    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.
