Good Work Life Balance

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Oracle

Pros

Good work life balance, large amount of systems software. The company is stable and every product has a clear path to revenue unlike many other software companies. The benefits are good as well.

Cons

Very bureaucratic like every other big company. It can be incredibly difficult to get something even like a Macbook Pro. Many of the legacy systems code is quite painful, but it's a piece of software that makes money.

  1. A very old company for old people. Not enough innovations.

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours. Ideal for married people who have family obligations to do. Very little workload. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    An aging company that lacks innovations. Big corporate inefficiency is also noticeable since I couldn't start working on the first week because the company laptop hasn't arrived yet. Work may not seem interesting enough for young people. The products are too old.

    Pros

    -lots of career opportunities -flexibility to work from home (depending on group you are in) -best practices in its processes so you can learn a lot -good insurance benefits -cafes onsite if at HQ (though food isn't free and not discounted at all, but its good)

    Cons

    -mentality is "you're lucky to work here" -comp is terrible with raises ranging from zero to 2%, bonuses just as low -depending on the group you are in, work/life balance is terrible. groups tend to be understaffed. I've worked many holidays, vacations, weekends and all nighters -"self service" cutlure can be hard to adjust to. it can be frustrating finding your way on your own with the bredth and depth of the size of the company -communication isn't stellar. employees are usually last to know and many sometimes hear about org changes weeks and months later.
