    Great technology, good compensation and nothing else comes to mind.

    Cons

    Like working for the gov't. Top down mgmt that listens to know what and thus out of touch with the market. Keep bad news to yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least pretend you are listening to your employees.

    Pros

    Flexible work life. Lots of project options. Better time-off policies and chances of promotions and career growth. Lots of opportunities for training.

    Great office culture, Benefits are average. It comes with all the disadvantages of a big company. Lacks the competitive mid level management. Not much stock options.

    Provide batter facilities, stock options, salaries to engineers otherwise they will look somewhere else.

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Oracle expects a great deal from employees, in return they provide above average compensation and very good benefits.

    Cons

    Not much time for professional growth, very political, even constructive feedback is considered complaining, customer is not the top priority, and executive management has no concept of reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek ways to balance quarterly earnings and customer satisfaction.
    Read the surveys the employees complete with feedback for you.
    Stop shooting the messenger.

    Job safty is given at Oracle

    Cons

    At Oracle pay special attention negotiating your salary upfront.

    Pros

    Surrounded by excellent sales talent
    Fantastic benefits
    Wide range of products that are market leading

    Cons

    Can be difficult to get things done internally
    Bureaucratic
    Company is a slave to quarterly numbers and will drive employees to the brink to get the numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire sales people that sell business value, not bully clients into seeing/buying software
    Too many Oracle reps all assigned to the same account - drives clients crazy

    Pros

    good environment with good benefits.

    Cons

    Bad salary, many processes to go through. Management doesn't care about employees. Employees resign by the dozens while management careless about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    come down from the ivory tower and listen to the individual contributors. Managers are the least guys to leave as they have super easy jobs.
