I’ve worked in the industry for about 4 years now. I got offer from oracle for sdev2 with 140 base and 80k(over 4 years) rsus in seattle. They dont have yearly bonus. What do you guys think about this offer? Is it too low?

    Oracle almost no salary raise as well. So be prepared.

    How is Oracle culture? Expedia seems way better and more lax, while Oracle seems very corporate with a dress code

      They should play that video of Larry Ellison saying “there’s no such thing as cloud” on a loop in the cafeteria

      @Duderin: they should play that video about you saying... wait, nobody knows who you are nor care about what you have to say.

      I'm not fond of Larry, but people like you that just like to point at (and aplify) mistakes... ugh

      People who have been in the biz longer than you have do, junior. Larry smugly making fun of an entirely new way of conducting computer business that was quickly being revolutionized right under his nose is the stuff of legend. It’s also part of the reason OP got a shitty offer, too.

      Haha, did it hurt? Granny? You seem very proud on being old.

      You must be making a gazillion, with a great offer, working a very revolutionizing industry then. I will get out of your way, you got me scared with all your prowess 😢

      You should check out The Innovator’s Dilemma.

      It sounds like you have a defensive affinity for one or maybe even two companies that kicked themselves in the ass after trying to always do the same thing the same way (Oracle and MS). Or you could try to score a turkey and move to IBM next 😂

    Depends if it's Oracle corporate mothership or OCI. Very different things there. I saw a thread of a level 3 making upwards of 350k TC.

      It is not true. Ic3 cannot make 350k. Someone is trolling. Lol.

    Heard OCI missed revenue goal badly. So it may not live long.

      I think they’re saying FB didn’t do well on their last earnings report either. Doesn’t make what @fb2017 is saying any less relevant though

    I think it's pretty good, considering that at Oracle there's no SDE 1, you got the lowest level with 140k as base, I say not bad :)

      You have to ask for a signing bonus.

      Ask for one - it also locks you in for a year or you have to pay back. Wtrggv he got RSU which is not the same as signing bonus (cash)

    I don’t know anyone that got a signing bonus with Oracle but I’m sure it varies by team/ org
