Interesting place to work at
Data Scientist (Current Employee) –  Redwood City, CAApril 26, 2017
Variety of backgrounds among colleagues keep things churning with new ideas and perspectives. Although stereo-typically considered a big old boring company, it's definitely taken a turn for the better.

Implementation Consultant II (Current Employee) –  Solon, OHApril 26, 2017
After being acquired by Oracle, many in our company were optimistic. Working for one of the largest IT companies in the world couldn't be all that bad. We thought we would gain tons of new clients. Unfortunately, after 3 years, new client prospects seemed to dry up, as did our work load.

Its cannibalistic.
Oracle Sales AE (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 25, 2017
If you want your deals constantly being taken away from you by other departments, this is a great job. the only place to be would be joining the cloud team or the DB side. No point in the other departments.

Great training program. Great people you will be working alongside. A lot of room for growth. Everything takes time. You will not receive a promotion overnight.

MB Services Sales Representative I (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COApril 24, 2017
Oracle has lots of layoffs and acquisitions but a great company to work for when there is Job security. I learned a lot about sales and the tech industry while working for Oracle.

I was laid off after an acquisition and my position was outsourced

Principal Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee) –  Redwood Shores, CAApril 24, 2017
Very little raise, very little bonus and RSU. The company simply doesn't care that much about the employees. They don't care people leave; they don't care people get under paid.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
compensation is not on par with the market

Oracle is a great company to work for. The sales culture is amazing and management is great! The most enjoyable part of the job is having autonomy to get your work done.

No rewards for success and no ability to grow
Hardware Engineering Lead (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAApril 19, 2017
Oracle does not provide growth opportunities and often rewards success with demotions and/or layoffs. As the company transitions towards a cloud focus, these could just be growing pains, but I would not recommend being part of them right now.
There are no bonuses and no raises.
Pros
Easy hours
Cons
No growth opportunities.

A blip in the corporate machine
Program Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAApril 18, 2017
Compensation is not competitive, and career advancement opportunities and raises are hard to come by. You'll have to apply for another job on another team entirely. Typical corporate work structure. Management and leadership is out of touch. Their only priority is proving profitability to shareholders.
Pros
Work-life balance
Cons
Compensation, career advancement, culture

Why did they hire me?
Technology Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAApril 18, 2017
I was hired as a Technology Sales Manager, and quickly realized I had no viable territory, and that the vast majority of the other sales people on my team were not meeting their quota. I have no idea why they hired me, and I left.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Hated working remotely, no client interest in what I was selling

Average Company
Principal Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COApril 17, 2017
Oracle is okay if you don't care if you are rewarded for doing an exceptional job. Oracle bought Sun Microsystems supposedly for their hardware and systems expertise. Then, they fired all the Sun Sales People. No wonder the remaining Oracle Sales force couldn't sell hardware.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
No raises for years on end.........no recognition of any kind

Account Manager - Enterprise Growth Accounts (Former Employee) –  Burlington, MAApril 14, 2017
Can seemingly get lost in the mix sometimes, but overall, it's a great company with great opportunity and great benefits. Only downfall is that it sometimes can feel like a lottery with how territories are cut up.
