Stable company with conservative design

User Experience Designer (Current Employee)
Redwood City, CA

ProsSlow-moving pace means a great work-life balance. Also Oracle compensates very well, both with salary and other benefits.

ConsThere is a lot of political inertia here, it's a conservative culture, and ultimately this is a developer-driven organization. Designs always get cut and scaled back. Truly creative designs are unlikely to get built and shipped here. You will end up spending at least as much time on organization and project logistics/management as you do on design.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire some real project managers who can get software shipped. Expect more from the developers and don't let them slack off spending months on code architecture. And (of course) put more development resources into the UI. Don't prioritize functionality over usability every time. Without usability, the functionality may as well not even be there.
