I have an offer of 215k - 145k base, 45k rsu, 25k sign on bonus. Yoe - 5yrs. Does this offer look fair or above market value in Seattle ?

Anyone working in oci- what is it like to work here ? I am aware of negative outlook in the press. But I am more interested in the kind of people and projects I get to work on. I would like to work with motivated engineer on hard problem which needs scalable solutions.

    If you're looking for good projects and learn more then OCI is the place. But if you're looking to make more money while learning good stuff then OCI is not the place. ORCL is almost the same from 2015. Unless, OCI succeeds, Oracle is a dying company.

      @lkepink : Haha.. You do realize that a lot of hiring is going on because it's a now or never situation for them in the cloud. They've have money and investing it by poaching people from AWS and Azure.

      By your evolving netflix originals point, Are we talking about innovation or are we talking about making money, because if its about making money, then Oracle is making money regardless of however and if its about innovation then making originals is not an innovative idea by netflix.

      Successful ML product? Oracle is not in the business of making 1. Why should every company make a cool technology. The main point of a company is to make money and Oracle is just fine there.

      Java licenses? Something tells me you don't know what you are talking about. Oracle has grown YoY, go check some financial documents instead of just looking at stock and making bullshit claims.

      Evolving points is his shameless way of self-denying a lack of coherence. He'll be saying it's still dying 10 years later with good revenue growth lol.

      GTFO you old Oracle farts. Bring valid points to the debate not blindly support a company because it has cash.

      That's it, give it up altogether rather than evolve the points.

    Thanks everyone for the input - does 280k sound like reasonable TC to ask for ic3 with 170k base ?

      Haha..bitter? Lol.. An avg ic3 offer is around 225k to 235k. OP, you're free to ask $300k, $280k or whatever you feel like. Just be aware if your expectation is too high they might rescind your offer. So the way you negotiate is important. And, do not trust this bakshi guy here, he doesn't work here and don't have first hand data points.

      Just so you know ic3 is equivalent of E4 at Facebook and lower L4 at Google. It's not a senior level.

      And, G and FB doesn't pay $280k at L4(lower L4 at Google)
