7 years of abuse -- should never happen. i'm happy that you found a better way. The abusers seem to have no remorse. We all find our power in some form. We were not made to control and abuse others., Oracle VPs & mgrs seem to feel that it's their duty -- that's how sick these people are.
They have no clue how mentally deranged they are and they need to be terminated, immediately. During difficult times, as they continue to do what they know to do - it has a way of being more obvious. Sadly Oracle is not the only employer that abuses their employees. Employee abuse, stealing work for self credit, promotion is inexcusable.
Everything has changed. As bad as the pandemic has been if, there is a silver lining, the Great Resignation has changed corporate culture. Consultants are being hired to work within many industries. Ethics is becoming important, again. A pat on the back is everything, encouragement, good managers lead by coaching producers to raise the bar and achieve much for themselves which, makes the company strong. Oracle is weak the dysfunction is scary. Oracle and IBM were pioneers of much but, sadly will be remembered badly with the worst reputations. Right now, nobody cares about bad reputations but, that mindset is taking a 180.
Employee abuse will be written about and those that think they got away with it -- might be surprised. Culture affects health and mental illness is unpredictable. those that abuse others, abuse themselves. Retirement in an institution ia not attractive neither is abuse.
