Big company, moves slowly
Focus is 100% on shareholder value. No loyalty to employees
Directors don't direct they just carry out plans from executives.
Very little incentive in the lower ranks to exceed expectations.
No training unless its to help management
it's a job
company shows no loyalty or value in its employees.
Nice company to work with. Good work life balance. However, sometimes opportunities to grow may be limited. Have enjoyed my work in Oracle. However, looking for new challenges outside Oracle preferably in smaller companies may be better way to grow up in career.
Legacy Company that only cares about the bottom-line. Constant restructuring for cloud means the best people aren't selected for the best jobs. Very political and the Tech Software group gets all the power
being part of a global team (my manger is indian living in the us, 2 colleagues from the czech repulic and another two from india) was challenging in the beggining but became fun because we all working around the clock to serve cloud customers. overall was a good company for my experience
Great sales organization with a very dynamic mindset to stay relevant to customer requirements. High adaptability is a secret to success at Oracle. It's possible to find pockets of innovation & start up culture across sales to build valuable experience & grow your network.
Oracle is a great place work with good benefits, salary, commission structure with vacation package etc. They are a bit late to the cloud/ saas and trying to catch up with leaders like Salesforce, AWS etc.
They took me for a job at their customer place, when their project is over, they were unable to place me in any other projects as they have a very less QA presence in toronto and i have to quit and search for another job, it was a very terrible moment and i had a big stress during that time. They recruited me from a different country where i was going safe and secure. I don't recommend oracle to any one.
Oracle is a big company, so learning and developing here is self-driven. On the sales engineering side you are solving some great problems and have some good tools at your disposal to do so with. Definitely have to watch out for work-life balance as it can demand a lot of time. You also have to do a lot of self-promotion and managing upwards. Management can be a toss-up (some are really good and others not so - true of most places)
Interesting Problems to solve, Bonuses are usually good, pay is reasonable
Overall, a good place for Work Life balance, good colleagues, but career advancement/growth is lacking, no bonus structures. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning new technologies and providing solutions to clients. The hardest part of the job is to establish a process that works, when working on client solutions or seeking answers to questions.
Balance, opportunities to research. Freedom, quality of management, life, Good quality of work. MNC culture, no partiality but merit driven. Work life balance, Good HR policies. No nonsense or excessive politics.
