Hi fishes.

I have an accepted an offer from Oracle and around 8 days are left for my joining. But right after getting Oracle's offer I received an offer from another company with similar package but my preference is to join the second company.

The manager of Oracle is really kind and always followed up with me during the whole procedure and I am really feeling bad and thinking how to say I won't be joining. Can you please suggest some most possible polite words of how to convey this to him?

We do lot of recruitment and be sweet when market is in boom because we don't get to keep the candidate. when market is not good we act tough. keep doing what is good for you. companies come and go.


Definitely brother... Just highlighted what I felt... I did attend lot of interviews and dealt with managers... This person in Oracle was different...


I have joined Oracle because of the manager though I have other offers with just 2 or 3 lakhs difference. For me work environment is very important than money. Being peaceful everyday is very important rather being happy on a salary day only. Its again your decision, think what you want and go-ahead.


Any insights please

Oracle hiring managers are only good till you join because they badly need people. Once you join or reject the offer you will see the true colour.


Nothing as of now.

Oracle is employee friendly. No doubt but just consider the future growth as well. Based on my Oracle experience growth options and limited and hikes are less. But work life balance is great


Same boat my dear friend... This hiring manager was too good with me... And he even offered a package of 2 lakh more than i asked...

The problem is with the support nature of role and also full work from office....

I also working towards few other offers and inclined to join those one or other...

I am really upset to cross this kind manager and feeling bad...


+1 I also recently had to decline oracle offer and the manager was too good. But sometime we have to take tough decisions based on our interest.


How to you Oracle that you are not going to join them. Whom we need to send the mail. Is there any official formalities that we need to do?


Same doubt....

Same here

Will Oracle consider a candidate again if we accept the offer and don't join?

Yes, its you chice right. You have every right to reject. But while rejecting be careful about reason you mention, that will be considered next opportunity with Oracle.

Same with me

Dont join oracle

can you please elaborate ? It will be helpful for all

Same with me. I am getting little more in EY GDS than Oracle but in my home town whereas for Oracle I will have to relocate to Hyderabad location. Growth wise EY GDS is better what I heard for my friends.

Oracle seems to be good in resume.wlb is great here.hikes do not expect too much..

Working at ACN right now, 2 YOE. Will pivoting over to a startup in a more software sales-based role for another 2 years before my MBA (and moving internationally for this) add to, or take away from my story? I’m thinking:
Cons: less brand recognition, shows I didn’t stick around long enough to show progression, strength of recommenders, lower pay
Pros: international experience, less conventional background and shows I have a more diversified skill, probably more impact @ a startup.

After spending 4 years as a mid-level ops manager, I tried to break into HR through talent acquisition. Now after 6 years in TA, I've had a hard time getting out of it. My goal was always to get into a more broad HRBP position, but I've since worked for smaller orgs without a solid HR career path. When I ask about my career goals, they keep telling me, "Soon!" Or "Maybe in 6 months!"

I'm testing SPHR in June. Any advice for securing the type of role I'm aiming for?
