another month until after Cloud World …. As long as stock does not hit 63. After that all bets are off.
You’ve got to hand it to them, they couldn’t have handled this situation worse if they’d tried to. Everyone is just perpetually living in fear of losing their job while remaining completely unproductive. The only way you’ll know a date is when a last minute 1 to 1 meeting drops into your calendar.
I wouldn't bother trusting a specific date when the info is as vague as it is here. If they're right, that's a bonus. But best not to get your hopes up. Some people post dates on here to mess with you. Others are just guessing. The people who really should be able to answer your question don't have a f-----g clue either, because they've made a complete mess of the restructure.
Discussion concluded. Not that day.
22nd based on managers training
An internal … discussion … is ongoing. Know soon!
22nd is your guess or you actually know?
