Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Looking forward a major layoff in OCI

Why?
Amazon 10k cut
Twitter. 3.75k cut
Cisco. 4K
I am not happy with the cuts at OCI. Oracle is burning too much cash there.
Guys at OCI, you are eating our lunch. We want you to be more profitable so that non OCI divisions can share the profit and stock price change.

OCI is experiencing the old Beta vs VHS recording tape syndrome. One can be a superior system, like Beta, bit still lose in the popularity of a good enough system like VHS.

Over time, both will be replaced by something new!

As CM's empire is cracking at the seams, how long before he joins those he laid off. No one owns their job, including the Emperor.

I dont know if you are part of that non performer group that is about to get layed off in non oci as well. OCI has come a long way. ADB customer base is increasing. If you are provisioning database for a small but critical application , would you rather do it in OCI or you have to allocate infrastructure pain to do it. People dont eat your lunch. You need to allign your self to the vision of the company.

Micros

They already had a product that could do the job of Micros. It was called "sunray". All you needed was the front end hardware and you had an instant POS system. SO instead of doing that what did they do? Scrap Sunray and spend all that money for Micros.

Makes perfect sense.

In all the years since they made that purchase, how many Oracle/Micros POS systems did I ever see? ONE. In a restaurant now no longer in business.

I've seen more Dell HP Lenovo and even NCR(!) Than Micros in that time.

Simple. We must compete against Tesla, so I expect that the big 0 will buy the Edsel Division from Ford to 50 billion.

Not necessarily, there's always the Mercury Division, and Oh how about Studebaker, Oldsmobile, deSoto or Rambler? They'd all be a perfect fit!

It’s hard to understand that Oracle has a negative mgjt style & they make themselves look bad when they defend themselves, degrade others.
Positive leadership is not weak as they seem to think. Accountability, motivation, incentives, setting goals, raising the bar, teamwork are proven principles for success.
Oracle has had too much cash but now there’s a debt and lower revenue. Oracle has thrown too much money for too long at issues but not corrected anything so issues still exist.
They are in the dark ages and don’t know it …. Employee abuse is unacceptable they don’t think so. I don’t understand that mindset. It doesn’t work. There are rules & Regis that have to be followed. Not a choice.

Here is a legendary company that is becoming toast because of poor mgmt.
They don’t seem to be in touch with reality. Oracle has changed directions.
They we not going to be needed. I guess when they get fired that will be their wake-up. Their jobs are not long term by any stretch. Blows my mind.
They better have a lot saved because they will have trouble getting. Everybody knows about Oracle mgrs.

Employees are only as good as their managers.

Yea that is really a true statement. People seldom leave an entire company, they more often leave their managers. I know this to be the case for me in every single job change I have made, except for the RIF at the big 0.

Cerner is the new shiny penny, or is it the newest ring, a la "The Hobbit"? In any case, OCI is old news and will be treated as such. I do feel poorly for the actual worker bees, they didn't do anything wrong, but they are going to feel the brunt of the latest "correction". I could see this the day they announced the purchase.

0 is now a company in search of a direction. Micros, OCI and now Cerner, what will come next?

I heard that OCI on average spends $250k per engineer. We, at non-OCI on the average, receive a $180k total cost. It's for the same experience, now you know the frustration.

Then why we are not leaving, guys our division's work is very specific to oracle and it is difficult to market ourselves outside. visa issues and current market trends make it worse. Also, we all were told to reset our careers if we start looking outside.

Does it make you feel better to talk down to people calling someone low level?

Employees are only as good as their managers. Oracle mid mgmt is about as low you can get Those that take work from the employees that they manage to get a promotion are usually found out.
Truth has a way of revealing itself.

This is what a low level employee vicariously talking as CEO through an anonymous account behind a keyboard. Your desire to speak in that tone has been fulfilled --- happy?

OCI will be experiencing more and accelerating layoffs in the months and quarters to come. Much of it will be quiet and in small numbers to stay below the radar. As said there is no market demand for OCI, so it will become the infrastructure for Cerner and a few other customers who are locked into Oracle-specific technologies and need the lift and shift that OCI provides.

OCI will never be a general purpose cloud and will never come close to having the capabilities of the major hyperscalers.

Oracle is slowly coming to terms with that, but it takes time. I give CM another year, 18 months at most, before he falls off of Larry's favorite list and is OUT.

Funny you look forward to OCI reductions. One reason I left because I seen it coming and it hasn't even started really. No market demand. With that stated, while you sit high and mighty you will be next. Nobody is insulated and it hits outstanding people. Remember your words when your time is up.

And with no new developments being added this year … fix it mode doesn’t require additional projects. There is a lot of staff with their hands in their pockets, or as the OP suggest, our pockets!

The Emperor does not need the storm troopers.
