    Pros

    Variety of challenges, great management, flexibility as most employees are at-home workers, solid company and solutions

    Cons

    More about the work-at-home than the company, sometimes remote working reduces collaboration which leads to longer solutions at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what will drive the bottom line, not internal reporting and account planning to justify way too many levels of internal management.

    Large company that provides hardware, software and services that supports a large variety of companies.

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

    Pros

    Working with various types of software, working with good people and MOST people are very easy to work with and are happy to help with about anything. There is tons of knowledge at Oracle, both in the brains of the employees and many different resources that is all available to employees. Vacation time is about par with other companies, casual dress pretty much every day, and training available at your desk or in a classroom setting is available. Perks from dress code to cafes and restaurant type dining in the lobby of each building (and each is a different cuisine,) cell phone discounts, as well as other personal purchase discounts. Finally, you are mostly left alone do your work. I have not yet had a micro-manager. and Oracle is the big fish. No one is going to challenge Oracle right now.

    Cons

    A large majority of our co-workers are in India, which makes meeting times either very early US time (late India time) or very late US time (very early India time. Many processes can be and should be automated, and very little top down information (executive management down to us where the rubber hits the road, so to speak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More information on annual benefits earlier (maybe in May we can be told that this and that annual benefits will happen (not for all of course) and this and that will not happen this year. Also, I hope the executive management continues with the method they are using to handle and spend money wisely. Lastly, the market is moving and it's time to award those that you want to stick around.
