Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Redwood Shores, CA

I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Health benefits are probably par none.
Good gym at HQ
Able to work remotely.
Dull and slow pace of work makes for a relaxed work environment.

Cons

No salary reviews ever
Paltry bonus. Think 1-2% if you are lucky.
Limited opportunities to advance your career.
Boot licking and brown nosing are prerequisites to get any work done.
Political cronyism is rampant especially in the marketing and product management ranks.
Businesses operate in silos. Cross-silo collaboration is non existent.
Its all about who you know and how many asses you can kiss.
Managers manage up because they know there is little they can do for their subordinates.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Self-starter culture for true entrepreneurials

    Cons

    Too much self-service - company has taken way too far. Unfriendly to acquistions and outsiders

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle should become more family friendly and reward risk takers with salary and promotions.
