    Orca for 100 bucks. There is prime or passport card but benefits not same. Hsa option is not good. You are better off with ppo. 401k vests over four years. You need to pay premium for medical insurance. Provider is united healthcare whose coverage has issues. We faced it this year with some pregnancy issues.

    But one thing is good that trumped all this. Since I left Microsoft I literally tripled my TC. From 125 to 370. Can’t beat that.

      ...until you get crushed in the next layoff that could rival the nuclear apocalypse of a medium-sized town.

      I didn’t jump. I was offered a decent offer compared to faang companies. Then I proved I am what I am and climbed up.

    Heard they pay well there. As long as pay is good, benefits are not that important.

    You can buy things with money.

    The problem with Microsoft is like you buy a intel i7 processor to play tic tac toe. I was doing shitty things while there, banging my head against a wall.

    My fear with joining oracle is that Larry doesn't really understand cloud..a few bad quarters and they might axe the whole org just because it's a huge cost center with no profits. It's hard to make such decisions when you're on a visa

      They won't axe the org any time soon.

      But I doubt how that org is going to survive. People there are for cash.

      It takes years to build cloud with a huge commitment on investing on data centers. I don't think oracle is committed yet.

      Sometimes when it is too late, it is too late.

      We will see in three years

      But if they are paying you 100% more, why not! Just join, get the cash and when it fails find another job.
