Pros

Oracle is a solid company with very good finances and a strong business in the enterprise software arena. It provides a secure environment to work, without too much turmoil.

Cons

It is a big company and as such you can expect the usual downsides to working on a large company. It is not as agile as a startup and there are many process that have been put in place over the years to make sure bad things do not happen.

Advice to Management

The current strategy has proven successful in the business world so management must be doing something right. If I were to change anything it would be in improving the perception customers have of the support provided by the company.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Big enough company that it will be around for a while.

    Cons

    Oracle is blind to the massive Cloud and SaaS changes going in the market place. They're just too slow to adapt and they can't just buy their way out of this one with acquisitions.
    Company is incapable of innovation for anything other than their DB.
    Bland, boring, culture.
    Creative folks are not part of the Oracle DNA.
