    Pros

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

    Oracle is less people friendly and more bottom line than other software companies. On the other hand, it is successful and profit making.

    Powerful brand, cutting edge technology, ample opportunities, provides good work-life balance.

    stagnated growth, no transparency of the business strategy at the mid senior management, high handedness of resources, strategies keeps evolving and changing, not allowing to settle with something that works

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please "listen to the voice of the employees", they too can come up with brilliant ideas which can turn around the performance of Cloud Services, a.k.a. On Demand

    Current Employee - Sales Consultant in New York, NY

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Oracle has grown a diverse line of products, all striving to be best in class. Unlike other companies that grow through acquisition, Oracle fully assimilates these products, over time, into end-to-end solutions. I used that think that was just Marketing, but I've found it to be true.

    Cons

    Easy to feel isolated, accessing self-service applications, working remotely on virtual teams, without contact to coworkers, and not always having contact with customers.
