    Pros

    You get to work with some bright people and you get plenty of knowledge about product internals, databases in my specific case.

    Cons

    Oracle Support - where I worked is terribly out dated with respect to silicon valley compensation trends. It therefore does not attract the brightest and best talent around. The appraisal system is also more egalitarian in design so those who do not pull their weight have little to be concerned about while the top performers have little to look forward to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Product Support can be a HUGE differentiator. Stop thinking of Support and Support employees as second class corporate citizens and truly invest in rebuilding the organization with fresh management first.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours. Good benefits. Great, very smart co-workers. I like that Oracle promotes local citizenship and environmental causes.

    Cons

    The organization is so big that your opinions don't count and there is a lot of "right sizing" after organizations are brought into the Oracle world. There is no such thing as salary increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more incentives for people to work across organizations.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
