Account excecutive (Current Employee) –  CaribbeanJanuary 15, 2019
Oracle is not an organization for those people who do not resist sales pressure and speed. It is a company that demands a lot, but at the same time it rewards you. It is an unstable company, like all multinationals, since your position depends on your attainment. it is a company that is always innovating, therefore it is important to study a lot to be up to date,or you can fall behind. It is a very competitive and aggressive world not only externally but internally as well.
Pros
Benefits, Learning, carreer, experience
Cons
inestablity, quality of life, competence

Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Broomfield, COJanuary 11, 2019
Hard to understand the lack of promotions, cost of living increases or raises when executives are still gaining massive bonuses. Veterans opportunities, but, don't get your hopes up for working there if you are not in the top of your class and from a prestigious university. They will work hard to get you in the door, once you are in, layoffs are real, so are pay freezes, hiring freezes and department restructuring. Hard place to try and retire, unless you own the company.
Pros
A-Typical Corporate Software Development
Cons
Working for 'the man'

Caustic Work Environment in Oracle Support
Support Director, Utilities Software Support (Former Employee) –  Bridgewater, NJJanuary 23, 2019
Over the last few years Oracle Support has been about pushing buttons to comply with KPIs rather than really support customers. The EVP cares only about the bottom line. NO ONE cares about the Oracle Support Employees. It is ALL about revenue.
Pros
Unlimited vacation and sick time
Cons
stress, focus on KPIs rather than suppoting ALL Customers, EVP who cares about NO ONE but his bottom line

Great entry level job
Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Columbia, MDJanuary 5, 2019
Oracle in Columbia Maryland is a great entry level job. The hours are fine and there is a strong introduction to the IT world. The benefits are great and the working environment is not bad either. The only downfall is upper management not caring about the product or the support offered. Many bad decisions made that negatively effect employees ability to support and the support the customer receives. Very little to no room to grow in any meaningful way.

Great first job, hit or miss with managers
Sales Development Representative (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAJanuary 3, 2019
If you can get in the door, do well at your position for at least a year and then start thinking about where you'd like to transition within the company (if that's your goal). They are fairly good about hiring from within and/or promoting to another level. If you get a bad manager or team, there is a structure in place to try and switch via speaking with HR. Great culture. Managers not micromanaging or watching your every move as long as you're getting your work done and excelling in the position.
Pros
pay, benefits, training, company name on resume, nice offices with cafeterias/kitchens/games
Cons
many managers care about their own bottom-line not your best interest

Productive environment - sales goal focused
Regional Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 23, 2019
In most cases sales goals and numbers are key, not that way with all of Oracle. Some good managers, some bad. Some managers with good interview skills to get the role, they just do not have the skills to perform well in the role. Several managers have great ideas on what needs to be done without any idea on how to get it done.
Pros
simi-collaborative enviroment, great place to work
Cons
no work from home options

Government Affairs Intern (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 14, 2019
The culture in Oracle was fantastic for being an intern who was new to the company culture. I was given important work to do and was never afraid to ask important questions. All employees I worked with were very serious about their jobs and the projects they were working on with others.

Oracle Customer Support ACS
Principal Advanced Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  home office Mount Aukum CADecember 19, 2018
Oracle was a good company, provided a job with salary PLUS overtime compensation.

I worked in the Oracle Advanced Customer Support division, doing direct support for Oracle customers, mostly remote but also onsite at customer sites.

Typical work would be solving performance or other problems for Oracle customers, databases up to and including release 12.2c, Goldengate, TDE encryption, Exadata included.

At times customers would have a full new implementation including data modeling and DDL/DML creation.

Middle Management Ruins Efficiency
Shipping/GIS Team Member (Former Employee) –  Redwood City, CADecember 11, 2018
Typical work day consisted of reformatting laptops and palleting items for domestic and international shipping.

Attention to detail was key as you are working with product serial numbers frequently, and need to ensure international addresses are correct before shipping anything.

The most challenging part of this job was repeating each process to every manager as they asked the same questions as the manager under them, and under them, and so on.

A dichotomy of employment
Technical Support Analysist (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UTDecember 9, 2018
I worked on a new project, while I was with the company. The transition for the newly acquired company was still on going, while I was there.
There were conflicts between how Oracle and the previous company performed their operations. As such, these conflicts caused frustration, confusion, and disarray in expectations, performance of duties, and understanding the goals being put forward.
I know that my experience is different than what other have had, but at the time, it was a mix of being a great environment, with the frustration that comes with an overly agitated group of employees and managers.

Great people, but little chance for advancement
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXFebruary 4, 2019

Pros
Great people, good managers, great healthcare
Cons
compensation, stagnant wage growth, no career path, little to no chance of advancement

Working for oracle as cloud solutions architect
Cloud Solutions Architect (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 13, 2019
I had a good experience working for Oracle as a cloud solutions architect. I found the technology stack robust and scalable. The solutions we had for SaaS and PaaS and IaaS were excellent and made us competitive in the marketplace. Management made good decisions. I recommend working for Oracle.
Pros

Challenging Sales Environment
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 11, 2018
Oracle's sales group has a well-earned reputation as a work-hard, play-hard environment. It's intense and there is a huge spectrum of first-line managers, the best to the worst. Your territory can make or break you, but you have options to move around the company. One career-planning note: your salary does not keep pace with your value in the market.
Pros
Opportunities for advancement
Cons
high pressure environment

Great first out-of-college job to learn the corporate world
Technology Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 3, 2018
The job is great for college graduates to learn how the corporate world works, but things are very disorganized and there are unrealistic expectations set for sales representatives after the first promotion. Constant changes (I've had 7 different "direct report" managers in 14 months, and turnover is very high.
Pros
On the lake, decent base salary, youthful office
Cons
Unrealistic quota, micro-management, no "work from home" days, very few PTO days

Typical Day
BDC Representative (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 25, 2018
A typical day of works is calling or emailing through you contact list in an effort to book a meeting. Some managers organize your tasks more than others and prefer to organize things such as team call blitzing. During the calls, you try to learn from customers as well as educate them on how Oracle can help them. The main function of this role is to drive interests to the sales team and start relationships with new clients. Overall, its enjoyable and you get to talk to a lot of new people.
Pros
Fun work environment, nice bonuses
Cons
Base pay does not match geographical cost of living

Great place to work for especially when able to work remote... however, job security is another thing
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 26, 2018
Was with Oracle for quite some time and was able to work from home, so if you are able to manage your - work/life balance it is really beneficial. I had a great Manager and team, but once my manager left, my job was in jeopardy and was laid off. HR and upper management was not able to assist in securing another position.
Pros
Work from home, fun people to work with
Cons
Long hours, lay offs

Good knowledge environment but management is red tape
Designation - Senior Principal Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Colorado Springs, CONovember 24, 2018
I would say Oracle has good environment where we get to learn a lot digging deeper into the product. But the management does not seem to have the priority make the job simpler. They working day and night to complicate your job. Keep measuring against metrics which is complicates the attitude and work life of the engineer. Hope we get a leader that will see this comment and ask his reportees to look at ways to simplify work.
Pros
Knowledge
Cons
Management is not innovative to simplify work.
