Pros

Great team to work with and a network of talented individuals who are always willing to help you out if you email the d-list(s).
Fully utilized as a consultant. Limited bench time, if any.
Training at your fingertips
Good place to consult and see other businesses in action

Cons

I don't really have any downside. Some times, just too busy as there is always work to be done at more than one client at times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I don't have anything to advise Management or leadership at Oracle at this time.
I don't have any feed back either.
Sorry!

    Freeze after Freeze

    Pros

    Smart people all around, if you actively look for them. Opportunity to move sideways into different teams and gaining new expertise. Chance to grow and complete your education with some real world skils and experience before going out to do something real on your own.

    Cons

    There is a hiring freeze, followed by spending cuts, followed by hiring freeze followed by spending cuts. The hands of lower management are tied in their ability to select their own team and they are forced to work with what they got, because they cannot replace employees who underperform. As a result, there is a lot of slackers all around who just coast on the fact that it is better for the manager to have some half done work out of them than to have nobody to replace them. Getting the tools required to do your job can be quite hard and you have to know the right people. The procurement system is difficult. Getting a monitor above 17" or non-refurbished computer is just hard to do. Replacing 5 year old computer with 3 year old refurbished one is not savings, but insane waste of resources. All this results in so much wasted time and inefficiency that Oracle could probably do the same job with half the people if they actually motivated them and gave them the right tools.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give managers more leeway in replacing employees. Approve specific headcount instead of each individual hire. You pay for employee time orders of magnitude more than for tools of trade.

    Great company, incompetent managers

    Pros

    Exposure to many technical areas

    Cons

    There is no growth. Managers spend more time in creating chaos (divide and conquer?) than doing the right things. This particularly applies to the Santa Clara location, which was the previous Sun campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A reorg is necessary to put the right leaders in the hardware business. The old boys network from Sun actually makes it difficult for the company to succeed.
