I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA).
Very lengthy process. The entire process took about 6 months. There were 4 phone interviews- each around 30 mins--these were all technical. The phone interviews were spread over 2 weeks and started about a month after I first submitted my resume via LinkedIn to the recruiter. A month after the last phone interview, I was called for an onsite interview. I met around 6-7 people there---most of the sessions were technical and were focused around my knowledge in the space and experience in the field --these were with various other product managers and engg managers. I was asked to prepare a presentation beforehand on a given and the final session I was asked to present for 30 mins to that audience. After 6 week from the day of the onsite interview I was called and told that they would be making a verbal offer. A week after that I was made a verbal offer. I negotiated the verbal offer--that took about 3 weeks. A month after that I got a call that I was hired.
- Nothing difficult--just lots of questions. For someone who's been working in this exact same niche field for a decade and has seen scores of customers and solved their issues---the interview was a total breeze. 2 Answers
I wanted them to match my previous salary from my previous job which was at a large competitor where I was a sales consultant. My primary motivation for this position was to change my role to a product manager. Product Managers at Oracle are in R&D and they are paid considerably lower than what you can make in presales. Average presales consultant salaries (cash + commission bonus) in the security space for a large enterprise security software vendor are usually in the range of 170k. I turned down their first offer--they subsequently asked for salary statements from my current job and I negotiated the base salary with them to be significantly higher than their base for a product manager--my criteria was that assuming a 5-6% cash bonus the total should match up to the quoted figure above.
