    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I joined Oracle as part of an acquisition and really never expected to enjoy such a huge company, but I'm finding it a great place to work. The work is rewarding and challenging, and the culture is super supportive. It's a great place for women and I see a good gender balance across my org. Work/life balance is excellent, benefits are superb and there is a fantastic level of care provided to employees.

    Cons

    Some processes can be heavy-handed and this can slow progress. Pay scales are excellent, but once on a pay grade, rises are fairly rare. Promotions are more likely to come via re-orgs. Gender balance is good, but more work could be put into diversity in other areas.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Career Development opportunities - Lots of sales training is offered - You work with very well experienced colleagues who you can learn a lot from - The company is focusing more on Diversity & Inclusion as well as on Volunteering opportunities (though I haven't seen an increase in D&I colleagues yet?) - The commission. Oracle has very fruitful commission schemes that I haven't seen at other Corporate companies. Hence, if you are very driven to close and want to make a lot of money, Oracle is definitely the place to be in Sales - Good benefit scheme (private insurance, dental insurance, health and wealth schemes) - Working from home

    Cons

    - Not much space for creativity & corporate messaging is encouraged when reaching out to prospects - Internal processes are a nightmare (although you can get support here when you know the right people) - Very corporate company. There is absolutely no focus on building team spirit, have fun/engaging activities across the Group. Everyone is just working for themselves and that's all - No Culture and Values (internally speaking) - Internal transfers: you do not get paid fairly when progressing internally vs. external candidates who come in

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Superbly talented and clever people to work with, and ability to be at the cutting edge of technology.

    Cons

    American firm, underlying expectation that everyone will work hard for them can lead to stress through overwork. Very self service culture, where you need to make your own decisions and carve out your own career - which if you have the ability to do this is a plus, but if not you probably won't grow.
