    Pros

    - Great colleagues
    - You could literally do nothing and make $100k or more based on pure luck.
    - Great leave time and vacation time.

    Cons

    - HOLY POLITICS! I've never experienced anything like what it is at Oracle. If you can't handle spending 5-10 hours per week keeping up on all the BS involved, don't come here.
    - You make less money the longer you're there and there's really nothing you can do about it.
    - This is not a career... it's the START of a career. You won't be here in 3 years that's for sure. You'll be managed out and/or just generally unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Where do I start? It's one thing to celebrate a new deal here and there and pat people on the back... but be sure people are appropriately compensated over time. You lose ALL your good people to competitors!
