Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Ex-O. Colleague has OCI interview….

She asked for 180k base and said they didn’t flinch. Gave two pieces of advice. One, don’t trust HR/hiring mgr. Two, get as much as you can up front.

After 15 years at Oracle, I realize it was the biggest mistake of my life. Not for what oracle was, but for what I thought it was and who was around me; people who couldn’t get a job fixing printers in this day and age. It’s truly amazing how many unsuspecting legacy customer are locked in to using cr-ppy software. Is OCI even in the top 10 of cloud service providers? Haha

GBU = acquired and exploited loser employees.
Milk until desiccated and then discard.

I was in a bad GBU that treated their employees like garbage. 40k signing bonus is amazing.

To the person who got the signing bonus....never even heard of that at Oracle. Granted I was in a bad GBU that treated their employees like garbage. 40k signing bonus is amazing.

There are those who stand in awe at the new management in the marketing area. It is good to know that action will finally be taken.

OCI is in top 10 cloud providers based on market share. I think it's at 2% or 3% behind the big 3, Amazon, Microsoft and Google.
As far as 180K, it depends on what position and where you are located. I'm in Ohio and I received my current job as an IC3 software engineer 2 years ago with a base of 130K and 750 RSUs a year for 4 years for a total of 3,000 RSUs. Whether that amount of money is high or low for Oracle, the combination of base salary plus RSUs is very high in Ohio. I'm aware that being laid off is a possibility, but I'm very glad that I'm about to complete 2 years and making what I'm making. It would take me 4 years to get what I got in 2 from Oracle. Oh, they also gave me a 40K signing bonus. I never negotiated anything. In these 2 years I have not received a raise, but I'm OK with that, at least for a couple of more years.

“ I've never seen an empty post before. “

But quite a few that might as well have been.

Given your background at Oracle, seems like you would advise your friend to run!

For some, it has been too long, I think, to do anything. It seems there are time limits on everything.
Justice matters to me anyway.
