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

    Pros

    World recognized technology software company

    Cons

    Various business units and divisions work in silos and not together
    Very few opportunities for individual contributors to move into management
    Promotions (very few) are very political. It depends on who the boss likes the most
    Short term career planning is weak and just a check list once a year. Long-term (1+) career planning and mentoring does not exist.
    Sales / Sales Consulting is always restructuring and reorganizing. Intentionally done to clean house

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Oracle

    Pros

    - There is nothing good about the company .Employees are treated as slaves

    Cons

    - Worst team experience
    - No foresight from Managers and Senior managers
    - Team members are extremely disrespectful and judgmental of one another
    - All the expectations normal as one grows in experience were thrown out
    - No explanations given to actions requested as a team
    - Management works with our way or highway thinking and there is no sense of reality what so ever.They behave as though , their reports are useless
    - No hearing of problems , no control over the professionalism expected in a team situation
    - If the managers think that they can do all the work , then they should let the teams go and work themselves

    All in all a filthy / lousy environment as a team . Total stagnation !!!!

    *** HAVING A BRAND NAME DOES NOT ENSURE CONTINUITY AND SUCCESS **
    Very Very bad company to work for - BEWARE

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - A review of all the upper management in various departments needs to be carried out
    - Would like to ask why if there was a change expected and spoken to by the member to manager not properly actioned - why was the report not made aware . PEOPLE MAKE A COMPANY AND NOT COMPANY MAKING PEOPLE
    - Please come down from the utopic world and check what is happening . Management is very partial and is holding things against members of the teams that report to them
    - Have a uniform view of policies and wake up to the new generation - not 15th and 16th century thinking
    - One advice - Employees with experience are platinum and no number of new hires at lower salary will be able to compensate for them.
    - Think about salary grades. and would keeping employees for the same level for 6 + years makes sense

    ALL THE ABOVE DO NOT MAKE A GOOD COMPANY !!! . The banners that say we carry everything and care for employees is a hodge wash and total lies

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
