    Flexible hours, good salary, good health care insurance.

    Very self service, and a lot of remote workers so in a way you lose human contact.

    Pros

    Flexible work culture. Work for the right team at oracle and you can get the best of both worlds - start up style work culture and work from anywhere atmosphere with the security of large enterprise.

    Cons

    Takes some getting used to the bureaucracy of the system for hr, payroll, expenses, legal, levels of management and delays in promotion decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Leave product strategy and roadmap to the folks close to the product.

    Pros

    Having a big name like this on your resume is great, and if you position yourself correctly you can work on some interesting projects.

    Cons

    Typical big company bureaucracy - it takes forever to get anything done. Getting licenses for development software was and is still a nightmare, and there are so many moving parts to the company as a whole that it's impossible to keep up with everything.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better orientation system. A sense of loss, confusion, and of being overwhelmed is normal at any company, but this feeling should wear off after a few months.

    Pros

    Great place to learn from the very broad enterprise software teams. Employees are well compensated and attract some of the best talent in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Although oracle tires to maintain an entrepreneurial spirit, as is true of all large companies there is a certain level of "big company" dynamics that are different than working for a start up.

    Advice to Management

    Important to focus on continuing to take steps to help maintain an entrepreneurial spirit at the company.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, benefits, people, unlimited sick time, good vacation, gym on site, solid history and they are not going anywhere anytime soon. Has virtually no competition in the database industry.

    Cons

    Salary structure, no bonuses, no raises, lacks vision. Old technology is not very flexible. Lacks training on new product integration. Upper management does not agree on the direction of the company. Stock never moves despite awesome performance and fans in every quarter.
