Current Employee - Principal Technical Support Engineer in New York, NY
Current Employee - Principal Technical Support Engineer in New York, NY

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule
Encouraged to Work from home
Good work/life balance
My team is a great team, but others, not so much.

Cons

In 12 years I have gotten about 4 raises.
Best thing that happened to me was when they switched us to hourly from salaried and now we are compensated for the overtime - which is expected.
People that leave are rarely replaced, so the work load is at times, extreme.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to make things more automated and start concentrating on keeping the employees happier so they stay.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance, flexible working hours

    Cons

    Career development not well defined. Need to battle for every salary raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much hierarchy in the company. We need more ICs and less management.

    Current Employee - Principal Member of Technical Staff in Redwood City, CA
    Current Employee - Principal Member of Technical Staff in Redwood City, CA

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work, good projects, technically strong colleagues, a lot to learn everyday

    Cons

    Some old style managers still have issues even with few work from home days.
    Some politics.
    Salary is slightly below industry standard and raises/bonuses are only once per year (if at all) and that too amount is usually on the lower side of 0-10%.
    ESPP is not attractive at all.
    No standards on team events. Some seem to have frequent outings, birthday celebrations, food for team, ice-creams; Other teams have almost none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make ESPP more attractive. Reward employees for good work with higher bonuses and fair salary increments. Reduce the salary gap between employees of similar strengths.
