Demonstrate, adapt, make right friends and be happy.

Software Development Manager (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

Pros- Software powerhouse, opportunity to work with various technologies
- Stability, global diversification
- Focus towards product and customers
- Great sales team
- Good employee benefits
- Work-life balance (good company to raise family with)
- Management is usually supportive of lateral transitions within the groups (e.g. from Manager to individual contributor and vice-versa)
- Good gym
- Has potential for growth

Cons- One should always join the current firefight - Oracle has plenty - if one needs management attention. Sound workers should have made the choice to stay on without being noticed or appreciated.
- Technology focused, management sees no value of professional degrees, like MBAs, MS etc., once you start working at Oracle. Though most manager will support the partial time-off required to do part-time studies.
- Oracle does not tap into excellent social networks its employees are exposed to. (this choice is partly due to stricter security standards)
- There are plenty of re-orgs and it can get pretty turbulent in some groups due to various acquisitions in past and possibly in future. So, if one is joining now, stay adaptive and embrace the change. You may see multiple managers in coming years.

Advice to Senior Management- Value your 80% bottom workers, not just top 20%. They are keeping the bottom line cost under control and giving predictable output.
- When you distribute award to most visible person who manages to fight off escalation, also give award to a person who keeps things under control.
- Create more employee harmony and team events. Due to limited opportunity of growth, there is a lot of internal politics and back-biting among mid managers or among people who are management hopefuls.
- Due to acquisition based innovation the drive to write white-papers, doing something cool, experimenting is going away. Bring it back. When we are done buying everybody possible, it will be time to find internal ability to innovate.
