Pros

The training and skills you obtain during your time at Oracle are top notch. You get the chance to do the most technically advanced implementations of the particular Oracle product line you were hired for. Within Oracle consulting, you're also able to move around in your product family vertical (BI), and work on various systems (OBIEE, ODI, Hyperion).

Cons

The constant re-orgs make it tough to have a relationship with your manager. Also, many projects within consulting don't have the same collaborative feel as our partner consulting firms (Accenture, Deloitte, IBM).

Advice to Management

Senior Management should create more detailed metrics for Oracle Consulting to enable the staff to have clear goals to reach, and exceed for promotion. Also, the sales team should work more closely with consulting, to enable Oracle consulting to be the preferred implementer of our own products. Each region of the US differs in relation to the amount of work Oracle consulting has.

    Pros

    Oracle is a large corporation with a good reputation in its field. Experience with Oracle and its wide range of products is valued by many other companies making you a more valuable worker. Unlike working with smaller companies, you will have the opportunity to interact with people from around the globe. You will also have the opportunity to learn and create the software products that drive many of the world's largest companies.

    Cons

    It can be daunting working for a large, impersonal corporation. Your direct management, human resources representative and other coworkers may not even be co-located with you. You need to have initiative and not be afraid to seek out other people in your job.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate freely with your employees. They are your greatest resource. The domain knowledge that they bring is not a commodity.

    Pros

    it has good cafes and the work is relatively challenging. the groups are somewhat self-autonomous so you can do a bunch of things as long as you have the resources to go after there. but nothing can be that big or else it will hit the purview of senior management and then the whole process will slow down or come to a complete standstill.

    Cons

    it is a very slow company to react and thus the projects are few and far between. don't expect any performance reviews that are worthwhile either. they started to do them towards the end of my time there, but they weren't taken seriously

    Advice to Management

    none
