Overall Reviews at Oracle

Senior Database Administrator | Austin, TX | Feb 26, 2020
A lot of future interesting projects
A lot of future interesting projects Very slow to get to the point when we can start working on those projects. and not very well compensated for the job we do.
Service Transition Manager | St. Louis, MO | Dec 26, 2019
Focused, energetic organization
Oracle provides a challenging workplace that offers many opportunities to grow and advance. Annual re-organization keeps administration from becoming more static.
Director | Reston, VA | Dec 23, 2019
Oracle is a very complicated place to work
Getting a deal completed is next to impossible. Each acquisition introduces complexity. They have acquired 150+ companies and licensing of their products is difficult.

No raises shrinking benefits
If you like working For a place that has no raises receiving benefits and absolutely no job security Oracle is the place for you. Continuous rolling layoffs with absolutely no chance for advancement. The best thing that happened to me is when I got RIF’d I did like my immediate manager quite a bit he was a very good guy but he got caught up in it too and he’s probably better off as well.

Exellent workplace environment
There aren't enough great words that can go with how good it is to work for Oracle. There are many perks. Even s a contractor you don't feel like one. You have access to all online capabilities including educational training, perks, facility access, invitation to all company wide events. You never feel left out of anything.
Senior Security Consultant | Remote | Apr 2, 2020
Nothing to report
Oracle has great set of products, and continues to strive. The leadership would rather have more partners than direct reports which causes problems with the services group. There needs to be a balance
Vice President of Sales | New York, NY | Jan 20, 2020
Oracle is always evolving
Oracle is several different companies touching all countries and industries. If you can dream it, you can find it at Oracle. The expectations are very high and the rewards can be very high, however there is very little toleration for non-producers.

Questions And Answers about Oracle

Is it really true that there are no yearly bonuses or raises?
Asked Mar 30, 2017
I work in support and have gotten an increase most years. The trade off in personal time/stress carried is high. Most on my team don’t get raises but then they don’t carry the load I do either.
Answered Oct 11, 2019
In case people are still interested, it has just been announced, no payrises/bonuses this year either... mine is 12th year running despite good reviews.. so agree with others, work is interesting but do not expect financial compensation, and also true that easiest way to get promotion or pay rise is to leave and come back. I reviewed all feedback on this chain and all fair and honest. When there are pay rises, it is very secretive not consistent across departments and really down to how much your manager fights your corner.

How often do raises occur at Oracle?
Asked Feb 3, 2018
Support or not, Oracle has a no raise policy. I have held multiple positions with no increase in pay even after a promotion. The same can be said for others that have worked in completely different areas of the company.
Answered Nov 8, 2019
Rarely in support but they are given to exceptional performers. The question is do you want that raise given what you’ll have to do to receive one. There are no regular cost of living increases.

How would you describe the pace of work at Oracle?
Asked Jan 9, 2018
Brutal and unrelenting. On my team it’s not unusual to handle 400-600 issues yearly, many of them complex and time consuming.
Answered Oct 11, 2019

How do you feel about going to work each day at Oracle?
Asked May 1, 2017
Even though I’m planning my exit due to unrelenting stress and the awful cube environment, I feel I’m fairly compensated with fantastic benefits so I go to work with a positive feeling.

If you were in charge, what would you do to make Oracle a better place to work?
Asked Oct 9, 2017
Either allow work from home or fix the office cubes. Support engineers packed next to each other in tiny open cubes who are often on conference calls doesn’t allow for concentration or productivity.
Answered Oct 11, 2019
Create clear goals that can be followed Create teams that work together toward a goal Don't have different teams doing the same task Give employees clear incentives and praise/bonuses/raises Treat the employees respectfully
