"It was a wonderful company where I could have the right balance between my personal and professional lives. I was given complete freedom in pursuing my own design and get valuable feedback from the seniors and peers. I would love to work here anytime."

"I've worked for Oracle since 1998. With the most recent acquisition, it will have about 4X the number of employees that it did when I started. It has become a very big company and much of the old nimbleness that was common with dotcoms is gone. Also, management is borderline-religious when it comes to cost controls. The net effect is that it often takes months if not years to get projects completed. On the other hand, the benefits are AMAZING. The health plan would be considered CEO-caliber."

"It's a great place to cut your teeth, but there's little to no room for advancement without leaving the company and coming back. Also, if a tool you need to do your job isn't on the approved list, you aren't getting it. Also, there's a ton of bureaucracy causing approvals for anything to take months."

"Worked here for 3 years. Awesome work experience with manager and co workers. Exposure to various technologies and flexible work hours are a plus. Bonus and salary were up to the mark. Suitable leave structure and vacation plans. Can learn new work every day. You can shift to other technology of your own interest whenever required. Work life balance can be achieved and you get the work satisfaction at the same-time. Encouragement from peers was good."

"I've worked 17 years for Oracle consulting. Working for Oracle has lost its appeal since the company became super frugal about everything including training, raises, promotions, office supplies, equipment... just about everything. The company is scrounging every penny from everywhere."

"I've worked for Oracle since 2009. The company has been very great for me at the beginning, despite the fact that I have created international success cases and get award from important customers, the recognition was not good enough as I expected from the company."

"Overall, Oracle is very good place to work. For my first job in the Technology industry, the training and sales resources were very helpful and informational. The negative, it is a very cannibalistic enviornment for sales. In the last year alone, they have nearly doubled the sales force in most product pillars and shrunk all account patches. Because of the wide assortment of products that Oracle provides, there are too many oracle reps calling into the same accounts and upset our customers."

"Oracle is a good company however the timing of my employment was impacted by numerous acquisitions which resulted in constant turnover of staff. There is also a hidden network of powerful people within the company that can help or hurt you depending on who you know as with most companies."
