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

Pros

They generally do not ask for or require overtime on a regular basis. Just do your job well enough and you will be OK

Cons

Corporate security and political posturing is stifling and makes it painful to be as productive as you would like to be

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should put a little bit of trust in your employees, learn to communicate, and try to provide a reason for employees to be more motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle is OK to be for a few years then get out. Difficult place to work with the type A's and manager with zero people skills, and politically maneuvering and back stabbing. Too much political, good ole boy networks. Who you know is more important than what you know and your performance. No teamwork, no pay raises, no collaboration. management needs to treat its valuable people as assets, and not disposables.
