Ok place to work with good benefits but also very demanding. Being a very big international corporate it looks very good in your resume, so definitely worth working for them.

Good for short-term plans and moving fast onto something else

The "theory" of the job itself sounded fulfilling, challenging, great salary, great culture etc... in practicality, it's nothing but. -You start with a reasonable salary but no pay rises or bonuses unless you change jobs. -No promotion plans or "here's how to". If you want a promotion, you apply for a different role. - Maternity leave is one of the worst in the market, with no flexibility on working hours on the return. -Self-service/ do it yourself culture - you have a problem, you fix it "here's the 50 page manual on how to do it".-Poor management with no former training, education or relevant/current skills. They are purely administrators.-0 communication. Whole teams "vanish", people "disappear", jobs change without warning, internal services get outsourced to big corporations... nobody gets informed, warned or communicated.


Competitive Salary. Good for young ambitious people who want that step into the corporate world.


Self-service culture, you are on your own with little to no support. No pay rises or bonuses, no promotions, benefits come out of your pocket... not ideal for the long stay.

Laid back place to work

Good place to work, however, minimal opportunities to progress. The salary is a little below industry standard, and increases can be quite difficult to obtain.

US Centric. Does not pay well. Overly beuracratic. Everyone after what knowledge you have but not willing to share what they have. Management pretty clueless

Great Work Place

Working in an open plan office. Great team and a great mix of languages spoken. 1 hour pause for lunch. Great health package. Salary above average. There is always office parties for holidays and the team often get together for lunch.

Good company

Flexible. You can take what shifts you want. Seems to be plenty of work available. You can work close to home or further away. Weekly pay is really handy. Self employed so u need to be registered and pay own tax

Enjoyable place to work

Plenty of challenging projects flexible working and industry leading technology and tools are always used. Deadlines are sometimes a challenge but you get the support to get the job done

Great company to work for

Worked at Oracle for just under 6 years and they were the best years of my career! A company constantly improving its processes. A company where the word diversity is not just a corporate buzz word. Learnt many things and worked with the best in the industry.


Everyone wants to help, no hot potato culture

It can be a tough environment, but to the pros outweighed the cons for me. Nothing else to add other than the need to fight for your compensation on a regular basis as the comp team made quite a few mistakes in my experience

Go in with eyes open

The company treats employees very, very well and it's possible to settle down, do what your boss says and have a good life. If you prefer to engage with a team, understand customer requirements and generally be part of anything remotely Agile, then look elsewhere. Or at least be very, very careful to find out what your manager's style is before accepting an offer.


Pay, work-life balance, canteens, training


X style management, shifting priorities

Productive and excellent workplace

I worked for Oracle over 7 years and was able to establish and grow an excellent career. I worked in 2 individual roles and then moved to managing teams leaving the business as a director. You make your own career and the opportunities are there.

Don't expect a pay rise

Bargain hard at the start. you won't get another pay rise unless you get a promotion. Managers are just administrators - dont expect support from them unless it suits them to do so.

Autonomous working

Great products, poor strategy, management is ok. Excellent work life balance, strong package, excellent training. If you are a self starter and like working on your own this is perfect

Buy companies and let people fail

Got approached by Oracle for a 'Great Role' it was a revolving door with team members leaving every two months and new ones coming in to fail with lack of support for good people.
