    Pay attention to staff survey, lip service is not enough.

    Powerful brand, cutting edge technology, ample opportunities, provides good work-life balance.

    stagnated growth, no transparency of the business strategy at the mid senior management, high handedness of resources, strategies keeps evolving and changing, not allowing to settle with something that works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please "listen to the voice of the employees", they too can come up with brilliant ideas which can turn around the performance of Cloud Services, a.k.a. On Demand

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Oracle has grown a diverse line of products, all striving to be best in class. Unlike other companies that grow through acquisition, Oracle fully assimilates these products, over time, into end-to-end solutions. I used that think that was just Marketing, but I've found it to be true.

    Cons

    Easy to feel isolated, accessing self-service applications, working remotely on virtual teams, without contact to coworkers, and not always having contact with customers.

    Unfriendly and Depressing

    Former Employee - Human Resources Assistant Manager  in  Edison, NJ
    Former Employee - Human Resources Assistant Manager in Edison, NJ

    I worked at Oracle as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I was given a good position and good pay (even though it was through a temp agency), and the job title was above what I was expecting.

    Cons

    The people are unfriendly to newcomers, and the working environment is just depressing. People really don't like their jobs and there's a high turnover rate. Even though everyone's hours are supposedly 9-5, people were late all the time and left early. My first day, no one knew that I was starting, and one person thought I was just interviewing. My boss had a family emergency but no one bothered to tell me so I was just sitting around all day.
    The rest of the team was rude and unwelcoming, and they feigned interest only to take advantage of me later. When I shared my ideas with an individual, they took credit for them at the next staff meeting. Overall, it's just an unhappy and toxic place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a thorough sweep of the departments and weed out everybody that causes such a negative atmosphere.
