Topics regarding layoffs at Oracle Corp.
Oracle is going to hugely benefit from the new tax law and continue to lay people off. Well, when downloadbesttorrentblog.rus pick up on calendar 2018, let’s make sure we cause a big stink about it. The purported purpose of this give away to large corporations is... read more
I predict the new autonomous database will run fine on small data sets, but when you get in the terabyte range it will be terrible. The reason that it will perform poorly is that it will take forever (and it does) to run statistics. They will have to... read more

Time for a good morale booster.
Would like to hire the ex-Sun Solaris Kernel/Platform developers. It's been challenging to track down where they are. If anyone knows someone from that team, let us know.
How many people will lose their jobs in Cloud due to the Aconex acquisition, of which I'm still failing to understand the purpose? Oracle is always consolidation trigger happy, so I'm pretty sure that loses on both sides will be rather high. Next... read more
It is almost certain Oracle is shutting down certain on-premise software products and moving long term support to India and China. So all people related to those products will be gone in 2018. It will be blood letting the entire year as oracle goes... read more

The new layoff is scheduled for January when you return. Business model will change, sales organization will go through restructuring and ECAs will be cut. Happy holidays!! This is not a fake news. Just wait and watch.
Failing oracle, unable to keep up with competition in the cloud had to make yet another expensive acquisition, this time of Aconex. All of which raises a simple question: why does oracle have a huge and hugely expensive Development group and how... read more
Did you folks notice the new oracle strategy? Yeah, they’re posting here, pretending to be employees/ former employees and suggesting how the rest of us should behave. Be nice to oracle, don’t criticize - it’s a small world and the arm of oracle is... read more
All people you that complain about Oracle. Shame on you. You need to support the company as it grows in the cloud space. Do the needful.
No layoff reported this past week. Total for FY18 stays at 7,275; and since 6/1/2016 at 17,275. Hopefully that’s it for this calendar year. Next calendar year looks like it has potential for continued layoffs give the remaining restructuring reserve... read more
I had a great run at Oracle but have now left the company. While I am disappointed to have left I won't bad mouth the company as this is such a small industry and word gets around.
Companies can also run Oracle database on AWS, but earlier this year, Oracle changed its licensing in such a way that it essentially doubled the cost of running and Oracle database on AWS cloud. The idea was clear: Oracle wants to make it cheaper for... read more
This is what needs to happen to Oracle, particularly TK's organization. /
Oracle is a dream company for me but I don't know how to get hired. How did you get hired by Oracle?
"..Oracle did try to sugarcoat things (no doubt, the company is pretty good at this!). ..But unfortunately, such metrics are really just noise. .." /
Ok, it should now be blatanty clear to anybody with a brain that oracle is a sinking ship aimlessly adrift and being battered by rocks, in the process of breaking up and sinking, while the captain and his senior mates are adrift in a drunken haze... read more
"..we are clearly market leader..blah..blah..blah.."... is he..high smoking something?

Oracle sank like a rock in after hours trading to below $48 on poor forecast and cloud performance. Hold on to your hats, it’s a long way down.

I just want to get your feedback about Microsoft. Does Microsoft hire Oracle people?? I'm a former Oracle sales consultant. I have tried for a couple of years to get an interview with Microsoft. I'm very qualified for these positions. Unfortunately... read more
Just got word that the ECA's under Hamidont will be consolidated this quarter. Taking out the redundant management (LE, RL, AL) and cutting out bottom 10% of performers (or upper 10% of age depending on what your methodology is). This is supposed to... read more
Are there any senior execs left at oracle? Seem like there are more departures every week. Soon it will be the three stooges, some A-kissers and the new college kids, and that will be it. Nobody with any knowledge and experience and Brian’s left.
Any idea when Oracle will resume the Green Card process. I was told six months from September, the time of Solaris layoffs. It should resume on March. Any news on the status and if it still the same?
/ Oracle Corp. appears to be in a more predictable stage of its cloud transition, but those predictions haven’t lived up to expectations so far. After Oracle’s... read more
Oracle is at it again trying to get money out of google for Java, having lost a whole bunch of lawsuit already. More than anything, this should make it clear to everybody how much oracle’s cloud and other business s---s and therefore how utterly... read more
I've often wondered if demoralizing employees is the goal. Demoralized employees are more likely to leave so it lowers layoff costs. It doesn't seem to matter that demoralized employees are unproductive so they cost more money than layoffs. Oracle... read more
Looks like there were layoffs in EMEA this past week, some uncertainty around the numbers. I will call it 25. That brings the total number for FY18 to 7,275, and since 6/1/2106 to 17,275. Lots of restricting reserve $ left for FY18. Happy holidays... read more
On the one hand I can’t believe SC will not have the opportunity to run another company into the ground; on the other there is something deeply satisfying about the image of SC and Mickey Mouse, maybe because both are such a joke.
