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

    Pros

    Plenty of employee parking. I never had to search for a space. Covered parking was also available, which was nice in the summer.

    Cons

    Too much in-fighting between groups. Extremely "political" (many decisions based on who-you-know instead of what-you-know.)

    Every group I worked with at Oracle deeply felt that their group was considered "the bottom of the barrel." Every group believed that they were the less-favored group (engineering, marketing, legal, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Re-adjust your core values to take better care of your employees, then live by those values.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sales support is not about face time in the office, but rather how well you're able to support your reps. Flexibility as long as you get the job done.

    Cons

    Fairly political, lots of inane administrivia that highly qualified managers and even directors seem to over-focus on, absolutely no ability to get a base pay raise in sales, easy to stagnate.
