Cloud Engineer @ Oracle

Amazon Redux
Dec 31, 2018 17 Comments

Searched Bljnd and Glassdoor, very little resources. I have an upcoming phone screen and want to know a little more about this role.

Can anyone from Oracle shed a bit of light on this role? Specially about TC and what they actually do?

This is for the Seattle office.

TC 180k at AMZN

      Oh, do you mean it is not good ?. The offer made to one of my friends seemed really good. How is the work and culture ?

      Pretty good pay, work, and culture. People sneer because it's got Oracle in the name, because they confuse business success with engineering position desirability, and because it's Blind.

    I guess non-OCI Oraclers are jealous, while OCI Oraclers feel they are doing shit.

    How many yoe? Ask for 30% more of top of band amazon comp or ask for next level up and get your title inflated like everyone else. L5 at Amazon? Ask for IC4 and get 380k+ TC. L4? Ask for 300k TC. Just be aware culture sucks at oci and if you don’t suck dick you won’t get a raise so better ask for most possible. Shitty mixture of Amazon and oracle. Lack of transparency and underhandedness aplenty. OCI values are a knock off of amazon LPs but they are not followed at all. Only thing that is better here compared to Amazon is the WLB and TC. Everything else, projects, tooling, management (inexperience and they hide things and lie), politics all suck.

    I’m quitting my job Jan 2.

      In that case try for IC4, with 350k+ TC. Don’t settle for 300k. You’re getting severely underpaid at Amazon it seems. 180k is how much my L4 friend made as SDE1.

      I’m coming up at 2 years but wanted to leave 6 months in.

      Thanks.. I’m not in the SDE job family which is why my TC isn’t much higher. I’ll see what i can find out from the recruiter, TC for this role would prob be lower than what you listed.. since it’s not a developer position i believe.

      Thanks i’ll ask for that if Inmake it that far. What’s your confidence level with OCI? Job security at AWS is unlimited for me, we’re basically printing money here and I have no concerns at all about performance.

      Would you say job security could be a concern st OCI? I don’t imagine they’re doing as well as AWS GCP or Azure.

      I think it’ll be good for the next 5 years. Oracle will always be around. Just don’t expect raises. It’s not good for career growth.
