I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good Salary and Benefits. Ability to work from home on a flexible schedule as long as my work is high quality and timely. Many smart, dedicated employees that really care about the customers and products. I

Cons

Can be difficult to get promoted within existing team - often requires a change in business unit/location. Marketing support is limited for some of the smaller business units and thus non- marketing roles are required to carry the marketing responsibilities in addition to other primary job responsibilities.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Huge company, several problems to solve. Never worry about the next pay check. Everyone knows Oracle.

    Cons

    Inept management, zero support for lower level people. Everything is a power grab. No one in charge understands what's going on down the line.

    Advice to Management

    Oracle has a huge Windows server environment. Please start running that environment like a Windows server environment. STOP trying to use useless Linux tools to provision and manage the Windows environment.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very profitable, decent salaries and benefits, generally well-managed. Work/life balance can be OK, working from home is generally accepted, internal processes and procedures are fairly well-honed.

    Cons

    Very hierarchical, so large it's hard to feel like you're making a difference. Very cumbersome hiring process, all offers have to be approved very high in the organization, by the time this happens many strong candidates have taken other opportunities.
