I worked at Oracle as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

I was given a good position and good pay (even though it was through a temp agency), and the job title was above what I was expecting.

Cons

The people are unfriendly to newcomers, and the working environment is just depressing. People really don't like their jobs and there's a high turnover rate. Even though everyone's hours are supposedly 9-5, people were late all the time and left early. My first day, no one knew that I was starting, and one person thought I was just interviewing. My boss had a family emergency but no one bothered to tell me so I was just sitting around all day.
The rest of the team was rude and unwelcoming, and they feigned interest only to take advantage of me later. When I shared my ideas with an individual, they took credit for them at the next staff meeting. Overall, it's just an unhappy and toxic place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do a thorough sweep of the departments and weed out everybody that causes such a negative atmosphere.

    Pros

    They work very hard to teach clients how to do business, create valuable business and give boss a lot of bonus, besides, better than minimum salary.

    Cons

    Chart a log of fees for better than minimum salary. good people, ceo need improve his knowledge of the world, especially the developing world and people.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, good insurance

    Cons

    Intensely political, slow and tedious. Spend a decade there, and you may just move the needle .1%.
