    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products, excellent people.

    Cons

    The new MD has all but ruined the organisation. Territories were changed in Q3 of the financial year creating absolute chaos. Back office is completely broken.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your non thought through changes have significant impact.

    Pros

    Challanging, broad technology available, wide market appeal, bigger company now from a few years ago, much better brancd than years ago.

    Can get lost in big company. Too highly structured and process driven

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve on managing employees personally as people. Recognise no one is perfect and receive feedback favourably.

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    If you have the right accounts and the right product you can make a lot of $$$

    Cons

    Just about everything. Zero alignment between business units. Unbelievably hostile atmosphere. Constant political infighting and back stabbing. Territories are very unfairly allocated. Useless management - all they do is forecasting using excel. Culture of management by fear. Hated by most customers. Pure focus on revenue zero focus on the customer. Ridiculous internal processes. It can take weeks to issue a quote. Zero pay increases. The salary you come in on is what you will get for life.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like humans!!

    Pros

    Becoming highly geared to autonomous self sufficient on system, process, business system. One Stop Office.

    The multiculturism that is not captured, becomes segregation.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, Competitive Salary, Work Life Balance, Travel Opportunities, Plenty Employee Benefits in align with other vendor companies, Less Internal Politics

    Cons

    Almost no training for the consulting staffs so it depends on the individual to learn skills by themselves although the materials are freely available in internal sites, Salary Increases are not aligned to inflation, Promotions are rare and happens on favourisms

    Advice to Management

    Please train consulting staffs if you want to succeed and Promote people based on skills & contribution

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A huge place with some of the smartest brains. Plenty of technologies to learn. A place where you can develop both technical and business skills. A huge plus is Oracle's work flexibility. As long as you get your job done no one will ask why you are not showing face in the office.

    Cons

    Aggressive selling to the effect that some customers start hating Oracle. Plenty of politics being a large organisation with different LoBs with their own agendas. If you are not part of a core team that deals with high-end solutions no one will care about you do.

    Advice to Management

    Culture needs to change to include all, no matter what part of the business they are in. More TLC to customers
