I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Iracke (especially product development) is full of driven, results-oriented, type A people. If you're looking to grow your career and work hard, Oracle is the place for you.

Cons

If you're timid, easily offended, or not smart, Oracle is not the place for you!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the internal applications. They make doing routine administrative tasks (e.g. performance appraisals, virtual training, approving new hires, etc) really annoying.

    A stable, large company, with it's act together. They are number crunchers though.

    Pros

    Rock solid company. Job performance is usually rewarded. Trim-running company for how large it is. Lot of talent.

    Cons

    Can be stingy on raises. Know of several times where even top performers were not given a raise. The company depends on "dive and save" a bit much for my taste.

    Overpromise, Underdeliver, and blame the people at the bottom

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

    Pros

    - Rapaciously aggressive sales force that is pushed to promise anything to anyone for a buck keeps the pipeline full
    - As an industry standard DB, it keeps everyone's technical abilities up to speed
    - Good health insurance available (for now)

    Cons

    - no salary increases/bonuses for years
    - very little commitment by management for operational delivery, issues of responsibility or delivery can be unaddressed forever. Always time for "hair on fire" let's finally get some customer's issues addressed, absolutely no time to figure out why that always happens
    - lots of responsibility pushed down the management chain with absolutely no way for those at the bottom to affect any change or deliver what the customer expects. Which ends up with a lot of "it is some other team's fault" situations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit with the happy talk Senior Executive "Town Hall Meetings" - they simply emphasize just how little you understand of what is happening in operations. Perhaps actually talking to some of the people at the bottom of the chain might give you some reality insight.
