    Pros

    The company runs its business well and its acquisition strategy has helped diversify the software portfolio. The company generally treats its employees well.

    Cons

    The company's tight control of costs means compensation is merely OK. Bonuses are rare and raises are slim. The technology stack they use for developing software is dated and the development process is glacial.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks. Always playing conservative will hurt the company in the long run.

    Pros

    Good people if you are under good management, decent pay if you are in the right position/group, making a difference, Oracle is the industry standard for DB technology

    Cons

    Huge company can result in people competing to do your job. Comp and bonuses are spotty--the company does not recognize loyalty or company longevity. Businesses outside DB are suffering and are not agile enough to respond to market demands.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people to really build better products.
