    Overall good place. Industry leader obviously

    Weak Canadian management. Marketing is all handled from the States. So you're on your own

    When in Rome do like the romans. Hire Canadian leadership and marketing teams

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Past experience is not a requirement, we just want people that know what they're doing and capable of thinking for themselves/independently. you're never treated like you work in an assembly line

    Cons

    you reach a certain level then you plateau

    Advice to Management

    Have a strategy or a vision of what you want to do and where you're give. This gives the team a chance to create their own opportunities that will align and expand on the vision

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, good company to work at if you enjoy being a self starter

    Cons

    No room for career progression, most people actually leave Oracle, work for a few years else where and then come back in a much higher position and salary. Cuts and redundancies are made without warning. Prepare for your job to suddenly be made redundant, HR to shepard you into a meeting room like a cow sent to the slaughter house, and your manager to just suddenly offer no proper explanation and not even a thank you for the years you've put into the company.

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Access to large scale technologies and experience in a process (Operations) driven business model. Learning about and overcoming challenges everyday, both internally and externally.

    Cons

    Never secure. Constant pressure. "Do or Die" mentality, regardless of performance.

    Advice to Management

    Assess the talent you have before slashing the headcount. Too many good employees with heads on their shoulders are lost to Oracle due to mass dismissals. Management has to ask themselves , "are we letting an investment go to never return?"

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of opportunities. I work at the NetSuite division in Mississauga. Mini gym inside the company and free snacks and drinks. Benefits are standard benefits, 3 weeks vacation

    Cons

    Started working here a few months ago, saw about 3 or 4 people leave in my time there. High turnover. Sometimes hard to get leaves approved months in advance. Would recommend as a good starting job but after that it would be good to move on

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on retaining employees
