Hasta La Vista BEA

May 5, 2008

Picture 5

The Oracle acquisition of BEA is now complete and while the result may be good for BEA in the long run, I can’t help but be a little sad. As a former BEA employee I can testify that it was a great place to work even though it had its share of bozo managers.

Some of the remaining BEA folks in San Jose held a mini wake for the company. As for me, I’ll just take my $19.38 a share. A little richer but a lot sadder.
