      Oracle DB is not replaced at many orgs. It will take time to find replacement of these DBs, especially for ERP applications

    How does layoff imply not to join a company?
    If they are laying off, they are making space for hiring people with skill sets that match their needs.
    If their product is not making money, stock is falling, financials are bad in general, then it’s a different story.

    • Have you seen Oracle stock. It’s going up, so they must be doing something right.

      Buyback every quarter 10B. Not much growth so far. Join and taste yourselves.

    • Charter yWTI88
      The profits from customers is $7.9 billion and remaining are buy backs to round it off to $10billion. $7.9 billion every quarter is also huge. Plus as they start charging for java from this year and add autonomous in every software they are on right path.

      Stocks go up when companies do layoffs. Investors love that.

    Dude. Details please. People are not going to believe whatever you rant out. I heard OCI-C was impacted and entry level/QA positions
    Mar 21 1
    • Oracle jananahin
      OCI and OCI-C (QA, SRE and legacy components). Stay away from OCI at this moment.

  • Amazon SeekingHLP
    Same at Amazon, layed-off a ton of people in Q4, so I guess don’t join Amazon as well.

    • Amazon gag-me
      Let-go ratio this year is 6%, so bottom 6% ppl will be pip’d and fired in next few months, I imagine. Sadly, some people deserve it, but not all — some ppl just accidentally came to work wearing a MAGA hat and next thing you know, they’re pip’d

      If you come to work wearing gear from a political party you deserve to be PIPed: failed "Are Right, A Lot".

      High performers were let go, but a lot of them will get rehired I suspect

    All that half a million dollar offers for a dead product, of course this is not a surprise. Half the people who work there don't even believe that OCI can make a difference in the market

      No layoffs from OCI - The company told us it made these cuts to shift resources from older businesses into its all-important cloud computing business.

      No where it mentions OCI. All references to OCI-C, Dyn. Don oversees all of the legacy. Layoffs have been happening, no denial but not OCI

      Yeah, it was more OCIC for sure, but lots of OCI as well. Questions from Seattle were pretty tough.

      Yes it has been impacted but picture is not fully clear yet as i only saw middle management and entry QA get Riffed at OCI. The layoffs are part of consolidation between ocic (v1) and oci (v2), bigger impact on ocic

      Amount is still unknown as people are keep reporting. From what I can see both OCI and OCI C are affected

    Not sure if they trim the fat or their business is failing. If it is the former, it is not a bad thing at all (for the business). I am sure they have many low performers.
