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.

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

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Fast paced environment. Talented people. Very successful company. Well position for continued success.

    Cons

    Work-life balance should be more of a priority for the company. Compensation on the low side. Management seems to defer to will of sales teams and allow them to control non-sales agenda. More effort should be made to bring remote teams together at least once a year. Benefits were merely satisfactory.
