Oracle Corp. Reviews
What is it like working at Oracle Corp.?
"Mixed Bag Experience Nice to Start Your Carrier."
Project Leader, IT:
Pros: Works with Newest Technologies. The Oracle US has awesome workculture and exposure to Technology Group.
Cons: In India One can maintain Good Worklife Balance by being shrewed which is considered negative aspect in India. Oracle India is basically Outsourcing and only People who are willing to work 24/7 get good work and Ownership. Others are given substandard work or cleanup work.
"Solid Company, Good Benefits, Opportunity To Excel."

Pros: Corporate culture, work flexibility, Job Security, Good learning.
Cons: Absolutely ZERO hike for 3-5 years.. Very minimal 10-15k bonus in 3-5 years.
"Challenging job; company very tightly controlled."
Senior Principal Engineer:
Pros: Challenging work. Many very sharp colleagues to work with.
Cons: Oracle is stingy about supplying employees the tools they need to do their job. For example, even for *engineers*, it only provides mid-range Windows laptops, whereas in our part of the company we need Unix-based, higher-end computers. Many of us end up spending $2500 out of our own pockets to supply the "tools" we need to do our jobs. The other thing I dislike is that the company operates very "top-down" -- decisions are made on top, pushed down, and must be accepted without question. No reasons are given for the decisions, and no appeals are tolerated. There is no transparency; it feels like upper management is saying "we're the parents and you are the children, *that's* why; we don't need to explain our decisions". I'd expect that in the military, but not in a corporation.
Information Technology (IT) Consultant:
Pros: Flexibility..work from home.
Cons: No growth..learning and hikes.
Principal Software Engineer:
Pros: Flexible hours. Telecommuting. Challenging work.
Cons: Highly autocratic, top-down management. Extremely bureaucratic. Extremely cumbersome development processes. Constant change in priorities.
