      Most of OCI from what I understand. Depends on your rating though.
      1-2-3 you get nothing
      4 you get a little bit
      5 you get a lot

      Which is a fair amount for a 4 rating.
      5 might have gotten you 3 times that.

      Remember Satya lates-off 5/6 times and doing well now. It’s normal and expect Oracle to do well as the deal with Microsoft also good for both enterprise company’s.

      Right, because the problem is the old engineers just aren’t good enough. That they were 8 years too late to the party and mired in 40+ years of questionable business practices has nothing to do with it.

    At best it will become another IBM. Stable but uninspiring revenue. They made the same mistake as HP and got into cloud really late, but didn't pull the plug like HP smartly did.

      What dismantles those who were cloud first or moved to cloud successfully?
      Jun 12
    • Workday Whatday?
      Don't rule out Oracle or SAP just yet! Not too long ago people had said Microsoft was dead (anyone remember?) but they have bounced back to new heights!

      Many old tech titans still own huge businesses and have the financial resources to compete and even crush the so-called first comers. There are numerous examples where late comers eventually won.

      If you believe Workday has already won, you have drunk too much of their Kool-Aid!

      Time to wake up, Workmates!

    Specifically, 300 people were cut from Oracle’s Seattle offices in the early rounds of layoffs, including 25% of the all-important group known internally as Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, or OCI, one employee told us and another, who was laid off in Seattle, confirmed. *Corporations do not have to report layoffs in Washington unless 500 people are affected in a single location at one time,* and Oracle has not publicly reported layoffs in the state.

    Wow

  • Amazon / Eng sde3
    It is good, we laid off a bunch of OCI-C people and OCI low performers (most from msft, worst devs I have seen in industry). TC is 600k+ now, and I always switch company after 3-4 years regardless of the situation.

      Well moron. How is my mindset to get out of comfort zone and try a new challenge every few years is the same for all amzn devs? And how is this the reason that wlb in aws is bad, lol seriously? And the reason that I brought up I worked here and there is in the first part of the very same sentence (if you can read).
      Jun 13
    • Oracle simple3
      Your tc is 600k+ at oci? I don’t think anyone can save OCI as long as you are here
      Jun 13
    • Oracle simple3
      Dumb asses like you who have to call the other guy an idiot or moron in every sentence getting 600k+ lol believable
      Jun 13
    • Amazon / Eng sde3
      You are called moron for what you are. Read everything again and see how you keep dodging argument and running around like a headless chicken. And now you are attacking 600k TC? Lol it is not that good, FB and G pay even more, snapchat pays shitload more. I refuse though, but will leave once I deliver my shit. It is how ownership and commitment work, unlike you who suck shit and is scared of getting fired.

    And Azure partners with OCI. Losers coming together for the end.....layoffs in Azure coming. No real long term revenues guaranteed in cloud as AWS has mined and minted it in cloud.

      And Don would be the 'head of OCI' but last I checked he's still the head of OCI, so parent comment is probably not referring to Don.

    "Between the infighting, the layoffs and the emphasis on efficiency, all three employees we talked to seemed exasperated."

    The whole sensational article was written on the back of talking to three employees.

    Why the heck would Satya partner with OCI knowing it’s a mess??? OCI is all ex Microsoft and there was no doubt it was a failure. Looks like Azure has conceded to AWS owning cloud and getting in bed with OCI is s sign of hard times for Azure. The paid media going hung up on Azure will have to eat their words. How long can Satya and Amy cook Azure numbers before being held accountable???

      Sounds like the Microsoft and Nokia crap show all over again. Microsoft probably going to try and take over, kill the weaker player to try and clear a little way for them. Then a year later declare it a total failure as AWS keep on growing!
