    I worked at Oracle (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and that's about it.

    Cons

    Too many to list! How about they change your comp plan and pay you out and then change it back and illegally retro it back to the beginning of the year and have you pay it all back. Then management tells you to consider it an interest free loan. The finance comp people say its not their problem and HR is useless. Who does that? Oh Oracle does and that's when you sell their outdated products. And then they replace you with college hires for half that price and they leave after a year and they go after their signing bonus's. Shady place! All the quota earners were pushed out. Great sales management!

    Advice to Management

    Stop being shady! You have the $ hire some seasoned people and stop promoting the but kissers and actually look at the ones that care and are doing their jobs. And if they hit their quota you might want to keep them and not push them out and keep the ones that do nothing. How that makes sense I have no idea.

    Pros

    Some great people to work along with (extended family).

    Cons

    Too much "Corporate Politics" Nepotism @ its finest.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your staff. They are the biggest assets to any company.

    Pros

    work from home; decent work life balance

    Cons

    Many; all decisions taken by top people; too many politics and power hungry people at top; changes in direction very often; low salary and zero promotions unless you get a counter offer. In general people are unhappy in Fusion Middleware and only stick around because of ability to work from home

    I worked at Oracle (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many challenges, many opportunities to make a difference

    Cons

    I don't believe all of Oracle is like this but... employees from previous acquisition are burned out and spirits have been broken. Very toxic environment stemming from mgmt fear tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Simple... live by the golden rule and treat people with respect.

    Pros

    Good insurance benefits. Work/Life balance.

    Slow innovation, very poor culture, very very minimal raises, most inside sales orgs are a complete joke and you get money depending on what territory you are placed.

    Quit

    Pros

    Free showers in the gym, too bad H1B's don't use them.

    Cons

    little promotion availability. Management lies to it's employees on a regular basis. Nepotism runs rampant. H1B workers are often favored over US employees, then they sponsor green cards so they can underpay and hire more H1B.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking better care of employees, especially those with long commitments to the company success.
