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

Pros

Good access to acquiring various skills and learning experiences. State of the art industry software applications. Beautiful campus, different on-campus dining options, awesome gym facility.

Cons

A lot of freedom/not enough structure. Some people are egotistical, arrogant, not receptive, unwilling to collaborate. Lots of focus on offshoring (e.g., india), which can sometimes cause managing work schedules to become quite demanding/challenging.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and flexibility. Perfect place for working mothers.
    Stable company - little to no management churn.
    Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Some people have not had any raise in years, almost no bonus despite good performance of the company. Upper management does not care about attrition. The company is slow moving and any small decision takes months and dozens of approvals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees. Be more in touch.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Big company resources are at your disposal if you can make a business case to the right person

    Cons

    Insular attitude, too much power in the hands of lawyers, not focused on market reality for individual products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Buying companies at the peak of their value and preventing them from further innovating is bound to fail at the point that fleeter competitors begin to eat your business out from under you.
