'My dream job at Oracle left me homeless!' – A techie's relocation horror tale

Re: Oracle treating employees badly?

Later I heard that at trade shows Oracle staff were blackening my name and telling people not to hire me. Fortunately the publicity did my career no end of good and I ended up as a very well paid consultant

Many years ago, the department I worked for quit en masse. I'm sure you can imagine how pleasant it had been working there.

A contracting company came in to take over the workload. And that was all fine.

Some years later, I was offered a job at a company that had evolved from that contracting company (via MBO). They told me - just before I left - that a major reason for wanting me was that my former boss (at the first company above) had slagged me off so much, I must be worth talking to...
