The environment that is uniquely Oracle by Phillip Yi
By Nadiya on Oct 23, 2013
In the past month, I have been given the exclusive opportunity to hire a Legal graduate/intern for Oracle’s in-house Legal Counsel based here in North Ryde, Sydney.
Whilst talking to various applicants, I am asked the same, broad question – what are we looking for?
Time and time I have spoken about targeting the best, or targeting the best fit. I am an advocate of the latter, hence when approaching this question I answer very simply – ‘we are looking for the individual, that will fit into the culture and environment that is uniquely Oracle’.
So, what is the environment/culture like here at Oracle? What makes Oracle so unique and a great place to work, especially as a graduate?
Much like our business model, we are forward and innovative thinkers – we are not afraid to try new things, whether it is a success or failure. We are all highly driven, motivated and successful individuals – Oracle is a firm believer that in order to be driven, motivated and successful, you need to be surrounded by like minded people. And last, we are all autonomous and independent, self starters – at Oracle you are treated as an adult. We are not in the business of continually micro managing, nor constantly spoon feeding or holding your hand. Oracle has an amazing support, resource and training network – if you need support, extra training or resources it is there for your taking. And of course, if you do it on your own accord, you will learn it much quicker.
For those reasons, Oracle is unique in its environment – we ensure and set up everyone for success.
With such a great working environment/culture, why wouldn’t you choose Oracle?
