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.

A company that does not value staff
Senior IT Consultant (Former Employee) –  UK19 March 2018
9 hours minimum expected per day. Always on call. Staff are treated as numbers. Enormous learning opportunities but always alongside or in addition to whatever else you have got to do. Management is a take it or leave attitude.
Pros
Fast-paced
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.

Receptionist
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Reading, Berkshire15 September 2017
A very quiet reception job role with zero administration work. Mainly meet and greet of the clients. Plenty of benefits to chose from, the restaurants within the buildings have restaurants (although this does add up and become expensive). Friendly employees, 1 hour lunch breaks with 2x 15min tea breaks.
Pros
1 hour breaks. Benefits.
Cons
expensive lunches
