How frequent are Layoffs at Oracle and Mcafee? Do they let people know in advance so that people can look for another gig or is it sudden? I have offers from Oracle, McAfee, and Zscaler. I like the team and the work at Oracle and McAfee but i am a little worried about the Layoffs. At McAfee I would basically be joining the Skyhigh Networks team. Skyhigh Networks was recently acquired by Mcafee. At Oracle i would be part of their Cloud security team. I am leaning towards Zscaler for the stability and TC although the TC at McAfee and Oracle is also +~40% my current TC.
I worked with a guy at oracle pe&o who received a call and was told that it was his last day and to grab his personal belongings on the way out the door. And...he had worked at oracle for over ten years and there was no shortage of work in his dept. I was told later it was a cost cutting measure.
