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

Pros

Strong, supportive management
Excellent teamwork in our division
Great communications - everyone on the same page in our division
Ability to maintain healthy work-life balance
Able to make a difference and feel appreciated
Personal and professional growth from a learning perspective
Bright, fun, motivated co-workers

Cons

"Greater Oracle" process inflexibility can inhibit productivity and frustrate customers. Rules are there for a reason, but there is a need to improve the balance (rules vs ideas) to allow progress and business process innovation.
Compensation is relatively low.

Advice to Management

For all levels of management, take a look at the groups that are exceeding their goals and also have high employee satisfaction. Understand what they're doing well and adjust your approach accordingly. You have amazing talent in hidden pockets that everyone can learn from.
