I have been working at Oracle full-time (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

    Good people if you are under good management, decent pay if you are in the right position/group, making a difference, Oracle is the industry standard for DB technology

    Cons

    Huge company can result in people competing to do your job. Comp and bonuses are spotty--the company does not recognize loyalty or company longevity. Businesses outside DB are suffering and are not agile enough to respond to market demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people to really build better products.
