    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work from home is encouraged

    Cons

    Lost vacation days, minimum holidays, 'self-service' is pitiful and gives a user no direction, after acquisition EVERYTHING is turned upside down - new applications, new methodologies, no good processes kept

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to hammer square pegs into a round hole.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Good salary
    - Good benefits
    - Many work from home
    - Outstanding job security
    - Strong executive team, acquisition strategy
    - Wide variety of career paths

    Cons

    - Hierarchy can be rigid
    - Some groups struggle with corporate politics
    - Not the place to climb the corporate ladder really quickly
    - Internal IT support isn't very responsive

    Advice to Management

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