Received a verbal offer 2 Fridays ago from Oracle NetSuite only to have the hiring manager the next Monday say they entered a hiring freeze over the weekend. They said they expect the freeze to end at the new fiscal year in June. Anyone in Oracle have any idea if thats likely to happen or just to keep me on the line?

You should keep interviewing until you start working.

I don’t work for Oracle. But until you have a job offer in writing, don’t count on having a job.

Will definitely keep looking till its in writing. Thanks!

I would keep looking in the meantime. New fiscal kicks off Wednesday so you’ll know pretty quick but don’t let that hold you back from interviewing

Yes, that happens at Q4. Hiring freeze will end in June

Thanks for the info. Assuming this is the reason why its a September start date?

Keep looking, but that said everyone at OCI is waiting for June 1st so that next year's hiring budget gets unlocked

Typical. Took me 11 months to get hired.

Jeeze. From the start of interviews to the written offer??

I’m in a similar situation with Oracle Netsuite. Hiring manager telling me they want me but written offer delayed. Have you heard anything recently?

Currently in the US but interviewing for a UK-based firm and role. The comp level they are throwing around is £250k TC. Is this reasonable for a Director-level role with 12 YOE?

My comparator would be wait 18-24mo to become a consulting partner - in the US that starts at $450k/£325k.

For the purposes of this question, assume I’m optimizing for initial comp, not long term potential, and not livability, Intl experience, WLB, CoL etc.

Thanks!

Any interview tips for Project Manager roles in software development? I was moved to this role about 2 years ago and soon looking to jump to another company, but unsure of what to focus on talking about. I’ve tested the waters and the feedback from one interviewer who was generous enough to provide it was that I made myself sound like a technologist rather than a PM because I was too focused on the product and it’s details instead of the project management details.

Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
