Huge learning opportunities, not employee career friendly!

Principal Engineer (Current Employee)
Bridgewater, NJ (US)

I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

Pros. Learning opportunities
. Overtime pay for non-exempt positions
. Work life balance is good
. Benefits package are good

Cons. Bureaucratic management, not easy to change careers
. Promotion/Increments are very bad and appraisal process is discouraging
. Cost cutting has reached epic proportion resulting is no employee friendly programs
. Too many customer management centric roles and not enough technical resources to actually solve issue

Advice to Senior Management. There are multiple redundant customer management programs and roles which causes less technical roles. This results in actual problem resolving more challenging and frustrating to customer.
. Most employees work in telecommute mode. Which means there not much face to face interaction. Causing least team building and peer supportive environment

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Its Okay

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Warren, NJ (US)

I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe compensation provided by the company is good compared to other companies with the same profile. Work life balance is good if you are onsite (US) because of the current client flexibility.

ConsNo career growth is near future. company is loosing on the consulting projects because of very unrealistic margin expectations. no appraisal, forget salary hike even performance is not rated.

Challenging environment

Technology Sales Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsRecognizable Brand. Good place to start out, but not long term.

ConsSalaries don't change - wherever you come in at is where you'll be at 5 years later. High quota's, heavy quota overassignment means management isn't in the same boat as it's employees. Unfortunately, management looks for creative way not to pay reps (must sell x % of y! or accelerators don't kick in). Very high turnover

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your people
