I recently left Oracle, thankfully, but haven't received my last paycheck on the 15th. Does anyone know if the last check is sent in the mail or should I have received a direct-deposit.? Also, if anyone has the payroll number, please pass it along.
Oracle has turned into an incredibly slow-moving company with no room left to innovate or be creative. Additionally, there is no room for career growth as nobody is interested in building your skills if you're one of the newer hires. This is no... — read more
I feel sorry when I hear about someone who has a very bad experience with their manager. Fortunately, our manager is one of those who really knows how to get the best out of employees. Otherwise I would have left long ago. However, the question is... — read more

Nobody should be the least bit surprised by LE's constant involvement in buying ( and taking down) acquisitions. The fact of the matter is this is exactly how he grew the company and his own bank account in the first place. Oracle has been... — read more
It's hard to believe that the leadership doesn't care about this company and its future, but I think that this is exactly the case here. Because, if they really cared a lot of things would be very different here, wouldn't they? Everything... — read more

Oracle was once a place where you could build a career and feel safe about your job. Now with each acquisition employees have to be scared of what reorg that acquisition might produce. A friend whose son is applying for a job at Oracle asked me for... — read more

I really don't want to go back. There is no sense in wasting money and time by going to the office, when I can do my job from home without any problems. How many of you would rather take a slightly reduced pay than RTO?
