    In addition to applying online, I sent my resume to a recruiter at Oracle who I knew from a previous application. She forwarded my resume along. I was contacted for a live interview with the hiring supervisor. I then had a live interview with the team and a key business contact.

    Senior Director, Product Management Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Pleasanton, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted and assessed by a recruiter. We discussed the job description, my qualifications and interest. I was then scheduled for first round phone interviews.

    The interviewer asked no product management questions only technical questions. He was aggressive in tone and sounded angry saying "if I sound angry, this is my way". I come from engineering and services and passed. I asked if the job managed engineers due to the technical aspect of the interview. His said "No, I just need to assess as the engineers won't respect you if you're not technical enough". He further explained that the PM's focus is on design of the features and what the software will do and engineers take care of how its done. There were no questions about PDLC, MVP, or product management. He then asked questions to get age, ethnicity and education details, even though my school was on the resume. I managed to gracefully move on without giving personal data and redirect to the job description. As a seasoned executive with direct reports, it is important to stay away from questions that may seem discriminatory and keep my voice tone professional. I obviously passed as I was asked to meet in person and schedule the executive phone interview. The in person interview was the same questions as phone interview and I progressed to the executive phone interview.

    About 1-2 weeks later, I had a phone interview with an executive and again, no questions about product management. I worked at a competitor and I was asked questions about how the software design handled integration with monitoring, cloud technologies, databases, app server and analytics technologies. I answered with info on design approaches, types of integration technologies that can be used like RESTful, network and messaging technologies, etc. It was as if he was trying to find details about the product architecture, design specs, roadmap, etc., and uncover something I didn't have an answer for. I talked about monitoring technology from HP, CA, IBM and Open Source. I talked about the plug-ins, SNMP support, and APIs and how New Relic and Splunk supports that technology for integration with applications. I addressed questions about real-time and near realtime design for integration, database updates and analytics. I then asked the interviewer questions about how this line of questioning on monitoring, data layer and analytics plays into the product management role. I thought he was going to say something about design, MVP, prototypes, experimentation as this level of detail would be necessary if this PM group participated or led those activities His answer was surprising; he said it does not as engineering really focus on technologies to build the software. The engineers would be more interested. He said that he just wanted to know. He mentioned that Oracle uses their own technologies and enables enterprise manager for monitoring, service management, etc. At this time it was becoming apparent he was trying to find out about the competition and I scaled back and talked about realtime analytics from a product design standpoint and not the underlying technology and development approaches.

    I thanked him and asked about next steps. His response was another good one. He said Oracle wants at least one woman and he had to check the box. He said he had others to interview and that I should check back with the recruiter. Eventually, I was told they wanted to go another route and the reason was I did not know enough about monitoring tools. My ability to talk about developing features to integrate with 5 Gartner leading technologies and propose design and development options was not enough. To add insult to injury, all the interviewers admitted this level of detail was not relevant to the role. It was a waste of time!!!

    Negotiation

    Oracle is hard nut to crack when negotiating your Salary. Advice is to not give in and stand your ground; if they want you then they might take sometime but will agree to the desired compensation.
