Company sucks when it comes to compensation for employees

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Flexibility. Although they expect about 60 hours of work in a 40 hour week.

Cons

Bad management. Seems they promote people that are incompetent. You will work many hours and never get compensated. The company is very cheap. You can walk on water, or exceed expectations and never receive raises or bonuses. They treat their employees like cattle. Just a number and if you can't do all the hours or work, they will get someone cheaper to do it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some management classes in discrimination under your belt. Treat employees well, and they will work for you. Don't give them raises or bonuses? Then the work ethic goes away.

    Pros

    Great work flexibility allowing employees to work from home, or work remotely.

    Cons

    Compensation is not very competitive comparing with other large corporations in Silicon Valley.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It' would be nice to enforce employee diversity rather than seeing a majority of the employees are originated from one single foreign country.

    Current Employee - Support Sales Representative in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, great benefits, competitive pay. Job security is huge too. Employees are rarely let go... Even if they should be.

    Cons

    This place breeds complacency. The employee make-up is a mixed bag due to the countless acquisitions and therefore a company culture doesn't really exist. If you're looking for a place to become employee number xxx thousand and get lost in the shuffle, this is the place for you. If you're ambitious and have professional drive, go somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent and promote from within. So many great employee get ignored, and ultimately quit, because management is terrified about mentoring/training qualified employees only to be replaced by said employees.
