    Pros

    Great company to work for, good employee benefits, compensation package and paid vacations.

    Cons

    It's fairly difficult to be noticed within the company, too much outsourcing and departments closing without much of a notice. Also, long time employees do not receive salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Try to retain your valued employees by offering bonuses for those that have been with the company for a certain period of time.

    Pros

    Large tech company with significant resources. Diverse business - apps, technology, hardware - means both stability and future opportunity. Surprisingly good and supportive culture (e.g. large number of employees with years' tenure in double digits). Good benefits and good work/live balance.

    Cons

    Slow to move to the cloud for apps business, which puts it a bit behind competitors. On-boarding process for new associates needs a lit of work, ramp-up is a challenge. Missing the "cool factor" of more recent tech startups that have grown to maturity, e.g SFDC. Lingering bureaucracy ("administrivia") a bit of an unnecessary burden for most roles.

    Advice to Management

    Go all-in on cloud (already doing that). Fix on boarding and use of internal systems for scale and ease of use. Be militant about seeking out and eliminating bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Very innovative, dynamic, bleeding edge technology company. Fun, fun, fun.

    Cons

    Expects 150% of each and every individual. Little investments in people development.

    Advice to Management

    Pay comparable salaries to market. Oracle lags in compensation compared to other IT companies.
