Current Employee - Senior Engineer in Redwood Shores, CA

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

Pros

very large orgn to cut your teeth on - if your a jr engineer and need the experience.

Cons

culture is very political with a lot of inept and unethical mgmt. a great deal of mgmt only cares about their bonus and want nothing to do with innovation or supporting employees. if your not politically connected, you will get nowhere or worse.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

top to bottom overhaul of mgmt. way too many politicians. think more long term instead of the current quarter. strengthen R&D, try innovation - instead of thinking you can simply buy it off the shelf.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Nice people, free coffee and free beverages. Work from home is actually quite good.

    Cons

    No salary increase, not even after excellent performance review. Inflation compensation? forget that too.
    New ideas are not easily accepted. Slow in the innovation process. Security policy too tight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay salary and pay attention to your employees, they will move on
