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.

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

    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
