I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Well 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

Cons

Don'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 ManagementAdvice

Larry 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.

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

    Pros

    You learn a lot - technically, functionally, industry practices. Great benefits, super gym.

    It's easy to maintain a 10a to 5p (or 4p) work life if you want to.

    Cons

    Quite poor company culture - management by ridicule. Very low comp.
    No focus on career management for top performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company might run more efficiently if you laid off 15-20% of the workforce that's just cruising or treating this as a job till retirement. Oh and stop demeaning your people: most of them are pretty smart.
