    Aggressive, action oriented and exciting company. Middle management sucks! Not much innovation here but great execution!

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Good Pay. Stable Job. Aggressive and action oriented environment. Executive management is great.

    Cons

    Middle management sucks! Too many VPs and too much title inflation in the company. Product development is not assimilating the acquisitions well, while the sales and other sides of the business are doing a much better job handing acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is getting too big and the management pool is very poor. HR department does nothing but very basic stuff. People development is very poor. Good management does not exist in the company anymore. Apps product development organization has grown like weed with no justification. If software is commoditizing, we cannot see that in the way software development is managed in the company. If you want to aspire your company to be managed like GE, you better start reading Welch's and Bossidy's books because i cannot see any trace of those best practices in the company.

    Pros

    The technology is great. Good group of people.

    Cons

    Oracle seems to have lost focus once it started going on a buying spree. Too many disparate technologies to glue together in an unrealistic timeframe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not very good leadership skills.
