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

Pros

Smart, hard working colleagues that like to work hard and play hard. I knew people that had million dollar years...

Cons

But they were the exception and not the rule. You can make a good living at Oracle but you will work much harder and deal with way more internal politics than any other tech/SW company. The good old boys take care fo the good old boys...

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Oracle brand opens all doors

    Cons

    The Oracle brand also upsets a lot of customers. Management increasingly resorting to micro-managing, metrics, and scapegoat tactics

    Advice to Management

    Fire the micro-managers, and hire leaders. People want to be inspired, not ground into cookie-cutter metrics

    I worked at Oracle as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of people to learn from during my internship. Good culture within my group.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape and hoops to jump through for even the smallest thing. The mobile research team couldn't even get a new iPhone without a 5 month wait for 8 different approvals and signatures. This company seems too big for the good of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down on the red tape so employees can be efficient and effective in their jobs.
