Excellent working On Managed Sites
Oracle Advance On-Site Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  London7 August 2018
Work was busy and challenging but very enjoyable.

Working in a Large Datacenter I gained variety of experience, experience from Installing and configuring new servers to server decommissioning and server consolidation. Learned about cabling from patching end right upto connecting it to the server. Learnt about max power threshold in cabinets and cooling.

Working in a large datacenter we had good support from our manager and business groups.

Work Culture in a large datacenter is amazing we all worked as a team and made working thoroughly enjoyable. We built an excellent rapport with one another with the team as well with the customer.
Pros
Good training and technical backup
Cons
payrise and bonuses are non-existence

Hard working where you will be rewarded.
Senior Technical Support Consultant (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire2 July 2018
Work day for a support engineer will consist of sorting your emails and contacting your customers where you will need to prioritize your responsibilities for the day ahead, so your not clashing with your meeting.

Management is focused on customer satisfaction and KPI's to be met regularly, this will be a weekly meeting for this.

Culture is office or home based work where you need to bring an effective team together to work on the most complex issues and finding out who is your best point of contact for the quickest resolution.

The hardest part of the job is is writing the Knowledge so that others can learn from your experience, Oracle is focused on allowing the customers transparency on many issues to avoid the need for engineers visits.

The most enjoyable part is the travel and the training new engineers and learning new experiences while working in diverse cultures across the globe.
Pros
Large company where you can go far if you put the effort in.
Cons
Long hours and no pay rises, you need to drive your career

Pretty toxic management styles
Financial Services Account Director (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London26 June 2018
I'm sure that a lot of enterprise sales organisations are similar, but the unrealistic, old-school and bullying mentality of the middle to senior management was a joke.
Pros
Some autonomy to run territory as you see fit
Cons
Management style, unrealistic targets, constant shifting of goalposts

Great resources and potential
PRINCIPAL PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ENG (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London24 May 2018
I have loved working with Oracle. The company has a vision that is clear and distinctive. There is an abundance of resources, of both manpower and technology.

The market share that it owns, makes it less vulnerable to minor changes and hence the ability to move between LOBS, from an employee point of view, is always there.

The company has a great senior leadership but should really invest more efforts and training in mid-management. The focus needs to move from day to day operations to building future leaders. The fear of competition destroys the new talent that has proven itself, time and again.

The salary packages are not at par with the market. It provides job security but the growth is rather bleak.
Pros
HUge learning opportunity
Cons
Stagnation and salary

Tech Support Not Valued, Just a number
Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  United Kingdom10 May 2018
Upper management in tech support are not interested in people, just purely numbers. They will fire anyone that is has had a bit of a lull in performance rather than talking to them and motivating/helping them,

They send out emails to entire business units threatening people will get fired if KPI's/stat levels are not met.

There is no personability about working at Oracle and favouritism is given to old ex-oracle employees that re-join. (they are able to work from home when others have to go into office every day).

You will feel un-valued and like just a number that can easily be booted out should management see a spreadsheet of stats they are not too impressed with.

Upper management are pure Oracle robots and treat the lower down members of support like rubbish.

You will be overworked unlike any company you have worked for before but still not get any recognition for it.

Only good thing is the benefits system is good and if you dont want the benefits you can take the equivilant cost as cash on your salary instead.

Other than that it will drain all the enthusiasm and motivation out of you and you will have no job satisfaction at all.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Horrendous upper management

Not for the long term
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Reading3 May 2018
OK to get experience but management and direction changes so often that there is no benefit in the long term. Need to keep changing role in order to keep job.
Pros
Good technical people
Cons
You're on your own, cheap on expenses

Cons
Staff not valued. Long hours and on call are the default

Summary
Business Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Reading/Home5 February 2018
The work day is flexible and well balanced. I learned to work autonomously and with minimal interaction from corporate. The hardest part of the job for me was the lack of Corporate strategy fed down the line to employees. The most enjoyable part of the job, was the flexibility to work anywhere.
Pros
Autonomy
Cons
Lack of Strategy/Direction

Not great for salary - job always at risk due to reorganization
Contracts Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington6 January 2018
I was told when I was hired, negotiate the highest salary you can because you won't get a raise. Very true. Policies and management frequently changed. Most people seemed to fill roles simply to check a box in an attempt to advance further. During the time they were in a role they would wreck havoc with policy changes that were not well thought out.

Oracle is a good company to work for if you choose flexibility over salary.
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  United Kingdom9 October 2017
Work from the office 3 days a week and remotely 2 days a week. Slow movement when it comes to career opportunities/ ladder. Management is good despite being remote. Workplace culture is not fun. Very serious environment and low budget for non-work related activities. the most enjoyable part of job is the flexibility.

Consulting Practise Manager (Former Employee) –  London22 September 2017
It is a large process heavy organisation. The work culture is very boring with very little job security and growth prospects.
Benefits are OK. Management is OK. High scope of learning.
