    I worked at Oracle as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pretty good experience with the team and well-build code there. Team are very helpful and the job is interesting and not that hard but you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    The salary is pretty good as an intern and overall there is nothing to say that is not good in this company.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make the environment more startup-like, flatten management structure, eliminate big-company processes.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    It'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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep motivating your employee's

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Find 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.

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Oracle provides a lot of skills and technical training. If you are willing to network and work hard - then it is a great place to work and thrive.

    Cons

    Expectations are high - however if you are a competent hard worker - that is not an issue!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care to have the personal touch in managing the lower level employees.
