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

Pros

In the past ORACLE UGBU was a great place, was a great learning and provided real Team work, real winning spirit, strong growth and significant new client wins. There was strong entrepreneurial drive in the main theaters in US, EMEA, APAC and a strong commitment from the SVP, to the regional VP and every single member.

Cons

The senior management changed almost every 12month which created significant disruptions, created doubt and destroyed moral and performance of the teams. Furthermore current senior UGBU management is very egocentric - autocratic and is conducting hiring and promotions based on nepotism - favoritism rather than on merit and performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1st) Self-assessment of the senior management and their principles
2nd) Fostering a culture of trust, transparency and retaliation free communication
3rd) Recognizing performance and loyalty over favoritism and hypocrisy

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Generous 401k Matching
    Internal training opportunities
    On-site gym.

    Probably one of the most politically toxic environment in Silicon Valley. Managers back stab each other. To survive, everyone must be watching his back.
    Too many layers of management.
    Not innovative. Lots of legacy code.
