Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women
This company is in the middle of re-tooling for the cloud. I have worked here for almost 20 years (yes, incredible). I have loved my career at Oracle until just recently. I was so happy, I thought I would never, ever leave. But things have changed dramatically. In the last two years I have experienced that senior management is systematically doing a "Reduction in Force" to remove, experienced, older workers (anyone above 50). Next they either use offshore resources (Romania), or they hire new resources without experience who are willing and able to work extreme hours and don't expect substantial raises. From Safra the CEO She said that one of the key elements for the Oracleâ€™s expansion in Romania is the highly trained workforce. â€œWe invest here because itâ€™s a good place to find highly trained employees. Romanians are well educated and most of all they are problem solvers. They try resolve things when others just stop. For us Romania is not just a place for low paying jobs. We have many employees who were recruited from Romania to take executive positions within the group and we have nearly all of our business lines present hereâ€, Oracleâ€™s president explained. There are many educated women in the US who are equally as hard working and determined when problem solving. Don't let her comments fool you, Oracle is highly motivated by cost cutting. Some things they are cutting make sense, others do not. Recently they announced that all remote workers could expect only $50 in expense reimbursement for home telecommuting costs (Phone and internet). For most people this amounts to about a $2000 cut in pay. Add to that, many US workers have not had a salary increase in 3-5 years (if they did it was only 1 or 2 percent). Yet the CEO's and the stockholders seem to do well. This company no longer has a balance with profitability, and human resources. Women are not equally compensated at Oracle, they are not equally promoted (past a certain level)in the same numbers as men. In the past, working for Oracle looked good on a resume. Now, I'm not so sure. I have not left the company, and I'd like to stay for some time to come, but these are tough times for the US Employees.

Huge international company so reviews could vary wildly one department to the next. I like where I work. I've run across institutional issues that interfere with doing my job but none have been gender based. I've received regular raises (small 3-5%) and never had a problem being paid overtime when I've worked it. Oracle is not known for big salaries and raises but I appreciate the stability after years at start-ups. I also have many intangible benefits like controlling my own schedule for what hours I work, no dress code, and I like my team. I suspect much of my enjoyment working for Oracle is due to being in a small operations/development office rather than in one of the huge campus buildings. If I had to Ann Taylor my wardrobe or be in right at 9am my satisfaction would be much lower. I was the only woman until recently in my particular role but there are many women and minorities in the development and operations teams I work with daily. A benefit of giant corporations over start-ups is a working HR and company-wide instituted rules for behavior. I've never had a problem with coworkers so I don't know if everything would work the way they say it does the online training classes we take every year but at least the structure exists for filing a complaint.
I'm a top sales performer but I've been told that my attitude could be "sweeter" that I can be too pushy and aggressive. I've gotten on calls with all men, introductions were made by all other team members and my manager has said I will speak for her and did my introduction for me. He did all the talking the rest of the call. I was brought in by acquisition and haven't seen a raise since. In fact my manager was raised to a higher level and given a bump in pay and while slightly blitzed at a corporate dinner told everyone how bad he felt about getting "our" raises. They also constantly replan their sales people so they don't have to pay them what they earn for being successful. You think your going to earn a great commission and then suddenly it's cut in 1/2 but at Oracle they believe their pay is a "gift" to their employees not that they earn it. There are way too many managers, it is so management top heavy. Also have been told not to log overtime hours when I submit my hours to payroll even though I have worked overtime and am required to do overtime as part of my job.
