"Are you guys not sick of so many all hands ?"
Not at all. My teammates and I all play buzzword bingo. It's the most enjoyable part of the day!
Effective Town hall meetings are a necessary part of corporate communication.
Fixed that for you!

As a glass of water is an essential aspect of naval operations.

Typical all hands. Folks trying to take credit for Uber deal, even if they did not close the deal. And if anyone doesn’t like changes, just put up your hand.
You should see how much they spend on the live town halls.
And no, they don’t appreciate difficult questions, they prefer no one asks anything so they can stick to answering the scripted ones.
“ Aren’t you talking about R.C ? Agree he is a clown . Can’t even put 2 sentences together. ! How can you expect to have ‘communication’ from him ?”
LOL since when did O management stoop to this level . I knew they were bad , but this sounds ridiculous!
Do not make the mistake of asking difficult questions in these all hands calls . Apparently these so called directors doesn’t like it and you would be at the receiving end when there is an event (read layoffs) the next time
Are you guys not sick of so >>many all hands ?
No, not at all. In fact this is one >of many reasons that I love >Oracle.
Yep, and don't forget there's also the benefit of enabling management to make great decisions based on your quality granular input, along with their ability to better communicate the resulting strategy and decisions downward via the con calls. It's a win-win.
Are you guys not sick of so many all hands ?
No, not at all. In fact this is one of many reasons that I love Oracle. I love that fact that I get paid for these useless meetings since I don't really have to pay attention. Also, I love the time spent filling out dashboards on all the activities I'm doing, along with the fact that my boss keeps asking for more and more granular data. It all takes time and eliminates the need to take on responsibility for anything.
“ My org directorof 2 years, who never communicates ( let alone having all hands ) with the team did his first ever one last week .”.
Aren’t you talking about R.C ? Agree he is a clown . Can’t even put 2 sentences together. ! How can you expect to have ‘communication’ from him ?
People want transparency and to be kept informed about things that affect their jobs. Like updates or explanations for layoffs. Like information on how new org structures are going to work. Clarity on what their role is going forward.
All Hands meetings offer none of these. They are frustratingly vague, assume knowledge that people may not have, and are barely relevant to half of the audience. It’s purely done to create the illusion of leadership.
I’ve never once come out of an All Hands feeling like I learned something of value. On the topics I care about the message is always the same “let’s wait and see”.
i hear you . There must be instructions from top management to do it . My org directorof 2 years, who never communicates ( let alone having all hands ) with the team did his first ever one last week . Buoy !!! was he nervous 😬 Now i know why did he never do one . This is on MS support org
Your boss has to look like they are doing something. If you are smart, you will listen in, while multitasking
Are you not entertained?
It’s the SAME deals and SAME people kudos. Just combine it
Fun, you come to a board where people want increased transparency then complain about the company spending too much of your time keeping you informed. 🙄
I think they are optional. nobody is going to miss you if you don't show up!
