A great university; but reorgs galore!

Pros

A great university to work at: multiple divisions, groups and technologies all in one company: you can pick multiple hardware, software, application domains.

Cons

Reorgs and politics! Once you get into management, you tend to get sucked into the management politics! you never know who will be your manager next. Compensation is ok. But very little focus on employee engagement, training etc

Advice to Management

Become nimble and quick while being a large company or get eaten eaten up!

  1. At Oracle, you're either a shark or shark meat.

    Pros

    Great place to be if you want to work in a company that is the gorilla in its market segments. Very intrapreneurial.

    Cons

    Lots of politics up and down the management chain.


  2. Very limited opportunities for advancement

    Pros

    High name recognition of company. Good benefits

    Cons

    Employee policy handbook states that all internal moves are lateral in title and pay. Very difficult to advance career without leaving company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.
