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.

    Cons

    - Hierarchy can be rigid

    - 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.

    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.
