I have been working at GCE full-time

Pros

1) GCE offers numerous oppotunites for learning and advancement. You will have the chance to learn from very smart and senior people as well as very smart junior people. You may need to chase them down at times but it ends up being well worth the effort.
2) GCE is a fast paced environment, you will never be bored.
3) The GCE workforce is growing together, there are great bonds being formed within the teams as well as across areas. We are all striving for success together and willing to help out for a great end result.
4) It is a very diverse place to work , great ideas can be achieved with the different minds and backgrounds at GCE.

Cons

1) There has been a tendency at GCE for management to speak to people in an aggressive manner. This has improved; however, there is room for more improvement.
2) Other reviews mention work overload and endless hours, this has also improved at GCE. There are times when extra work is required and planning could be improved.

Advice to Management

Put more trust in the people that work for you, they were hired for a reason. The majority of people at GCE are trying for the same victory as you: for GCE to be successful. If you don't let people show you how awesome they are, you will never know the talent you have at your fingertips.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at GCE full-time

    Pros

    Open source material. You pretty much can get access to any technical material. Focus on technical skills is a plus. Very friendly environment, a lot of extracurricular activities with people within the organization.

    Cons

    Lack of overall organization of key business processes. Asymmetric information sharing leads to a select few knowing 80 percent of system architecture and its capabilities. Other employees know little comparatively and are required to be personal advocates to ensure their success. A great company should at least match 50 percent on training and development and the employee should have the personal drive to learn independently.

    Advice to Management

    Really should have rotational assignments for new hires. Each employee should be required to obtain professional technical certifications recognized by agencies- not in house, otherwise, they cannot advance at the firm. Upper management can at times seem a little jaded and unsure, at times is too over-reliant on the opinion of one or two analysts. Too many hires, stop hiring young people, have the experienced people train the junior analysts. Ad hoc development practices, too much do or die scenarios for certain junior developers who have no direction and are overwhelmed. Talent is not easily identified and shifted to the right areas. Should send junior talent to Oracle training.
