Oracle can be a good place to work.

Senior Manager (Former Employee) Belmont, CA

ProsFor certain levels of Engineers, hourly compensation instead of salary makes up for the often time of long hours. Inconsistent middle management and the challenge of transitioning to ITIL V3 is causing a lot of confusion within the IT team but this also creates opportunities for qualified people. Although there is generally little career guidance, I felt that one could create one's own program for advancement and if the individual was good at what they did, opportunities are often available. Basically one can write your own ticket. Telecommuting is supported and the tools work well.

ConsSome poor middle management and poor leadership within the upper middle management tier. Depending upon department, raises were seldom seen or were so small that they were almost an insult many .

Advice to Senior ManagementAs far as overall opinion, Senior Management has guided the company to a very successful position. The use of acquisition instead of all internal development was a great move. For years Oracle APPS were pretty poor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
