    Former Employee - Global Procurement, Travel & Disbursements in Rocklin, CA

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work / life balance is paramount and primary driver for anyone that would want to work there. Great place to check in, do good work, and check out. With reasonable intelligence you can work a straight 40 and meet or exceed expectations.

    Cons

    Very limited opportunity to develop professionally. They have already invented the wheel, so they need people that simply maintain the functional operations. The only opportunity arises with executive change over - which is fairly often - which affords those in the 'circle' the opporunity to effectuate incremental change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a key talent program to incentivize, reward and retain true talent.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are hands down one of if not the best in the industry.
    They pay for your smart phone service plan.
    On site Gym, free soda, juice & water, fuse ball, ping pong table and pool table

    Cons

    Red tape and lots of it. Overloaded with so much information (emails, word & excel docs, shortcuts, links & accounts) on hire you don't know where to start. New hire training material is non existent. It is a sink or swim environment. Do not expect to join and bring change or even improvements. Status quo is the name of the game. It is all about tickets!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers have no business being a manager. Just because they have been there so long doesn't mean they have the skills to be a manager.
