I will soon be choosing between AWS and Azure but would also like to consider OCI if they hire new grads. Does anyone have any info in this? All the job postings I saw were for senior positions.

    No, OCI is really bad choice

      Do you think in a few years it will be different? With all the investments Oracle is pouring in?

      With work it’ll be different in some years but i don’t believe in the crappy management. OCI requires too much managing up. They are promoting SDEs with little to no management experience to act as managers...what gives...

      I think what you are speaking of is an unfortunate side effect of bringing in people from AWS and Azure. The strategy is to poach people and build the product to catch up. I suspect once they catch up a little, they can fix these things.

      Yeah, exactly. Hella title inflation going on at OCI. I personally don’t have a couple years to waste. I want real experience and don’t want to deal with the BS politics.

      Could you view the situation as half glass full? If you were at azure or aws, it’s more mature and it will have layers with red tape. OnE could argue you have more potential to make an impact at an early stage OCI?

    Not usually but I have seen new grads hired through regular recruiters (not college) because the recruiter got confused about some internship experience and counted it as real work experience for that person. In general I don’t recommend OCI for new grads. No mentor ship here and the managers and Ic5s won’t help you grow your career. They only care about their own ass and will just throw you under the bus. I am IC3 myself and I feel like I’m bottom of the barrel left to do all the grunt work..unable to make a difference or get promoted and I’m going to waste away here...they might pay you the most compared to other companies but there is no growth in career or raises.

    If you get any other name on your resume it’s better than Oracle...

    Please don’t come.

    As of now I’m leaning towards Amazon unless MS offers a good bit more. I should probably apply to some other places too I guess.

    Go to AWS, learn a ton. Hop to Azure after you burnout. Land a cushy L63, rest and vest.

    I second not recommending OCI for new grads.

      Because of the fucked up rewards system at Microsoft.

    Yes. College hiring is a different process. You won’t see such positions on their website.

      Do I just need to apply to a general Oracle new grad position then or how does that work?

    • Oracle / Eng yo6dc
      Right. Send resume to that email address. If they want you. You’ll be matched to multiple teams.

      OCI is better

      I figured OCI would pay better than both off the bat, but for sure the worst product out of the three.

      Get over yourself. Working on the “better product” is for newbs. It’s about your own scope and impact. All of OCI people are ex aws and azure people. You think they went “oh product isn’t cool so I’ll stay and work on a cooler product to get paid less and have less impact”?

    What about new MBA grads? I interned as a PMT in cloud computing at Amazon and have a return offer. Super interested in OCI as well but couldn't find any PM roles on the university job postings.

      Amazon is the market leader in cloud. OCI is trying to survive

    • Amazon 7slug
      I'd most likely end up at Amazon but I have a couple of months to accept the offer and it doesn't really hurt to see the options out there. Also the $$ but that's not a priority atm. I just want to see my options OCI, Google, etc

    Yes we do. I’ve seen a few phds and masters guys come in as senior mts. A bunch of good internships or good experience with java or go helps.
