    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)


    Products are mostly pretty good
    Plenty of chance to work with new stuff
    Brand has kudos
    Variety of challenge
    If you find your niche & your contribution is valued, it can be rewarding & satisfying


    Short-term management focus on this quarter's numbers
    Consulting division is not led well
    Pay is not that great
    Internal processes are over-complex & best ignored
    Half-hearted approach to employee appraisal & development
    Managers at all levels have their little favourites who can do no wrong - very political organisation
    Some customers, and most SIs, hate us but can't escape
    It's really no fun at all if you're locked into a long-term project with a disgruntled customer and a semi-competent manager who's struggling to deliver. But that would be true in most places, I guess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From a product/technology perspective - just keep on doing what you're doing, it works
    From a consulting perspective - just get your head round the idea that you only exist to make the product look good - it's not a real consulting business, so stop pretending
