I have been working at Oracle

Pros

Great place to work. Broad technology stack available. Management is great they aloow freedom of ideas. Now with Sun acquisition we will own Java. This is great for both oracle and java. This stock will do great.

Cons

Too much fire fighting. Need more project planning. need to give engineers more time for innovation. Benefits are ok. ESPP is not great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Oracle is a great place. But we need to slow down a bit. Employees could use bit more incentives. ESPP could be lot better.

    You can learn a lot, but it is not a long-term career move unless you have what it takes

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    It is a place were you can learn a great deal, management know there stuff, and the big name is on your side. In sales, customers want to talk with you.

    Cons

    It is very political and it is up or out. You do more selling internally and than externally. If you don't drink the koolaid and adapt to Oracle's culture don't expect to be there more than 1-2 years. There are two ways to make it at Oracle 1) you manager likes you a lot or 2) you hit your number and have the metrics to back it up

    Pros

    Things are not rigid hence you can make your own rules and ways on getting things done as long as it is within the GAP (Generally accepted policies) of Oracle. Of course it has to be legal and ethical, and follow the revenue recognition principle. The point is that you are not micro-managed to do your job and you can have full control (Depending on managers but I see it happening a lot of times) on how you want to do your job.

    Cons

    You can get fired as easy as dropping your pants. Only performance counts in Oracle and there is no such thing as being too senior to be fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please review your pay policies. Some of them don't make sense especially to those who are new in your organization.
