I stumbled across this video Life at Oracle: Jane Glasgow - Loves to Rock in which Jane talks about her experiences as an Oracle employee and as lead singer in her band, Scope Creek, the all-Oracle employee unofficial house band. I had to chuckle because, thanks to Oracle (albeit indirectly), I’m in a band too.
After commuting to Denver for 20 years—an hour each way best case scenario—I became a home based Feral Worker in 2007. The flexibility and freedom associated with this transition directly lead to my being able to hang out at the local open mic on Thursday evenings, something I could only have dreamed of back when I was commuting. Hanging out at open mic almost always leads to being in band. Just ask Head and the Heart.
Oracle’s business processes leverage enabling technologies to support a diverse, mobile, and talented workforce. My team is spread across about a dozen global time zones but we are connected 24/7/365 with our collaborative social network, live chat, video conferencing, and even old fashioned email. All on our smartphones, tablets, and laptops. We work hard and play hard and sometimes those lives overlap.
