Oci is back on a hiring frenzy. This is a warning post on why this place is going to dumps and unless your condition is really bad, you should not consider joining this shitshow. Bad management, unrealistic deadlines which even the management knows cannot be achieved, no refreshers or bonuses. Need I say that the good people are leaving. You have been warned.

    Lots of strong talent at OCI, good pay, and wlb. Wouldn't want to be on your team though, not with that attitude :(

      It seems you have been working at OCI group for such a long time. Could you give a limelight as to how much fresh graduates are making there?. I got verbal acceptance from OCI and need to tell them the package offer.

      P.S. Have two years of experience prior to MS in my homecountry.

    OCI has changed to "budget based" hiring, so don't expect the TC offers to be like they have been the last few years

      What does that mean? Have the offers really gone down?

      No. Just don't see your motivation for being disgruntled other than bitterness.

      Or are we to believe you're doing it out of your benevolence to strangers?

      I'm guessing the op really is OCI but clearly had a bad experience. Could be the team they were on or perhaps they were a low performer expecting to rest & vest. Definitely has a chip on their shoulder.

    I got an offer from OCI which was lower of what I currently make at MSFT. Way to go!

    Don't listen to this troll. What place doesn't take budget and comp ratios into account for offers? Unless you get a shit review, people get refreshers here. Again, what company doesn't work like this? Also, remote work is definitely ok. Lots of us do it.

      If that happens I'll go find another job. I have sympathy for those that lose their job but zero for whiners like you.

      Yjme70, yes big companies rif, but in business which are losing market share and are old legacy organizations. Not in cloud which is a strategic investment for most companies. That tells us, what big idiots are running the show at OCI

      Look I'm no fan of the leaders at OCI, but your statement is false. Azure, AwS, Salesforce, etc. have all done layoffs.

      Yjme70 you are so delusional. Ignorance is bliss
      Aug 4
    • Oracle yjme70
      Yet you cant answer my question. You're the delusional one. For your next salary negotiation, ask them to put in a clause where RIFs aren't allowed. I'm sure that will go over well for you.

    There are many who just want good pay, and dont care about work environment. I know I am not one of them, but I am sure many are.

    Complaining about WLB is a strong signal that OP is a 'rest and vest', they feel entitled by their fat paycheck to not do work they think isn't worth their time. Pressure is 100x better than at Amazon and I rarely see people in the office outside of 9-5.

    “This is a warning post” — yet there is no warning or detail of any kind. Why don’t you next try yelling “fire” in a crowded movie theatre.
