I worked at Oracle

Pros

Decent work-life balance. Great health club on campus for employees at headquarters. Freedom to work from home. Opportunity to travel internationally.

Cons

Pay is below market. Bonuses are stingy. Stock option grants are small and infrequent while Larry and his cronies give themselves millions every year. No concept of professional development. No company events whatsoever (i.e. holiday party, summer picnic).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

One thing I always gave Oracle credit for was that they were at least genuine. The company doesn't care about its employees -- and they never claim to.

    I worked at Oracle

    Pros

    Management on the engineering side seems smart and capable. Product architectures and direction seems very well thought out, and was clearly communicated.

    Cons

    Acquisition of the company I worked for was handled very poorly. Very little communicated to employees, leading to fear, uncertainty and doubt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better upfront communication to employees of firms being acquired. This is especially important for key employees that you may not want to lose prior to (or just after) the deal closes.

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Fairly flexible work time, good for the resume, free tea (need to have 20 words but don't see more pros)

    Cons

    Poor retention policy, hard to find room for professional growth, stressful culture, low morale among people, success of a particular group is always averaged with the rest of the company resulting in lack of success appreciation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve corporate culture and retention policy
