The most chaotic, unorganized company I have worked for

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Sales in Broomfield, CO
Current Employee - Sales in Broomfield, CO

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good benefits, People, the ability to work from home in some cases.

Cons

Internal processes are terrible, hard to negotiate through. Several departments for every step, not mapped out anywhere, flying blind, such a waste of time to try to figure it out for the first time. They consider themselves a self service company, meaning, don't ask for help, figure it out. People spend more time trying to figure out how to get something done then actually accomplishing anything. No decision making unless you are a global process owner who define all processes, no choices but to follow along, right or wrong. Small increases if anything. Big offshore outsourcer! No job security.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Caring about your people is the first step in managing!
