Oracle’s legacy is so expansive that it underpins nearly all of the internet services we take for granted today. But we’re not interested in looking back—we’re always working on the next big thing.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed my time at Oracle. I worked with some great people across many lines of business and had lots of opportunities to cross collaborate.

    Great private health fund cover for the family and free parking.

    Cons

    There's so much politics and hard to advance your career if you didn't have the right manager to support you.

    Preference seemed to be to hire from the outside rather than promote from within.

    No pay reviews so you need to negotiate well at the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Provide pay reviews and career paths.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    While they say the initial interview question should only take a few hours they are actually looking for hundreds of lines of code and extremely detailed testing. Given the extensive initial coding problem I'd recommend avoiding this time sink unless you really want to work for a big name like Oracle.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you to spend multiple days working on a problem saying you can code it how you like but later on it become apparent obvious checklist that you may or may not meet.   Answer Question
