    Principal Member of Technical Staff

    Senior Member Technical Staff (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsWork in general is good developmental work. If you show you are capable of doing good work, you will keep getting good work.

    ConsIn order to use technologies/tools developed outside of Oracle, you have to justify why you cannot use any Oracle tool.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust engineers. Most of them give very very aggressive schedules. They are not slackers. If they think, they need more time for dev, they do work on weekends. You don't unnecessarily put pressure on them on top of it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Lot's of technology and strong business acumen

    Manager Engineering (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSolid company that has been able to show consistently the ability to obtain quarterly earnings and return value to its shareholders.

    ConsNot for everyone. A very large collection of products through acquisitions that over time has created a portfolio that can be overwhelming for customers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on unstructured data and the cloud. There are emerging alternatives to database technology and the amount of new data being created today is predominately unstructured.
