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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Pay's well, lots of potential opportunities

    Cons

    As a sales rep, over 50% of my time was spent internally fighting for a place in deals, fighting to make sure I got paid ..etc.

    Pros

    It was tolerable when support was able to telecommute.

    Cons

    It has become increasingly micro-managed. There is no longer the flexibility to work from home. Raises are few and FAR between. There are no cost of living raises. VERY stressful. Rarely hires in the US. Poor employee morale.
