      Why? Do you work at OCI specifically? I heard they are compensating very well and the cloud work's good
      Jul 22, 2018

      Yes, I do. They are playing a catching up game. A lot of ICs do not believe in the products they're working on. It's like people are working there just for the money and not because of the passion. If money is your motive then you can give it a try. If you could land an offer elsewhere, it's better for your career

      Money is my motive, but I don't want a toxic workplace. How is the work. Is it fun?

    OCI's good. Lots of stuff to build, so there's plenty of opportunity to take ownership or find a way to make something useful and grow your career. Good work life balance. Mostly more experienced engineers. Top notch compensation.

      You must have a lot of RSUs tied up in this don't you? That's one way to frame what another Oracle employee above called "captains are desperate". Look, at a personal level, I wish you luck. At an OCI level... I mean... Seriously? 2 Data Centers, really? You're not a provider, that's less than most Fortune 1000 companies have. PLUS, using your licensing audits to strongarm users to use your cloud is... Not really putting customers first.

      I would say definitely join if you like challenges of building something from scratch. . Work place, environment and people are good.

      I understand all the naysayers who don’t work for Oracle. But if you do and don’t believe, we are better of without you. Why don’t you quit and go somewhere you will be happy.

      BuyMyCloud I'm not going to say you're wrong. You may very well be right (except about data center count). But I'm not one to conflate business success with personal success. I hope OCI succeeds. I'm working to see that it does. And I think we have a decent chance, though by no means do I think it's a certainty. However I am successful if I get to work on interesting projects, have good WLB, grow as an engineer and in my career, and get well compensated. So far, so good.

      I hear you guys. Our personal pursuits are worthy of the cause. I honestly wish you all the best of luck. I just have a big problem with OCI's grandstanding.

    I agree with others assessments but again it depends on the team.
    IMO ask for $300 TC. See what the mgr says. Push the boundaries cuz the captains are desperate.

      Oracle is essentially a great place to work if you know how to handle or avoid bad teams and find good, interesting work, but often the hard top down direction is killing many products, mostly due to high level politics out of reach from most of us down below (even at director/ sr director level).

    TC $210k to $250k, Oracle is offering 30-45% more than MS salary.
    Jul 22, 2018 3
    • Oracle Facebook!
      So? MSFT stock might grow and offset the difference soon. Expecting good returns from ORCL is next to impossible

      We are in tech bubble right now. Stocks will go down very soon.

    It's true, OCI is great. If you want to make more money and have the opportunity to grow your career more rapidly than elsewhere, give it a shot.

      ...I look around just in my department and I see 6 ex-OCI now Googlers that started in the last 12 months... OCI is "great" alright. The Titanic also looked "great" until...

    Ignore the negative comments. ORACLE is a great place to work. Great work life balance and on the decent projects like OCI, excellent compensation. Expect 250k comp

    At IC3, I would say TC $200 - $250. I would try to start at IC4. And not to pile on, but the culture is toxic right now for sure

    Just for the heck of it, negotiate higher! If they are desperate to get you they might counter for way more than they initially offered.
