    Pros

    You would be hard pressed to find a technology company with more to offer, more to learn from.

    Cons

    Promotions do not come easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to embrace the cloud and accelerate that growth. Remove pillars and build cohesion across products and technologies.

    Pros

    Amazing range of products, access to technology, training and people. Easy to ramp up personal technical skills. Great people.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic like any other large organization. Every quarter is a new quarter. Past performance does not count only the current quarter

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce performance reviews and pay raises to performance. Not subject to manager's fancies

    Great learning experience

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If you are the type of person who likes to take the initiative to learn different technologies, Oracle would be great for you. You have loads of training at your finger tips. Much of the training can be done on company time, however, you can do self-studies to learn additional things. Since Oracle has bought up many companies, there is an abundance of technology that can be learned.

    Cons

    Negotiate hard coming in. Since Oracle provides a lucrative bonus structure, they do not give significant raises to your base pay.
