Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Redwood Shores, CA

I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of resources, lots of opportunities to learn new technologies, endless amount of work, high chance of getting your work into product, not asked to work on narrow focus, good medical benefits

Cons

hardly any raises, some of my colleagues were getting paid well below the industry average for their skill level, lots of take-overs and mergers leading to politics in upper levels of management and cause endless reorganizations. culture is very focused on business and bottom line.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

share the wealth. Perks to employees like a gym and good food at the expense of a low salary discriminate against the employees' families.

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

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, stable company.

    Cons

    Hard work, loyalty, knowledge are not rewarded. Raises and bonuses have been dismal for many years, and the latest round was an insult. At the same time, aggressive schedules have ratcheted up stress and pressure. It's getting more and more political, and teamwork is affected. Top management does not seem to realize, or doesn't care, that in a software company, most of the knowledge is in people's heads, and when they leave, it leaves with them. The longer you stay, the further behind you fall in terms of compensation as compared to the market. People are leaving, but I guess to top management, not enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the wealth. Reward your employees. There should be more vacation days.

    Pros

    Excellent fellow employees, challenging and financially rewarding. Would always receive resources for new projects and new decisions.

    Cons

    Projects soon became monotonous and boring. With so many employees, you become niched into a certain role which becomes boring. Also, very political between departments and regions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less middle management.
