Pros

High quality professionals, lots of opportunities for growth and internal/international transfers, good training, good pay. Great place to meet very diverse, smart people and build an excellent network.

Cons

Tough culture, little to no mentoring, sink or swim. Not a people oriented environment. Expected to outperform and overachieve constantly as part of the normal job description. Not easy to achieve promotions or salary increases. Client work could be very challenging, and internal cross-LOBs alignment and coordination will be much more difficult than client facing work.

Advice to Management

Invest more in key people. Succession planning. Communicate more and allow more channels for feedback from the field.

    Pros

    - Oracle is a very large company and as such has decent benefits - Despite what many report they do pay "well" - If you are lazy this is a good place to hide and not have to work terribly hard

    Cons

    - Toxic culture - Stiffing for innovators - Company is run by bankers, not engineers - Company values management over rank and file (e.g. bonus's paid to exec only during hard times)

    Advice to Management

    Break up the super large organization into manageable pieces that can actually develop new software. Buying smaller companies and destroying them is not helping the staff or customers. This practice does help the stockholders (e.g. Larrry E) so I suspect it is not going change. However, other companies have shown that innovation can be profitable (salesforce) and it was only 15 years ago when Oracle could actually innovate.
