Very steep learning curve initially and fast paced environment, but once you acclimate, you can work anywhere!

I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great learning opportunity for an individual to learn a lot of different skills. This not only includes technology but also engaging and working with diverse groups of people.

Cons

Oracle acquired many companies over the years which lead to its growth fiscally and technically, which is good. However, the company's DNA changed, which was not always a good thing as different and often less competent employees joined the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to maintain the quality of your employees even through periods of stress.

    Former Employee - Oracle Direct Account Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at Oracle for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits of working at Oracle are many: Great resume builder, outstanding training, and gaining exposure to a very solid product portfolio. The pay is pretty decent, as are the benefits. After spending a year there, you will have the opportunity to move on outside the company, but the chances of moving up internally are few and far in between.

    Cons

    The work environment is extremely intense and often turns reasonable people into jerks - yelling and intimidation is common at the end of each quarter. Many seasoned, experienced employees leave due to the unreasonable amount of stress that exists as a result of too many VP's who constantly try to justify their existence and create a contentious relationship with the field AND customers. The prevailing view is that it's OK to frustrate and anger a customer, so long as the revenue is delivered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and ask yourself why there are so many VP's in OD? Why is the turnover so high? Why do you put ridiculous amounts of pressure on the first line managers? Why is HR constantly getting involved with this organization? If those questions are answered honestly, you are on the path to fixing the problems. Talk is cheap, but actions are not....

    Good Company to work for, cut throat competition internally between employees

    Pros

    Stable job, good salary, bonus

    Cons

    Very political organization. You have to be well connected or you can get mowed down by others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please do some employees review management too.
