Good place to work, but hard to get into, and little salary growth

Pros

The benefits at Oracle are decent. Your job satisfaction will depend upon the group you are in. The hiring process is long and cumbersome, but once at Oracle, you have many opportunities for changing positions and groups. Your salary is however unlikely to keep up with the market.

Cons

This is a large company and it is hard at times to find out who is doing what. Incentives and compensation growth opportunities are depending upon the group in which you are. Some groups are well taken care of while others are not. It is important to be hired with the highest salary you can get. It is common for employees to get their salary readjusted upon being re-hired (after leaving the company for a few years).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are no corporate-wide program for the retention of top talent. Managers are given a bonus pool for their entire team, and try to use this pool as best they can to reward top-performers. Very little people leadership with top executives. LJE is not a very inspirational person...

    Pros

    If you can get into a management level or higher, you probably will get paid a lot to do nothing. HQ has a nice gym.

    Cons

    They don't care about turnover, especially lower level employees. Every department is like a different company. Some departments are good and people like their group, most departments are bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create job rotation and care about turnover.

    The minute Oracle bought Sun Microsystems, it was all downhill from there.

    Pros

    Great place to sit back and do nothing.

    Cons

    Office culture is bad. It is a volatile environment with back-stabbing people. Poor managers that outsource and so worried about the bottom line, as passed down from Larry, that it ruined the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring back caring into the people of the company.
