    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great technology due to large amount of R&D. Late but Oracle manage to quickly turn around to offer Cloud solutions and manage to take the #1 position into the Cloud business

    Cons

    Working solely for shareholders. It is a challenge at Oracle to work and provide the best cost-effective solution for customers. Year over year increased maintenance to customers creates a real show stopper in convincing customers to invest more in Oracle. And Oracle, for no justifiable reasons will budge on maintenance.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your managers up to executive level

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They give you good compensation and benefits. Huge company so they have clout in the market.

    Cons

    You are an interchangeable piece of the over-all machinery. They'll put you where ever they want without significant thought to what you are capable of or what you may or may not want. Last 3 tears I did not even have a review. Not that that really matters since reviews are not tied to salary increases.

    Pros

    Learning opportunities
    Autonomy to do exciting things
    Work with some of the brightest and hardest working people in the industry
    Flexibility and openness of management

    Cons

    Pay is below average for most cities Oracle operates in
    Overall comp is heavily reliant on Bonus to make up short comings in base - however Bonuses are no longer reliable and are much lower than competitors
    Friction between various business units.

    Advice to Management

    If you are actively trying to manage out large parts of the work force than your strategy is working very well. If you are interested in retaining talented team members then better alignment of pay, performance and work environment are needed.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great products from a technical perspective.
    Onstage teams & people are wonderful.
    Great Training plans .

    Cons

    Internal processes are incredibly painful as it takes weeks not days to be responsive.
    Not customer centric - most customers have to deal with 15-20 reps who are not aligned all fighting for revenue - it isn't customer friendly to say the least and very hard to navigate.
    The company is ALL self service however if something goes wrong - it can take months to resolve (health care enrolment, laptops procurement, commissions).

    Advice to Management

    Mgmt - until you become an easier company to do business with and change perspective on internal competition, you will lose business to those companies that are faster/easier to work with -- even tho you have better products.
    Make it easier & align your internal teams.
