Oracle Corp. Reviews

Q: What is it like working at Oracle Corp.?

Customer Success Manager in Denver:
"No pay raises."
Great benefits but without raises.

Principal Software Engineer in Boston:
"Stay away."
Pros: Flexible hours. Telecommuting. Challenging work.
Cons: Highly autocratic, top-down management. Extremely bureaucratic. Extremely cumbersome development processes. Constant change in priorities.

Senior Principal Engineer in Santa Clara:
"Challenging job; company very tightly controlled."
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) Director in Denver:
"Solid Company, Good Benefits, Opportunity To Excel."
Pros: Lots of flexibility to drive your own career forward.
Cons: Big company culture.
