    Pros

    Very telecommuting friendly company (for many positions, but not all). Lots of very smart employees -- at the lower levels, they are as good as you will find everywhere else. Most are very committed to providing great products and services for our customers.

    Cons

    Many execs love to micromanage their teams -- very morale-killing to the people working for them. The culture of Oracle can be incredibly oppressive -- we want to do the right thing (for our customers and for fellow employees), but often we have to fight our own management to do the right thing. This can be very depressing, and over time makes work not at all fun.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing. Start letting your great employees use their brains and do great work.

  2. Bad culture
