Does OCI pay better Microsoft?

Seattle area. OCI recruiters keep pinging me and I'm not accepting them because I have heard from friends at Oracle they don't get any bonus or refreshers.

But according to Blind, OCI seems to pay on par with G/F. Is that true?

Is OCI different from rest of Oracle?

    OCI pay is better but the company is shit. If you want more money then jump but Microsoft has better benefits/culture imo

      Can you please elaborate.. at least difference in benefits?

      These are Oracle's benefits.

      * 5% discount for employee stock purchase
      * 6% 401k matching
      * BlueCross health insurance (you have to pay 100+ to get a decent plan)
      * They pay your phone bill (comes with a catch, everything you message becomes their property)

      I believe that's about it.

      Post Ballmer, at least that's what it felt like when I spoke to the team and managers

      its 6% 401k with 50% match so its 3% and these 3% has vesting schedule

    OCI pay for me is more than double what Microsoft paid me. If you are performing well, the rsu refreshers, promotions, and base pay increases are plentiful. For a high performer it's a no brainier

    Anyone else being attacked by the diversity regime at MSFT? If you look white and male, you are at risk of derailment? Would love to hear more about this.

    Oci pays well, generally has good work life balance, unlimited PTO, and a easy commute if you are in the seattle area. Some teams are really good, other teams are less good (just like every other company). Depending on what teams youre trying to join oci may beat msft or amzn, or it may not

      They problem I guess is... Everyone knows that within Oracle, you have great variance in teams..
      But from your post, it looks like there is quite a bit of variance within OCI itself..
      Is there any specific group one should maybe stay away from ??

    • Oracle / Eng droptable
      It's really not that different from anywhere else. There are teams at aws and azure that are great, and teams that are hot trash. For oci team variance a lot of it depends on what a candidate wants since its a wholly subjective assessment. There are teams I hate because i dont think they do much, but if a candidate loves PowerPoint and meetings for meetings then that's a dream team.

    OCI pays as much or more than Azure groups, and if you get pinged, they consider you to be the cream of Azure. OCI is like a startup, like a fresh new company with $5 billion a year to play with.

      Why changed acc to post twice? You must hate oracle/oci. Just leave, you dummy. I doubt you are in oci though, good luck next time.

    And yea, msft folks often have problems ramping up here, OCI architecture, culture and ownership are very similar to amzn.

    OCI pays about twice what you are getting at msft.

  • Microsoft Lololo101
    Why don’t you ask your friends? I was told very little to no bonus or refreshers when being interviewed. The benefits aren’t as good as msft. BUT they give you a boat load of more money and RSUs.

    If you are good and want to make a good product please come. We are all in it together and can drive up the stock price to benefit us all!!!

    I understand your frustrations but you are doing a disservice to OCI.i think you should know what you signed for. It's in the budding stages. These are teething pain.deal with it
