    Pros

    It is a nice place to work. The direct management is great. The technology is awesome. Flexible working hour. Recommend to work at GoldenGate.

    Cons

    The upper management does not have close control of the entire company. There is some politics going on in the company.

    I worked at GoldenGate Software full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good salary
    - Big company stability
    - Core product was really remarkable once it was customized for a customer

    Cons

    Tech:
    - C codebase for core product was mostly an un-maintainable mess, so lots of consulting dollars made as part of any sale. Good for biz, but painful to the soul of any developer working on the code.
    - No clear direction on anything.
    - Big company culture killed the mom and pop software culture from the early 2000s

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are now part of Oracle. You don't care about any outside advice. Have fun!

    Pros

    Good place to work in San Francisco. The company possessed a strong technology and a good business that was model gaining which was gaining momentum.

    Cons

    Although competent management, information sharing was not a strong point. I think employees wanted to know more about what was going on, but free flow of information was not a priority prior to the Oracle purchase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share more information about how the company was doing.
