Pros

Competitive in a good way, Pay is fair for work done, Career development encouraged but a lot of stiff competition for open positions.

Cons

Internal processes can be cumbersome, Very large organization riddled with robotic policies regarding people decisions, tons of meetings that don't necessarily apply to all when required to attend.

Advice to Management

Stop hiring salespeople without business acumen and strong business ethics. Too many "gunslingers" allowed to sell on behalf of Oracle under shady pretenses and then leave before the customer fallout. But, keep buying the best, making it your own and bullying everyone else in the industry, It keeps our competitors tap-dancing and our customers with the best.

    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.


  2. "Interesting Dynamics"
