    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Oracle is evolving into a modern, innovative company. It has always been a large powerhouse in the enterprise software and technology space, and is now cutting edge with more opportunities than ever to stretch yourself in new areas and roles. A healthy work-life balance is fostered by management. Culture is always friendly and supportive.

    Cons

    As is often the case, pros can simultaneously be cons. Oracle is evolving rapidly - so much so that in a few orgs it is like a start-up. However, it is still an extremely large company, so it is not nimble like a start-up and there are often political/bureaucratic challenges.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recalibrating the salaries of management positions in the pre-sales orgs with the comp plans of the sales consultants they manage would be wise. Sales consultants are paid on an hourly basis and often earn far more than their salaried managers - who work equally as much/as hard.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, stress-free environment, strong infrastructure and well-defined processes, flexible work schedule and location, good benefits.

    Cons

    Compensation was low relative to industry, multiple years with low or no salary increases, processes and policies sometimes too rigid and lengthy, benefits were good but not outstanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review compensation to be more in line with industry.
