I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

* Work Life Balance is awesome, except for cases when you are working for a manager who doesn't understand what are the benefits of working for Oracle.
* A beautiful camps that is a landmark of Silicon Valley. It is very well maintained.
* Great Gymnasium.
* An aggressive CEO with a vision, a well defined market strategy, zeal to kill competition, and an innate capability of eeking out profit margins for the share holders.

Cons

* In many divisions of the business, employees are treated as resources, and not human beings.
* No culture to breed innovation from within Oracle. Innovation is happening at Oracle because of acquisition.
* Employees/Engineers have to create their own challenges, unless your division is under the focus of the office of the CEO.
* Teams stay together as a group for many many years. Hence no exposure to other team members with different skills.
* Managers typically lack skills to motivate and excite the teams and people. They work for themselves and promote themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not sure what to say... Culture starts from the top. Hopefully you can change it at your level.
