Pros

Oracle is a very slow paced working place. Its release cycle normally goes by half a year. For people who want to balance work and life, it might be a good place.

Cons

No career development at all for new hires. Performance appraise was never transparent. Actually there is not a performance review at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Oracle today doesn't do much cutting-edge development. Instead of pursuing top-notch talents, Oracle should probably leave them for those more aggressive employers who can better use those gifted young graduates.

    Pros

    financially well run, bright engineers, aggressive sales and overall industry leader

    Cons

    Human resources is an amateur operation. SR. VP HR was a sales gal previously who got promoted on politics. So, the HR organization is extremely political all the way down. need to suck up and primarily please the HR mgt. team to succeed. Promotion based upon loyalty and favoritism and minimally on competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a real SR. VP of HR to match the engineering competence of the business.

    I worked at Oracle

    Pros

    Good learning , good buildings , good architects, database rocks (but the market is moving towards open source products). Decent cafeterias and the gym ofcourse

    Cons

    Not much to say except that every group is very different and has their own set of rules within this huge organization. The company thrives on Larry's antics and the database sales.
