In all of my decades of working in tech, I have never seen layoffs handled as poorly as they were on August 3.
20+ year employee neighbor of mine, this is how it went: manager walks into their office at 11:00, after employee was asked to be in by 8:00 and has been watching people packing boxes all morning. Sum total of conversation: "I'm sorry you are being laid off. Please clean out your office and leave your badge, AmEx and laptop with me by 1:00PM, because I am out this afternoon. You will get a FedEx package at your home with an 800 number you can call with questions. Bye."
That is it, after over 20 years.
What a forked up company.
Is this really possible? Is this how layoffs are done at Oracle? I am sorry, @OAdcN8q-2nke, I am not really doubting your words, I am just flabbergasted. This is completely disgraceful and unconscionable.
