I have been working at Oracle

Pros

Car park is free
Work from home

Cons

Working for Oracle is hugely ike living and working in Kafka's Castle.
The institution is so bureaucratic.
Management is top down with little communication going back up the chain.
Suggestions how the business should be run are not welcomed.
Management cares little for the staff. You are treated like robots.
Promotions are non-existent or they are meaningless job title changes. Don't expect a payrise. You won;t get one.
Do not expect to be treated with any respect in this firm.
It's very depressing and demoralising working here.
Do not expect any payrises, not even for inflation.
Oracle has bought up all the competition so there's little prospect of being able to move to another employer. They have a huge monopoly.
This organisation needs a full and proper trade union to shake it up.
There's no proper training. Do not expect to advance in your skills unless you are able to self-learn.
Although skills, knowledge and experience are essential to this job, this employer has no idea how to value them.
Management at all levels is incompetent. There are too many levels of management, staffed with people who do nothing, contribute nothing positive to the way the work is done. They add no real value.
If you work in the EU expect that this employer is actively looking to offshore your job to a cheaper land. For this reason they really don't care anything about you or your contributions and ability. They want rid of you as fast as possible. You will not be replaced after you leave in this country.
Oracle considers procedure to be more important than technical skill or knowledge.
Teamworking is poor.
There is no social activity. No Xmas parties, no nothing
Most people are depressed. Most are resigned to the awful fate that has befallen them
Altogether a huge negative experience working here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Resign. Let someone competent do your job

    Pros

    work life balance. Compensation is ok. Opportunity to explore many technology. It is the place if you enjoy enjoy framework culture.

    Cons

    No pay revision, Framework culture. Pay structure is biased . Campus hire fresher & lateral with 2-3 years of experience get the same package.
