Thread regarding Oracle Corp. layoffs

Hw , Solaris , Eng Sys..

..Would the current batch of Systems/Solaris folks be still around ? The customers still have our products. I wonder if Oracle plans to keep around the remaining folks for longer time.

"Solaris group is hiring."

Perhaps to back fill for some people who resigned since Sept 1. It would be legally problematic to start hiring so soon after the Sept 1st RIF.

The remaining HW/solaris folks should be fine until March 2018.

True. Regional bias by higher-ups in org during layoffs is pretty glaring, and defies talent or cost logic. Regional rules can slow somethings, not stop it.

"What raises, promotions? I am in the Systems Group and was due for a promo before the apocalypse last September - no news of it now."

Haven't figured it out? Unless you are in EMEA , neither your job, or promotion is guaranteed. Hail our unethical, biased leadership.

With Intel security flaw, Sparc is the only HW not affected. Customers will buy a bunch of it. Sun is making a comeback! Get aboard the train choochoo!

"My $0.02 - Despite rumors , remaining Systems folks would still be around. We just can't abandon our current paying customers."

Are you talking about engineering or sales? the latter one has been OFFICIALLY killed last december, at least in EMEA, even if details of the killing are still to be disclosed per each region..,

HAHHA!!!

You don't know Oracle very well. We will abandon our customers at the drop of a hat. As one of countless examples, look how we handled Oracle Forms. Sure, we keep accepting support money, but there is no one left who can fix even the simplest of issues. Or how about Hyperion? There is a mountain of customer bugs waiting to be assigned, but only OCP stuff gets fixed these days. They aren't even fixing serious security flaws anymore. Zero engineers to do anything.

They are giving raises and promotions because the know they cut too many in September and they are trying to keep the remaining Solaris people from leaving. That could change in a few years but for now, that's what they are doing.
