Good idea to interview at OCI now?

I saw posts on Blind regarding OCI layoffs. Recruiter has been persistent in trying to get me to interview. I am a little worried about the layoffs. Anyone from OCI can pitch in with how they're doing in the Bay Area?

    No. They say no more layoffs, but do you really believe that? After the last round, the “leadership” team delivered a horrendous all-hands in which they couldn’t answer basic questions like how they’d improve morale.

      Are you seriously asking this question? OCI is a shit show. In a shit company that's doomed to shit. And yes. I'm in OCI. And yes I survived the layoffs. And yes I'm getting the fuck out of here.

      OcI offers stocks ! But there is no bonus ! Their ESPP is pathetic as oracle stock won’t grow. No yearly hike ! If you do the math their pay is not that great

      Haha - don't want to waste time interviewing if not worth it. Already have other offers - but would like to consider OCI due to proximity to home and wlb.
