Received an offer from OCI team in bay area. But worried with their mass layoffs happening every year in OCI.

Is their cloud business growing?
Why are they hiring if they already had a layoff ~3 months ago? Is there any roadmap?
Is it safe to join them as i am on visa?

TC $180K

Oracle offer IC2
joining bonus 5k
RSU 5000units
Base 155k

Total $ 226k

    I don’t understand, why OCI is doing new recruits then. Are they hiring to fire people.

      They are trying with lots of new projects. Most don't work and are not going anywhere. Cutting those projects and laying off the highly paid folks.

      Just curious do you know if they are firing senior engineers only or it’s across all level.
      What I am trying to understand is you said firing highly paid folks. Are entry level engineers fired too like IC2?

      By that I pointed toward the high TC they were offering to the new hires.

      Really? Specific teams or organization wife thing? Also performance based or cutting corners?

    Some teams ARE horrible. Others might be ok. Unless u r desperate, better to stay away from OCI with 180 TC..

      Horrible in what respect?

      Regular 24x7 on calls (often high pressure), aggressive deadlines on projects.. sometimes they overlap and some teams won’t give vacation even at family emergencies. Your call to decide if TC 180k worth that

      @wannamove are you talking about oci or oracle in general? I heard that oci is like a different “startup” inside oracle, so they have a different lifestyle so to say.

      Exactly this is oci “lifestyle”

    At least its not amazon. OCI is filling up with ex-amazonians trying to make it into amazon though. Like people moving away from california then trying to turn their new state into california

    Depends. Join if it works for you.

    And, even then, have a 1-2 year exit strategy.

    I would just stay away since I am on visa. They are continuously laying off.

    Oracle is going through a bad phase and layoff are common in India and bay location, I was there for 9 years and recently quit due to instability.

    Sorry off the track question but just curious how much maximum joining bonus does OCI gives at IC2 and IC3 level.

    • Microsoft ajebajehy
      Nothing for joining. But they'll give you severance once they lay you off.

    • Goldman Sachs babachu
      Can we negotiate severance package before joining?

    Offered TC and level?

    Oracle doesn’t layoff any more than many other tech companies. Plenty of people on visa.

    OP
    Updated the offer, I find joining bonus low. What’s the maximum they can give

      @OP: I have an upcoming onsite for OCI. How should I be preparing? Just Oracle tagged LC questions? And what level of questions can I expect? Easy, medium or hard?
      Thanks!
