In my 6 years at Oracle, I’ve yet to experience monotony, since Oracle has been able to provide me diverse roles and flexibility to keep me going. Oracle provides incredible career opportunities, and all one has to do is stay positive, believe in oneself, and possess a can-do attitude.
I joined Oracle in 2012 while I was on a career break after the birth of my first child. I’m thankful to my then-manager who saw the potential in me, and recruited me in spite of being on a break. I joined the Oracle Financial Services Software Consulting team to be part of the process-led implementation of the FLEXCUBE suite of products, where I learned nuances of process modeling and new technologies.
After the birth to my second child, I decided to look for another role that was predominantly travel-free and would help me grow new skills. I joined the Financial Services Global Business Unit PMO team, where I focused on Project Management, Contracting, Project Reviews, and Project Health Checks. Oracle’s training on Project Management and Oracle Unified Methodology (OUM)—along with the support of my husband and family—helped me achieve success in this new role, while juggling my home life with a breast-fed baby and a school-goer.
I then moved into my current role in Risk Management, where I help review complex consulting bids, complete qualitative risk analysis during the initiation phase of a project, conduct project health checks for ongoing consulting projects, and play an advisory role for Project Managers and Consulting.
