Stable but Uninspiring for the Masses

Senior Director (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

ProsWell managed company with a huge reach in its customer's IT organziations that offers a wide range of products and roles. Offers its senior managers competitive comp and freedom and good work / life balance for many mid and junior level roles

ConsDon't come to Oracle expecting to drive innovation or rapid advancement. For mid level and senior managers it's a highly political, surivial-of-the-fittest environment. For individual contributors you need to rely on a good manager to look after you. Raises and bonuses outisde of sales and engineering are rare so make sure you will be happy with your base salary .

Advice to Senior ManagementLarry and his execs are not looking for any advice but just in case - there is a lot of untapped creativity in the company. A conscious effort to reward initiative and fresh ideas would pay off.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Many of the internal software programs are very difficult to use… Advice to Senior Management: Work groups are much too silo'd, with no way to find overlapping or complimentary skills or missions. Teams with similar or overlapping functions are created… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Good platform for learning, and then taking it somewhere else to execute!

    Management (Former Employee) Redwood Shores, CA

    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros: You learn a lot - technically, functionally, industry practices. Great benefits, super gym. It's… Cons: Quite poor company culture - management by ridicule. Very low… Advice to Senior Management: The company might run more efficiently if you laid off 15-20% of the workforce that's just cruising or… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
