I worked at Oracle

Pros

Training sessions where excellent. Constantly learning new technology and techniques. Never a dull moment. Benefits were excellent. Smart people working next to you.

Cons

Long hours where at times the team had to work overtime so the Senior VP made his numbers for the quarter. Everyone was not treated equally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think the executive team is doing an excellent as witnessed with a high stock value and have made some smart acquisitions.

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    If Oracle keeps SUN products and combine their Software bundle, It would be a great start.
    Exadata is catching up.
    Still long ways to go,

    Cons

    Very new to the company. They could definitely handle the HDS relationship better, as we
    support people have no clue. Customer knows more than us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing now

    I worked at Oracle

    Pros

    Looks good on resume. I can see no other reason to work for them.

    Cons

    1) Meet Grinder
    2) Leadership at VP level has no understanding of what makes employees productive
    3) Employees are numbers, not people
    4) You can make money, but it is not worth it
    5) 20% of the employees are making all the money, while everyone else starves
    6) Territories are not thought out correctly
    7) Morale sucks to say the least
    8) Management leads with fear instead of encouragement
    9) Management is very arrogant and often do not listen to employees
    10) too much red tape and politics
    11) too much micromanagement
    12) too many products to sell and customers are confused
    13) There are no restrictions for customers to use the software, so sales folks have to always give the customers the bad news that they are out of compliance running software without paying for it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Kick out all low level management and start from scratch.
