    I have been working at Oracle part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A big company that allows you flexibility in your work schedule.

    Cons

    Other than the upper management, Oracle does not take care of its employees. The culture does not recognize or reward employee performance. Management is not encouraged to build strong teams which are empowered. There are many layers of bureaucracy all designed to compartmentalize information and decision making. There is absolutely no information sharing with engineers. Even Senior Director level personnel are pretty powerless when it comes to budget or decision making. Having now worked there for nearly 4 years, I've lost any internal motivation to excel at Oracle. No one really cares.

    Also - Oracle mgmt is interested in selling the product that is there today. They are not interested in investing in the future on engineering products. Not interested in engaging with external bodies or cooperating with the community at large even if it is beneficial to Oracle's goals. Management is incapable of looking ahead - I doubt they are rewarded for such thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as adults and trust them to make decisions for the good of the company. An unempowered workforce is inefficient and unmotivated.Be open instead of "Father Knows Best" attitude. For heavens sake share the profits the company makes with those that help make it.
