Oracle – Why Work For Us?

undefined

Choose the Environment That's Best for You

Do you thrive in a city? Like spending time outdoors? Or do you prefer a more suburban lifestyle? Oracle’s work environment is diverse, flexible, and inclusive. Which means that no matter where you work, you’ll have great perks and benefits.

Oracle US Locations

Oracle HQ is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Few places within the US offer the variety of resources that are available in the Bay Area–the Golden Gate Bridge, the surf at Santa Cruz, the slopes of Lake Tahoe, and the awe-inspiring Yosemite Valley. Oracle’s campus is located in the heart of Silicon Valley and features a full gym, coffee bars, several cafes, and outdoor sand volleyball court. Whether you like to work out, share experiences with colleagues over coffee or enjoy sightseeing, you’ll find it all in the Bay Area.

The beautiful campus in Broomfield, Colorado, is located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, not far from world-class ski resorts, hiking, mountaineering, and whitewater rafting. It’s the perfect place for adventure vacations and enjoying the great outdoors.

Oracle’s Nashua, New Hampshire, office is close to the White Mountains and the Atlantic coast. This community has been honored twice by being named "The Best Place to Live in America" by Money Magazine. If you feel like a drive at night or on the weekend, it’s little more than an hour to historic and vibrant Boston, Massachusetts.

Oracle's Burlington and Cambridge, Massachusetts offices have certified personal trainers, and licensed massage therapists on staff for your well-being. These locations—exciting on their own—are both close to Massachusetts' awesome capital and largest city, Boston.

Our facility in Austin, Texas, gets you close to all that’s happening in that capital city, including outstanding music, food, and vibrant cultural diversity.

Helping Employees Shape the Future of Their Careers

Oracle provides extensive training opportunities and a supportive environment that fosters career self-management.

As an employer of choice in the rapidly evolving technology industry, Oracle encourages and empowers employees at all levels to engage in professional development. Beginning with the orientation of new employees and continuing into leadership development, technical training, professional skills courses, and customized organizational development consultations, almost every Oracle employee takes advantage of the online and in-person training and professional development that Oracle provides.

New Employee Orientation

Oracle hires thousands of new employees each year. New staff members ramp up quickly with online orientation materials that immerse them in Oracle business practices, organizational policies, history, and culture. In addition, they can access the Oracle Learning portal, which provides self-directed training on hundreds of important career-related subjects. Nearly all employees continue to use this learning portal as they progress through their Oracle careers.

Career Development

The Oracle Career Development portal gives employees the opportunity to view inspiring career success stories, understand job competencies, and create career development plans. Additionally, career development is supported by a variety of other tools, including

  • Organization and Talent Development Learning Centers, which provide employees with a variety of resources to learn specific skills
  • Professional development training, which includes instructor-led and e-learning courses to help employees develop and improve specific skills
  • Job-readiness and job-competency toolkits, which help employees assess their skills alignment with specific job functions

In addition, we provide targeted opportunities for new college graduates and interns to broaden their skills as they prepare to enter the workforce.

Continuous Learning on Demand

Through the Virtual Information Services (VIS) program, Oracle provides employees with on-demand access to an extensive digital library of critical business resources. With its focus on collaboration and knowledge sharing, the VIS platform facilitates timely decision-making and enhances our employees’ productivity and effectiveness.

Examples of resources available for on-demand learning include

  • Harvard ManageMentor and Skillsoft: Online and mobile learning options for leadership and management skills development
  • Journals and magazines: Technical and business publications relevant to Oracle's business (EBSCO, IEEE, ACM, and more)
  • Safari Books Online: Critical technical resources, including books and videos
  • GlobeSmart: Cultural guidance that helps employees work globally and conduct business in more than 80 countries
  • GlobalEnglish: Practices to help sharpen business communication in English
  • Oracle Social Network: An online knowledge-sharing platform that enables employees to connect and collaborate with each other in real time

Technical Training

In order to develop and support Oracle’s world-class products, our employees must continuously evolve their technical skills. We provide a variety of formal and informal technical training resources for employees, including Oracle University training, external training, self-study, “brown bag” lunch sessions, technical webcasts and seminars, on-the-job training, and one-on-one mentoring.

Oracle University Training

Oracle University, the world’s leading provider of Oracle product training, offers thousands of courses to employees. Approximately 5,000 Oracle employees attend Oracle University classes daily. Student evaluations from these courses reflect that 99 percent of employees would do one or more of the following:

  • Take another class from Oracle University
  • Take another class from their instructor
  • Recommend Oracle University training to others

Employee demand for Oracle University courses has grown in recent years, and more than 3.7 million hours of training were delivered to employees in FY14.

Talent Management

We seek to retain and develop high-potential employees who provide great value to Oracle and our customers. Oracle's Organization and Talent Development team works to identify such employees at all levels of our business and guide strategic decisions regarding their development.

Our internal systems allow employees and managers to review and track employee performance against the required competencies for a particular job function. We continue to evolve our talent capabilities by implementing our own products, including Oracle HCM Cloud, to help empower our employees.

Leadership Development

Oracle employees have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through numerous programs, including

  • Lead to Achieve: A targeted program for new front-line managers
  • Lead Beyond: A targeted program for new directors
  • Talent Management portal: A portal to ensure the right people are in the right roles
  • Conversations Matter portal: A portal to increase the effectiveness of workplace conversation
  • Performance Appraisal Training Center: A program to effectively manage employee performance and feedback

Organization Development

Oracle’s success depends on the capabilities of our people and the effectiveness of our organizations. As our executives and managers lead their organizations to achieve, Oracle’s organization development consultants are available to help them maximize team performance and productivity. These consultants provide support in areas such as organization strategy, assessment, design, organization change, cross-organization collaboration, mergers and acquisitions integration, and team effectiveness.

Environment, Health, and Safety Management

Oracle’s environment, health, and safety (EHS) programs meet or exceed industry standards and global health and safety laws and regulations. They include

Employee Awareness and Training

To educate all employees on how to prevent work-related injuries, we provide an online EHS awareness training that must be completed every three years. Our Environment, Health, and Safety team is certified to assess risks in the workplace and provide risk mitigation training and support to all Oracle departments.

Ergonomics

Oracle provides extensive ergonomic resources to employees. We offer ergonomics evaluations at Oracle offices, and customized evaluations for employees who work from home. General ergonomics information is also available online, as are self-assessment check lists and recommendations for ergonomic equipment.

Audits and Inspections

Oracle’s Environment, Health, and Safety team conducts periodic audits to identify and correct workplace hazards. Per government requirements, we conduct annual audits and quarterly inspections at our facilities worldwide. We ask employees to report any injuries, accidents, near misses, and hazards promptly so we can investigate and take corrective action.

Supporting Employee Health and Well-Being

Oracle offers a range of services to promote employee health and wellness, including

Health Insurance

Many of our health insurance and reimbursement programs include preventive care services. Where available, we may also offer health improvement programs that help employees learn about common health risks, review their personal risk factors, and access educational materials regarding healthy lifestyle choices.

Fitness Centers

In many Oracle locations, employees have access to onsite fitness facilities or reduced membership rates at offsite health clubs. In some countries, employee’s health club fees and other related expenses are reimbursable or provided as a benefit.

Stanford Medicine Corporate Partners Program

Oracle is a founding member of the Stanford Medicine Corporate Partners program, which supports the development of the new Stanford Hospital. As part of Oracle's membership, our employees around the world receive educational seminars and curated health information from the Stanford Health Library. Additionally, Oracle employees have access to Stanford Medicine's expertise through 24/7 medical concierge and navigation services, available globally. Read the story.

Employee Assistance Plan

Oracle employees have access to employee assistance program (EAP) professionals who provide support during difficult times. Oracle's EAP programs vary by region, and in some cases by country, to ensure that the programs address local language and specific cultural needs. While EAP services emphasize mental health assistance and healthy coping during challenging life events, they may include financial and legal counseling as well.

Other Programs and Initiatives

Oracle promotes employee health and wellness through a variety of initiatives such as health fairs, biometric screenings, flu shots, general health education, and the promotion of preventive care. Programs vary by country and region but align with Oracle's overall goal to support employee well-being.

We look for the kind of people with whom we want to work on a daily basis: people with track records of exceptional achievement in school and business, people with strong self-motivation and an uncommon drive to excel, and, every bit as important, people who are well-rounded and fun to be around.”

This is achieved through a structured campus program at Universities and Colleges in collaboration with the career offices. Information pertaining to various job opportunities is communicated to the students through career offices, career fairs, on-campus information sessions, and/or our company website every year. 

Internships: Oracle offers internship opportunities to students, as per line of business specifications. Projects are offered in appropriate areas where the students are expected to deliver results, apart from gaining the knowledge-edge. Experienced managers mentor and guide the students throughout the internship period. Internships are compensated and student participants are evaluated at the end of the program.

Oracle demonstrates its commitment to diversity and inclusion through a variety of programs. For example

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs): ERGs are communities of employees with similar interests or experiences that are strategically aligned with both the company’s business goals and its diversity and inclusion objectives. These groups provide a support system for employees within the company, encourage diversity and inclusiveness at all levels, help attract and retain top talent, and promote career and leadership development.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview followed by multiple rounds of in person interviews spread across couple of weeks. The process was painstakingly slow with little to no communication in between. Commitments for letting me know about the feedback and decision were never honored. In the end, the offer that was provided was less then what I currently make which is a big surprise because my salary requirements were conveyed and documented right from the beginning. Also, the way they treated salary negotiation was very insulting.
