Does Oracle offer relocation assistance?

Pros

You'll meet great colleagues there, a really good bunch. Tied together by the same semi-awful experience working at Oracle Digital in Dublin. The new office is quite a stunner. Great facilities, light, enough space, clean, eco-friendly, so-so canteen. You'll learn outbound prospecting with little to none supporting tools. Oracle still has a good reputation for producing strong sales people in the world. So your tenure here will look good on your CV. Just not within Ireland, everyone knows Oracle. If you want to progress, just stay with the company. Eventually you'll be promoted. Best work-life balance of any job out there.

Cons

The lies, the micro- and senior management, compensation/bonus, the coaching/training Oracle tell you quite a story of how they work, how you can work, about compensation and bonuses. Take it with a grain of salt and be very, very critical. When they offer you a relocation package make sure to very closely read the terms. If you stay less than two years, you might end up with a couple of grand in debt and given the fluctuation of people running back out of Oracle, that's a real possibility for you. You will be micro-managed, if you're lucky you get the odd more lenient manager. Generally, (senior) management doesn't care about your opinion, better play game. Many managers have no management experience and shouldn't be handling people. Leads to big frustrations and high fluctuation within Oracle Digital. Motivation consequently is low, people share the bad vibes. Depending on your territory and market, you'll barely see a bonus, unless you start sandbagging, making deals etc. Just grow the pipeline. You'll have almost no helpful tool to do your job, which is mostly cold calling. No active marketing in Europe means no inbound leads. Coaching and training is a big one in Oracle. But they fail to do so. Coaching team is not really generating real value, training will not prepare you for C-level interactions. Poor experience overall.

Advice to Management

Take your people seriously. There are smart, hard working employees around. Listen to them. Stop the micromanagement and be critical of yourself as well. So many freeloaders on all levels. Stop the lies. Work on marketing so this becomes business development/sales and not a call-center with degree holders.

When they offer you a relocation package make sure to very closely read the terms.

Does Oracle offer employee discounts?

Pros

Flexibility to work from home.

Cons

Oracle support renewals / customer success has been in a downward spiral for years. They have not given raises in over 5 years and have laid off 30% of the organization as they 'restructured' to a digital renewal center. People are leaving left and right for positions with Cisco, Google, Workday and other companies that actually fairly pay their employees. It has been a very hard thing to observe considering it used to be a great place to work. ESPP is only a 5% discount as well.

Advice to Management

Return to the basics. Pay employees fairly. The disproportion of salaries of people in the same job role can be $100K difference. Give annual raises. Give us a 15% discount on ESPP.

ESPP is only a 5% discount as well.
