    Lots of opportunities to learn

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou get to learn (and develop) core technologies, middleware that is in use all around the world, by millions (or in the case of Java - billions) of users. You are building industry-leading software.

    ConsThere is just too much process, too many layers of management, slow release cycle, too much red tape. Agility is missing. Mediocracy is often tolerated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the environment more startup-like, flatten management structure, eliminate big-company processes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Oracle work

    Senior Recruiter (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsVery solid company with very sharp people working here. I always enjoy the challenge of being an Oracle employee

    ConsIt's very self service driven. If you can't do things on your own you are not going to last as long. Everything is self serve.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep motivating your employee's

    Great place to work long term

    Master Principal Sales Consultant (Current Employee)
    Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsBeen treated really well, good reciprocation and partnership in job. Great training. Great manager. Have had the same VP for almost a decade.

    ConsNo lateral management, many internal silos. Need to negotiate hard upfront for salary, since there's little to no raises once you're there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to allow for some job sharing, to allow employees to learn more about the business. Force engineering groups to work better, together. Focus more attention on UI design of products.
