Great work-life-balance, but overall focus and strategy is haphazard
Development Manager (Current Employee) – Burlington, MA – May 16, 2016
Oracle is one of the few companies that supports work-from-home, which makes this company exceptional from a work-life-balance perspective. However, Oracle is also a very large company, and finding opportunities for promotion is hard.
Management tries to communicate direction and strategy, but it does feel somewhat haphazard. While focus on cloud is constant there are many, many "urgent" communications from upper management to engineering that seem to take over the direction of the company and create confusion lower in the ranks.
That said, Oracle is solid company with good technology and products that customers genuinely like.
Benefits are excellent, work-from-home
Promotions are rare and lately salary increases are few and far between
