    Pros

    Good work life balance, challenging work, scope to contribute

    Cons

    Politics, slow and horrible HR, processes are outdated, idiots that came to company though aquisitions occupying mid management positions not providing room for growth and eating away project budget with zero value addition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get rid of parasite mid level managers who literally does nothing in the job. They just occupy those positions as a result of aqusitions, otherwise they would even clear the interview to get inside the company. This is really discouraging to hardworking developers and affects their growth very badly

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

    Pros

    Oracle has a complete portfolio - engineered systems - h/w and s/w tuned to work together. If you are a sales pro, you have a complete story for your elevator pitch which can get you in the door to many fortune 100 - 200 companies

    Cons

    Very large company which you are a number and you do not have much leverage to when a RIF comes your way. Not even the strongest internal network and keep your number from coming up. Oracle culture is straight forward, as a sales manager or sales rep you really do not have the ability to be entrepreneur like... business decisions are made in layers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your sales staff as they are the closest to your customer and consider to take their input seriously and move quicker in making decisions when customers request changes through your sales team.
