Current Employee - Software Engineer in Redwood City, CA
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Redwood City, CA

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Financially very solid. Have some very clear product strategy. Good compensation and benefit.

Cons

Very fragmented - typical to any firms that have grown mainly through acquisition. Team spirit and member quality vary significantly. One team's dev lead won't survive as a regular engineer in another team. Have to use the worst version control system ever (ade - yuck). CEO is generating some news mostly very saucy and flamboyant. The industry hates us.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sigh.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Independence, Great opportunities to self-learn, brand name

    Cons

    Bench is not tolerated, seldom meet people at work, sometimes one can work and retire for managers without ever seeing them in person, a consultant is always a resource and can be laid-off during bench without any attention paid to their skillsets or contributions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the skillsets, help consultants cross-train in skills, meet people in person once in few months, treat people as people and not as programmed robots !

    Current Employee - Management in Santa Clara, CA

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

    Pros

    Excellent process/structure. Good work life balance. Decent benefits. Talented Engineers. Very Professional. If you are looking for a organized, structured environment this is the place for you. If you want a start up environment with no direction and chaos don't come here.

    Cons

    Work environment not too exciting. Teams that I worked with were nice & very professional however, the work environment is a bit dull. It really depends on which team you end up with and who you are managed by. Not many perks and salary is pretty bad.
