Does OCI pay better Microsoft?

May 23, 2018 44 Comments

Seattle area. OCI recruiters keep pinging me and I'm not accepting them because I have heard from friends at Oracle they don't get any bonus or refreshers.

But according to Blind, OCI seems to pay on par with G/F. Is that true?

Is OCI different from rest of Oracle?

    OCI pay is better but the company is shit. If you want more money then jump but Microsoft has better benefits/culture imo

    OCI pay for me is more than double what Microsoft paid me. If you are performing well, the rsu refreshers, promotions, and base pay increases are plentiful. For a high performer it's a no brainier

    Anyone else being attacked by the diversity regime at MSFT? If you look white and male, you are at risk of derailment? Would love to hear more about this.

    OCI pays as much or more than Azure groups, and if you get pinged, they consider you to be the cream of Azure. OCI is like a startup, like a fresh new company with $5 billion a year to play with.

    Oci pays well, generally has good work life balance, unlimited PTO, and a easy commute if you are in the seattle area. Some teams are really good, other teams are less good (just like every other company). Depending on what teams youre trying to join oci may beat msft or amzn, or it may not

      They problem I guess is... Everyone knows that within Oracle, you have great variance in teams..
      But from your post, it looks like there is quite a bit of variance within OCI itself..
      Is there any specific group one should maybe stay away from ??

      It's really not that different from anywhere else. There are teams at aws and azure that are great, and teams that are hot trash. For oci team variance a lot of it depends on what a candidate wants since its a wholly subjective assessment. There are teams I hate because i dont think they do much, but if a candidate loves PowerPoint and meetings for meetings then that's a dream team.

    And yea, msft folks often have problems ramping up here, OCI architecture, culture and ownership are very similar to amzn.

      What’s bad about the architecture and ownership at Amazon?
