Great place depending what you are looking for; Timing and Territory is everything

I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Led by one of the smartest guys on the planet. Great people in every part of the business. Breadth and depth of application and technology means they are in nearly every account - and therefore have the ability to get C-Level access.

Cons

Too many sales people calling on same accounts. Last I counted, it exceeded 16. Confusion and frustration for customers and Oracle Sales Rep alike.
Business practices are rigid and slow (for reps and customers).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They have a well-oiled machine as-is so not sure there is more to share.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Oracle is a very large company and as such has decent benefits
    - Despite what many report they do pay "well"
    - If you are lazy this is a good place to hide and not have to work terribly hard

    Cons

    - Toxic culture
    - Stiffing for innovators
    - Company is run by bankers, not engineers
    - Company values management over rank and file (e.g. bonus's paid to exec only during hard times)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the super large organization into manageable pieces that can actually develop new software. Buying smaller companies and destroying them is not helping the staff or customers. This practice does help the stockholders (e.g. Larrry E) so I suspect it is not going change. However, other companies have shown that innovation can be profitable (salesforce) and it was only 15 years ago when Oracle could actually innovate.
