I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

- Wide variety of career paths

Cons

- Hierarchy can be rigid

Nicer perks would be appreciated. For example, the Employee Stock Purchase Plan is poor compared to similar programs in the industry.

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

    Pros

    Money can be great, caliber of people you work with is great, you have tons of flexibility, and loads of opportunity for folks that are good at working independently.

    Cons

    Very very limited formal training, so without good managers or mentors, this is very tough. So many Oracle groups in large accounts, it is extremely difficult to find symetry and work together. Internal systems are extremely frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Work on better organized training, expansion of KAD program, allignment between tech, HW, apps and Edge on how accounts are assigned. Each manager should have an admin.
