Morale in Seattle Oci overall

How is the general morale? Are complete teams decimated or is there any hope? I have my h1 approved and will join in a month. Now I am really having second thoughts. But my current place is bad too. I was expecting to do some good work there and be part of a new product.

    Don’t join. With no external customers it is a matter of time before OCI is hit pretty hard even further.

      My only concern is about being let go few months after joining. I wouldn't mind getting an year's worth of runway to move out. But I can see what you are saying.

      Run away from OCI being on visa. Shits going to hit the fan pretty soon.

    I thought OCI was left unaffected but OCI-C was slaughtered. Is that not true?

      Nope.. it impacted everyone and OCI as well. In fact some OCI-C teams are fine in non-seattle locations.

    Does anybody think talking to the hiring manager about this is a good idea? I might be sounding crazy but I guess it's not normal times anyway.

    • Usually first level managers won't have any idea about such mass layoffs. The entire team will be gone. Given the outlook of OCI's business, such layoffs will be coming more in future.

    With visa, it's a risk. I've heard many employees weren't even given notice period.

    • Yes, heard the same. Not worth the risk of being in an unfortunate situation with visa.

    Maybe join but start looking around again? If something else works out then leave?

    Morale is low. Entire Teams with outstanding engineers were decimated. Many were on visas. Don't know when the next wave of layoffs will be
