Pros

Virtual work is a valuable commodity. Support from other colleagues (in my group and extended teams) is very good. Encyclopedia of information available online. Course work available. Oracle embraces good core values.

Cons

No raises... and attrition on the rise, you are losing top talent. Appreciate and reward your employees. Even more important, listen to what the employees say they need in order to be more productive, especially since there are fewer personnel doing far more work. Cumbersome, complicated, and confusing websites for employees does not help them get the resources/information they need in a timely manner.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If the CEO gave himself a raise, then the hard working employees deserve some recognition as well. There were 'silent' raises given out to a chosen few (as employees do talk to each other), but management denies this. Step out of the box and try products that you did 'not' acquire through Mergers and Acquisitions. You have to keep up with the (internet) times, and it's difficult to 'dig a ditch with a cocktail spoon.' Invest in tools to assist employees and not slow them down. With the lean support staff (and getting leaner), we need state-of-the-art, efficiency and agility from upper management to keep up with the times.

    Cutting edge technical work, behind a boring appearance

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The core technical division is populated with first-rate developers and some far-seeing computer scientists. The technical problems are as difficult as they come and the technical talent is first rate. (This probably does not apply to the great majority of the rest of the company.) Very fast moving for a large company once a direction/theme set by CEO.

    Cons

    The main product is a winner in its class and this leads to some complacency. Career growth limited.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunities exist for those willing to take control of their destiny. It is a self-service company when it comes to training, career advancement, and all other facets of work.

    Cons

    Loyalty is not rewarded with salary adjustments unless you really work your boss, get another job offer that can be countered, or threaten to leave. Cost cutting is part of the culture and every dollar spent is challenged at multiple levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up those purse strings.
