Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Redwood City, CA

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

Pros

If you land in the right spot, you can work on cool technologies with people from all over the world. The bosses I have had have been very hands-off and let you get your work done.

Cons

A VERY top-down company. You are expected to follow your "marching orders" without question. All projects are designed for maximum repeatability, so don't expect be creative and come up with new ideas. Also, don't expect raises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Could you share a little of the 14 BILLION Oracle makes in a fiscal quarter with those of us down here rowing the boat?
