    Pros

    Oracle is a juggernaut in the industry.

    Very successfully transitioning to be the premier cloud provider.

    Flex work allows people to work from their home office.

    Cons

    Customers don’t like us. Terribly bureaucratic processes that make customers jump through hoops just to do business with them.

    Focus is exclusively on revenue. The customer’s best interest is always put second.

    Oracle consulting services (OCS) has a terrible reputation with customers and software reps alike.

    Most software reps flat out refuse to include OCS in their deals because they’ve been burned too many times in the past.

    Most definitely make no distinction between leadership and management. Being a manager makes you a leader by default at the lower ranks when their role is purely to manage forecast and kick news up the chain of command.

    My manager has had 100% attrition on his team since he started in his ‘leadership’ role and the upper echelons refuse to acknowledge that he is the main reason that people are leaving.

    Constant threats of loosing your job, people are totally expendable. Condescending, arrogant and verbally abusive is a way of life at least in OCS.

    Advice to Management

    None because they already know everything.

    Technical Resources
    Innovation
    Cloud investment
    Leader in DB and Application SW

    Cons

    Frequent changes in company structure, too much talent is let go each time a change is made.

    Hire within, stop losing talent which results in losing revenue.
