Current Employee - Sales Consultant

I have been working at Oracle full-time (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

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and location.

    Cons

    I received good reviews from my managers but still had only one salary increase in six years. Clearly there is a huge gap here in terms of compensation/benefits/perks compared to other Bay area companies. You're always expected to overachieve but engineers receive little recognition. Immigration process is terribly slow. Because there are so many remote workers, it's hard to communicate even within your own team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Looks like you guys are getting all the money at the expense of hard working engineers!
