Pros

The benefits of working at Oracle are many: Great resume builder, outstanding training, and gaining exposure to a very solid product portfolio. The pay is pretty decent, as are the benefits. After spending a year there, you will have the opportunity to move on outside the company, but the chances of moving up internally are few and far in between.

Cons

The work environment is extremely intense and often turns reasonable people into jerks - yelling and intimidation is common at the end of each quarter. Many seasoned, experienced employees leave due to the unreasonable amount of stress that exists as a result of too many VP's who constantly try to justify their existence and create a contentious relationship with the field AND customers. The prevailing view is that it's OK to frustrate and anger a customer, so long as the revenue is delivered.

Advice to Management

Wake up and ask yourself why there are so many VP's in OD? Why is the turnover so high? Why do you put ridiculous amounts of pressure on the first line managers? Why is HR constantly getting involved with this organization? If those questions are answered honestly, you are on the path to fixing the problems. Talk is cheap, but actions are not....

    Pros

    You get a very flexible work. so, you are completely free to prioritize your work. You are allotted the work and its upto to finish it up withing the given stipulated time. No micro management by the higher management. Also, you can do extra work if you are interested. I did get to work on tools and even patents during my free time.

    Cons

    not very much innovative or you wont get to work on cutting edge technologies. Very much suitable for someone who looks to spend much time with his/her family
