    Pros

    Very flexible works hours/location Very good side benefits (good, cheap cafeterias, gym, discounts at restaurants etc)

    Cons

    Working as a coder in Oracle can be depressing. The developers there tend to be sub-par. Management randomly cancels whole products, not just projects. Late night calls to India can be thoroughly frustrating as a) you can't hear them b)they can't hear you and c) the developers in India are generally completely useless

    Advice to Management

    Fire about 80% of your development staff

    Pros

    The managers here are very direct, and senior management has a vision for where the company should go. They are smart, driven people. If you like a demanding place to work this is the place.

    Cons

    You have to take your career in your hands. Find a mentor. The company re-orgs every six months it seems, so who is in control in middle management is hard to figure out.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more.
