I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great work environment, great work-life balance, can work from home, no overtime, low pressure, teammates are usually great, lots of different opportunities to work with multiple technologies and products, offers a lot to learn.

Cons

Pay is usually way bellow market average, health benefits are very good but expensive, hardly any cash bonus, no stock units (only options), HR is almost useless.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow average market pay more closely to keep and attract the best professionals.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Hillsboro, OR
    Former Employee - Program Manager in Hillsboro, OR

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people

    Still some interesting technical challenges if you're working on the right products

    Cons

    Most of Operations management are not competent. They try to hide it by micro-management and intimidation. There are WAY too many Directors and VPs in the organization.

    Little to no pay raises for the worker bees, no real appreciation or recognition either.

    Opportunities for advancement are hard to come by.

    Extremely bureaucratic, lots of internal inertia

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It wouldn't do any good - I tried!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
