Pros

A terrific company with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow within a department or division. Plenty of opportunities. This company has all the excellent benefits of a large and well run corporation. I would recommend to my friend to apply and work for Oracle.

Cons

I don't have anything negative to say.

    Pros

    Oracle is "comfortable", and probably a reasonable place to work if you enjoy a more rigid and straightforward environment.

    Cons

    Oracle has become so large that they are incapable of fostering innovation within the company. They have transitioned into the standard "acquire and assemble" mentality of large companies faced with this problem. The result is an environment where engineers are not valued for their ideas or ability to drive innovation, but rather viewed as replaceable cogs in a ruthless business machine. Management makes broad decisions based on business metrics without understanding the technical challenges, and prevents individual engineers from having a say in the direction of the product or company. Support organizations, from recruiting to HR to IT, intrinsically suppress individuality and culture to create a monotonous business-focused monoculture.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your engineers and provide a path for them to impact product direction and drive innovation. They are likely smarter than you.
