    Great for people who are focused on making sales, regardless on wether the customer needs it.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Sydney

    ProsSome good technology acquisitions, although its not easy to see if or how they will be integrated.

    ConsVery focused on the Database. Culturally finds it difficult to accept that the sales process is very different form Database and addons, to most of what they have acquired in the middleware or application tiers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more focused on your people instead of quarterly results. Need to understand the clients' business needs instead of trying to maximise license revenue, or using the "license police".

    Its a good company to work, loads of talented people.

    Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsGreat Work Life Balance.
    Lots of talented people work here, people from IIT to regional private colleges the best talents come here.
    You will work as a part of global team, most teams spread across the world and all the development centers have equal value.
    Good learning opportunity.
    Best place to learn Oracle from Oracle.

    ConsNo hikes, stagnant salary.
    People only talk about codes, projects even in lunches, lifts.
    Almost no onsite opportunity since its a product company and all the development centers have equal value.If you are part of a team that is completely spread across the globe then you may visit some countries.
    Since its a global company and teams spread across various time zones one can expect a call any time from any where in the world.
    Discrimination in salary based on colleges. For example an IITan gets roughly 12 lpa at the time of joining where as the numbers are 9 lpa & 6-7.5 lpa for an NITan and other lower tier college grad.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider hikes.
    Dont discriminate new joinees based on their college. Because everyone passed the same selection procedure whether its at IIT or at any private college.

    FANTASTIC COMPANY

    User Experience Developer V (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

    ProsLike anywhere else, your milage may vary depending on team, but overall I have found Oracle to be a fantastic company to work for. Lots of flexibility and the politics are not too bad compared to many other big companies.

    - unlimited sick leave is a blessing
    - compensation is above average

    Cons- limited professional development opportunities
    - budgets for training and conferences is limited
    - vague / unclear annual review process
    - bonus structure is sketchy at best

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more transparency on how we are being evaluated and some solid rewards for work well done would be a welcome change. My management has been VERY good and I don't have much to complain about except that I would like to know more about the direction of the company and our projects from time to time.
