End of OCI soon?

Saw the news last week that Oracle tried to fight the results of a gov contract. Is there blood in the water? How long before OCI finally sinks?

I’ve also heard that the days of outrageous offers are over. Latest IC3/IC4 offers have been subpar. Plus they had that recent layoff. What’s actually going on over there?

    The market is flooded with OCI people looking to jump ship. I am a HM and I am getting a ton of OCI candidates for the reqs I have open, disproportionately larger than from any other org in the Seattle area

      OCI-C was formed from employees from previous acquisitions and not FAANG level talent

      Is OCI-C IaaS?

      The best analogy I have heard from former Microsoft Directors is OCI-C is similar to the former GFS at Microsoft.

    It has become a tent city. Panhandling and all that.

    OCI will yet prevail because Don Johnson is a genius. And not a serial killer.

      Whatever it is, it most assuredly isn't confessing to unsolved killings.

      Clay is the innovation leader for Don and attracts some of the best talent that is hard to compete against when both companies want the same talent

      Yes. Clay has a magnetic charisma about him. Why, there's no chance he's just another 'Sperg.

      Clay is on his honeymoon. Of course he is having fun right now.

    A lot of people from OCI/ Oracle cloud v2 are leaving. No new services are being planned. Re organizations every month in OCI ( the new cloud)

      Well their hiring page is active with new recruits every week. I find it odd the motivation for them to do internal xfers (according to you) other than as an effort to keep the big salary and RSUs

      Oracle is annual vest around July 4. Nothing unexpected to see people leaving just after they vest.

      Only top talent gets big refreshers so a lot of people leaving probably didn’t get big refresh, will see TC drop.

      Trying to cover up their personal disappointment by saying OCI as a whole is failing. It is not.

    ExaCC (cloud at customer) is doing well on both govt and private companies, the licensing model of that offering is attractive for consolidation

    OCI classic died, OCI is still alive and well.

    Oracle is not giving up on cloud. It is pretty much full steam ahead.

    Most wanting internal transfer are probably remnants of OCI classic wanting to maintain and roll over their big RSUs handouts.
