No opinion of CEO

I worked at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Benefits are hands down one of if not the best in the industry.
They pay for your smart phone service plan.
On site Gym, free soda, juice & water, fuse ball, ping pong table and pool table

Cons

Red tape and lots of it. Overloaded with so much information (emails, word & excel docs, shortcuts, links & accounts) on hire you don't know where to start. New hire training material is non existent. It is a sink or swim environment. Do not expect to join and bring change or even improvements. Status quo is the name of the game. It is all about tickets!!!

Advice to Management

Some managers have no business being a manager. Just because they have been there so long doesn't mean they have the skills to be a manager.
