Former Employee - Senior Systems Administrator  in  Austin, TX
Former Employee - Senior Systems Administrator in Austin, TX

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.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Security, smart people, good health care benefits

    Cons

    Employees treated with zero trust or respect
    Company does well, executives get compensated massively; company does poorly, executives compensated masssively; either way, regular employees get zero raises, bonuses, or options

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like slaves. When the company does well, compensate employees accordingly.

    Pros

    Huge company, several problems to solve. Never worry about the next pay check. Everyone knows Oracle.

    Cons

    Inept management, zero support for lower level people. Everything is a power grab. No one in charge understands what's going on down the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle has a huge Windows server environment. Please start running that environment like a Windows server environment. STOP trying to use useless Linux tools to provision and manage the Windows environment.
