Just curios are there any folks waiting for oracle offer letter? I was interviewed in early Feb, 2019 and still waiting. Is this common? For interview, they were so aggressive for booking my flight to setup onsite interview in Bay Area but now recruiter and hiring manager are mentioning process is still in approval phase!

Appreciate your inputs, thanks in advance

    According to my neighbor Oracle is not that bad, yes of course bureaucratic and a bit slow but not a bad company. Their cloud will never beat AWS or Azure but it will continue to grow. They have great sales guys and a lot of existing oracle customers.

      243546 we do have a good cloud , check the instance shapes that we offer with dedicated gpu, targeted towards hpc. That’s just one example. The problems I have with the company are not technical in nature (clueless management and bureaucracy )

      Oh for sure, you’re correct. My point is that Oracle has little in terms of customer case studies. What is OCI’s Netflix?

      Frankly Oracle doesn’t need Netflix or airBnB. They have much bigger clients including all three of my x-companies. Oracle’s biggest challenge is for them to convert their OracleDB licenses into OCI. A lots of local, regional and international governments are so called targets and Azure is their biggest competition there.

      Yeah they’re good at RDBMS in a world that’s increasingly going NoSQL.

    You don’t want to go to Oracle. You might want out of your current gig, but Oracle isn’t the answer. No vision, no leadership, plenty of politics, unfathomable bureaucracy.

    Very common. It takes between 8 to 12 weeks. Stay in touch with your hiring manager and recruiter
