    I worked at Oracle as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I was given a good position and good pay (even though it was through a temp agency), and the job title was above what I was expecting.

    Cons

    The people are unfriendly to newcomers, and the working environment is just depressing. People really don't like their jobs and there's a high turnover rate. Even though everyone's hours are supposedly 9-5, people were late all the time and left early. My first day, no one knew that I was starting, and one person thought I was just interviewing. My boss had a family emergency but no one bothered to tell me so I was just sitting around all day.
    The rest of the team was rude and unwelcoming, and they feigned interest only to take advantage of me later. When I shared my ideas with an individual, they took credit for them at the next staff meeting. Overall, it's just an unhappy and toxic place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a thorough sweep of the departments and weed out everybody that causes such a negative atmosphere.
