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

I worked at Oracle full-time (less than a 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.

    Current Employee - Practice Manager in Minneapolis, MN

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

    Pros

    Full Benefits Package
    3 weeks vacation after 3 years
    Flexible work schedule
    Work from hom

    Cons

    So much work to do don't have time for vacation
    Salary increases less than inflation
    Little recognition of hard work by management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Safra, perhaps you should rethink how you allocate focal pools -- allocating salary increases that are below the rate of inflation encourages the best to leave Oracle, leaving the ones that don't have better options behind.
