    Pros

    Nice people

    Still some interesting technical challenges if you're working on the right products

    Cons

    Most of Operations management are not competent. They try to hide it by micro-management and intimidation. There are WAY too many Directors and VPs in the organization.

    Little to no pay raises for the worker bees, no real appreciation or recognition either.

    Opportunities for advancement are hard to come by.

    Extremely bureaucratic, lots of internal inertia

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't do any good - I tried!

    Money was good
    Able to work remotely

    Cons

    You are truly just a number

    Advice to Management

    I know I am only a number, but it should not be as transparent.

    Pros

    Much more cost controlled and metrics driven. Decisions are not made based on emotion or gut feeling. Oracle believes in testing the latest, greatest software internally and that makes a big difference when working on production control systems.

    Cons

    Oracle believes in controlling decisions at a very detailed level. All financial decisions above $25k required executive management approval which can slow approvals. Integration into their IT systems is extremely slow and painful with little to no support. If you are illiterate in technology in any way, you won't survive.

    Advice to Management

    Create new avenues of communication between upper and lower levels. The hierarchy is so strictly enforced that ideas rarely make it to the executive levels.
