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

Pros

Good company to work for if you have a family. Flexible working hours. Good health insurance. (Sorry I know I have to make it a minimum 20 words but it is really hard to figure out any other pros...)

Cons

This company treats old employee very badly. I never receive a raise in the past four years. No bonus or anything related. There is no paid group lunch or dinner. No annual parties etc. Talented people leave frequently coz upper management do not value their contribute.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your loyal employees better than the new hires. Should give out annual raises at least to beat the inflation!

    Pros

    There is a large product portfolio and you do not have to know the products to make good money. All that is required is that you need to get a good territory and you need to call on purchasing and IT. There are no caps in the ROE (Rules of Engagement), Oracle's term for compensation plan. However, see below.

    Cons

    Oracle will frequently choose not to pay you if you blow out your numbers. If you do not like it, you can sue them. Oracle will decide after the fact, whether they want to pay you. It does not matter if this is legal in your state. They are bold, they play the numbers, they know the downsides to doing this, they do it all the time, and they benefit handsomely. If you sue, your contract requires arbitration which generally favors the Oracle because the arbitrator is paid by the company and they want repeat business. (Oracle does not get to choose the arbitrator). Cases will take 2 or more years and legal fees are very expensive.

    They frequently delay payment as well, while they think it over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.

    Pros

    Great people.
    Great products that are world class

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities, and stagnation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a focus on generating more Learning and Career Opportunities for employees.
    Cross training across products would help and would prevent employees getting stuck in silos.
