Pros

The actual work is good

Cons

Salary is the worst. Immediate managers spent too much time trying to lie about how good this is for you !!

Advice to Management

I understand your need to cut costs . But you keep the salaries of actual Engineers and Managers, but pay heavily for all director level people who lead almost retired lives . BAD ECONOMICS !

    Pros

    - Pays well
    - Giant company with limitless career growth and networking opportunities
    - Spend absurd amounts of money entertaining employees

    Cons

    - EXTREMELY metric driven. As a result, more time is spent trying to inflate numbers than actually creating business.
    - Spend absurd amounts of money entertaining employees
    - Aggressive sales mindset for everyone. Profit before customers. Get the sale at any cost.
    - At Oracle, Larry Ellison = God
    - Bottom line: If you are not at least a bit obsessed with making more money, I feel that Oracle will probably not be a good fit.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize customer service and customer care over numbers.
