Oracle

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
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

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.

Pros

Everyone wants to help, no hot potato culture

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.

Pros

Pay, work-life balance, canteens, training

Cons

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.

Productive and Fun Work Place

Oracle is of the best Software Company in the World.However, No Annual Salary increment policy. So, Always join it on the Maximum salary. Also, Annual Benefit system is good. Which gives some Extra Motivation for work.

Pros

At-least, the HR staff is Nice. No comments for the Management ... lol

Cons

Always facing the Projects work load ...

Boring and lack of growth potential

The workplace culture is fairly relaxed and flexible. Work from home supported. Ample opportunity to learn. Diverse set of clients and technologies. Poor in terms of opportunity to grow.

Software Giant - Generally good

Lots of support, good technical knowledge and training. Lots of opportunities for growth, but one has to seek them out, all via self serve (even your long service awards) Big brand, however there is some animosity with the customer base in some instances. Very process orientated. Approval process can be a test of character. Overall a good place to be,

Self service Organisation

Left to your own devices and everything is your own responsibility. Everything from IT to training is at your own resolution. Its quite a step to get used too.

Great, Fun, driven place to work

Fantastic place to work. All clients were brilliant, kind and knowledgeable about the product which ensured training and service were received quickly and with the upmost professionalism. Constant support was available for all jobs and anything was brought to solution quickly and efficiently. It is a great place to work and strive to improve. The only issue is being away from home constantly 5 days a week.
