    We have no such thing. But we have one with a similar name. In general, I don't recommend this company at all. Unless you can grab a fat TC, then you can survive here for a while, but eventually you'll either get bored, or get frustrated.

      ex-Sun, I wouldn't even go close to it (because of political reasons)

      What do you mean by political reasons? Seems like they have a different kinds of projects. So you think still is not a good option if their offered TC is good and project seems interesting?

    I’d be really wary of joining Oracle. It can be good, especially in OCI, otherwise it’s more often than not frustrating.

      They use to say that about RAPID too. However it got shut down completely. Most people were let go at the time.

      rapid was like a hundred plus people iirc, keybridge is only 20 or so so it's a smaller target for rifs I'd think

      Yeah, nowadays people were scattered across multiple projects. Guess they have learned something from rapid. It's not ended for nothing in this point of view.

      rapid's main issue was not necessarily that it was big, it was that it had no internal customer and only existed because LE liked it, so when one day LE stopped liking it, that was the end

      That's true. So does the egg in the basket thing.

    wlb is great IMO. Compensation is similar to elsewhere in the company AFAIK (except OCI). Projects vary, some are more interesting than others. Career growth is probably pretty hard, again similar to the rest of the company.
