    I have received Verbal Offer for the position of Senior Application developer. I have been even informed about my team and role. But the offer letter is stuck up in Finance department. Anyone facing such issue. When can I expect the offer.
    I got verbal offer on June 4th. I uploaded my documents on July 5th and since then I am waiting for my offer. It is waiting in finance department...

    Nope...Luckily
    They said that I might need to wait for a couple of months to get my offer and in that case also they're not sure

    Even I am wondering what could be the reason....Earlier in Jan also I faced similar experience with Oracle...Now again. The
    Possible reasons can be
    1. Either poor financial quarter
    2. Budget issue with BU (This may look strange but yes it can be)
    3. Head count
    Or may be some other reason

    This is what I understood from my research in internet or after reading reviews regarding oracle hiring process

    Even I am not sure.....That is dependent on the genuine reason behind. But there were cases where oracle released offers even after 3-6 months after the interview.

    So when waiting how can I check the Job status or application status from my side. Is contacting the Hiring manager the only way ? It has been exactly 2 months now since I submitted my documents for BG verification. Now should I wait for some more time ?

    You can probably ask your Hiring Manager if there's any progress or any sort of possibility they could see for the offer to be released in near time. Depending on what he says,you can think, probably decide what to do.
    You can also check your job application status in the oracle careers portal, I won't suggest this way as they may/may not be updating the application status.
    Note :
    1. status Under Review : means you're profile got selected and approval seeking is in progress -- read this from some where in internet

    yes the Job status is Under review and last updated was June 10th. My hiring manager said all other applications r going through same process and he told me he will keep me posted on the offer status and he only adviced me to join the other organization and once Offer comes I can resign and join Oracle if I am okay. That's why I decided to join the other organization. I am still curious to know the status always . Human nature what to do
    What about your offer letter status ?? Have u got the Offer letter ??

    Yes, Exactly the human nature, I haven't got my offer yet, job application status is under review, Currently I am looking for other opportunities.
    is he (your hiring manager) really sure that your offer will be released for sure ?
    When you'll be joining the new organisation ?

    He said Yes surely I will get but he didn't say that directly. I am joining on 9ty Sept. My Hiring manager told that before 9th there doesn't seem to be any progress in the offer so you better join the organization.
    If u get a y updates please let me know. U can share your email ID so that I can ask u and update u my status as well.
