Pros

work life balance is amazing. You can crawl, walk, run, whatever you like. Of course, if you work hard you will be rewarded. The HQ campus is amazing, probably the most beautiful of all Bay Area companies. Thy gym is super awesome, and food is top notch. All product development teams have a program for recent college grads called Oracle College Hires (OCH). Free trips to Reno, white water rafting, free lunches, social mixers with all other college hires, wine and beer socials, cruises and crazy events every week! As a college grad, you will know more than a 100 people just like you within the first month. Great program to keep college grads here, amazing perks and something you would never expect at a B2B Enterprise company.

Cons

Incremental raises are small. If you want to get a big salary hike, consider switching teams / rolls. Job title and Salaries aren't correlated. The best best to getting a big salary is to leave and join back. Recent hires get a very competitive salary. which is larger than that of people with 3-5 years experience!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Oracle still has the Big Giant Enterprise company image even though a lot of cool stuff is coming out of the assembly line. Try and fix that with cooler technologies. Fusion Tap, Cloud and Apps is a move in the right direction.

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent products, great culture (competitive, energetic, work hard play hard)

    Cons

    Tons of red tape, an abundance of resources but hard to navigate, lack of investment in internal IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut your compensation by 25M each and spend some more money to leverage the solutions you sell and do it right.
