    Former Employee - Systems Administrator in Broomfield, CO

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company, well known software as well as hardware (Sun Microsystems acquisition). Vast array of technologies to play with.

    Cons

    No real opportunity for advancement. Pay is below standard. I interviewed for many open internal positions and got accepted only to be told that I could not get a pay raise or pay grade change. Example: Applied for Sys admin 4 position, aced the interview and was the number 1 pick out of the other interviewees; Was offered the position at a much lower pay grade. They would rather bring in someone from the outside and pay them more than promote someone from within. It's business that makes no sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow internal advancement to higher recs. I interviewed for many open internal recs and got accepted only to be told that I could not accept the paygrade offer. Basically they wanted me to move into a Sys Admin 4 position but accept the same pay as my lower paygrade.
