    Pros

    Access to all of the Oracle tools and hardware. Decent healthcare and dental.

    Cons

    Too big. To get anything done takes forever. Half the people on the organization are from India and are hard to understand. Anyone leaving in the US is replaced by two in India

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all the stupid titles and settle on some sort of decent levels for software engineers and make it clear how one can get promoted

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule; professional environment; high energy;

    Cons

    Difficult to consistently meet extraordinarily high expectations/goals; never any "down time"; if you work hard to get ahead, you will be rewarded with more work, not more pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more time for employee training during working hours

    Pros

    Strong roadmap for kicking butt and taking names. Restoring SPARC architecture in the marketplace as a provider of performance leading systems optimized across the whole HW/SW stack for best customer experience and performance. Great team of dedicated co workers

    Cons

    Run as a business with focus on the bottom line. This actually minimizes your risk for any negative surprises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize hardware engineering is different from software engineering

    I have been working at Oracle Engineering Group

    Pros

    This is specific to my group:
    - Very little micro managing and freedom to make decisions
    - Interesting challenges and high tech work

    Cons

    - HR rules with iron fist on all things related to promotions, salaries, raises etc.
    - Growth within company is very old fashioned, more by years rather than potential or capability
    - The company as a whole does not innovate much, just buys companies that make good products and squeezes out the moneys worth

    I have been working at Oracle Engineering Group

    Pros

    There is a lot of talent with diverse skill sets in the engineering disciplines.

    Cons

    This is a very difficult place to work. It reminds me of the great industrial age where to executives get too many bonuses and high salaries and the REAL contributors get minimal compensation.

    Pros

    Job stability, health benefits, amenities like access to gym, 401k, ESPP

    Cons

    Not many other perks other than the standard. Your salary is what you get. No bonus or not much. Only 5% get the bonus.
    At individual contributor level, not much chance for innovation
    Not employee friendly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is making money. Mgmt is doing a good job on that front.
