Sounds like a place I would not want to work. No yearly increases, just a review. Interesting. What a way to reward your hard working Oracle Analysts who are the 1st line on the floor. I worked there when it was Micros, and they gave small tiny increases. I left when they stopped the OT. in 2011, earned 7k more than my salary with OT. I worked there 2 years. It was my first Help Desk job out of college. I received a $100 on the spot bonus for coming to work during a major snowstorm, many people called out. Owner thanked us, and provided pizza that day. Only time I received a bonus from Micros. Sounds like things are worse now with no increases.

Unfortunately, recruitment at Oracle is sorely lacking in truthful information. When you are hired (at least where I was) I was told 30% bonus and even in the best of times it just didn't materialize despite years of exceed ratings. At the end of the day Oracle pays poorly without some sort of bonus and they don't tell you the real truth on the way in and you just get caught up in the whole dog eat dog Oracle culture. My advice try a company that doesn't just treat it's employees like cattle and send them to the slaughter.

Yes, I have been working at Oracle for over two years and there are no raises. The company encourages you to leave and come back to get a raise

Report answer

Bonuses (at least in Consulting) stopped shortly after President #44 took office and never really returned to anything substantial. Annual raises are not something Oracle does at all. Annual reviews are written by the candidates themselves because Managers don't even know their reports. If you are looking for a fun place Oracle is no place to be. If you just want to get something on your resume as many employees do it works.

Never heard the word “bonus”. Never heard of anyone receiving a bonus.

Report answer

I haven't worked there long enough to know, however, if you meet quota, you get bonuses and if you make it 6 months and a year in the program you do get bonuses.
