    Current Employee - Consultant in Paris (France)

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

    (Translated from English)

    Pros

    Le seul point positif pour moi est que j'apprécie le logiciel avec lequel je travail ainsi que les clients (en général) étant donné que je peux généralement travailler depuis les locaux des clients et sortir des bureaux d'Oracle.

    The only pro for me is that I like the software I am working with and the clients (in general) - since I can work mostly at client sites and get out of the Oracle office.

    Cons

    Pas d'augmentation de salaire pendant plusieurs années.

    Menace constante de réduction des effectifs.

    Systèmes administratifs très rigides qui, souvent, ne marchent pas très bien.

    La plupart des personnes influentes de cette entreprise semble être des travailleurs administratifs, et certains prennent pour cible des individus pour les brimer.

    Absolument aucune prise en compte de l'équilibre entre travail et la vie privée. Par exemple, faire que les employés manquent de temps de travail, si bien que les week-ends se réduisent à quelques heures.

    Ils ne considèrent même pas les consultants comme des être humains ...

    No payrises for several years.
    Constant threat of being retrenched.
    Very rigid admin systems that don't often work very well.
    Most powerful powerful people in the company seem to be admin people, and some of them target individuals for bad treatment.
    No consideration at all of work/life balance - for example, making people fly out of work time so that there are only a few hours in a weekend.
    They do not even consider the consultants to be human beings....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Développer un peu de compassion.

    Develop some humanity.
