Pros

Great place to work. Broad technology stack available. Management is great they aloow freedom of ideas. Now with Sun acquisition we will own Java. This is great for both oracle and java. This stock will do great.

Cons

Too much fire fighting. Need more project planning. need to give engineers more time for innovation. Benefits are ok. ESPP is not great.

Advice to Management

Oracle is a great place. But we need to slow down a bit. Employees could use bit more incentives. ESPP could be lot better.

Other Employee Reviews for Oracle

    Pros

    1) There are some very smart people working at Oracle.They have been there for a very ling time. During a project, you can learn a lot just by talking to the senior people who help you with your project.

    2) Oracled database is a challenging product to work on. Kernel code has been there since 80s and one of Oracle's best success has been to keep this code pretty stable. Just browsing thorugh the code helps one build on his intellectual capital. Getting involved in some projects for Oracle's database related products is a great plus.

    3) Oracle management is pretty OK with working from home. You can have a flexible schedule as long as you get the work done.

    4) benefits at Oracle are OK.

    Cons

    1)In some groups, work is not allocated fairly. I know some people who have been at Oracle for a while but who have not done any major work.

    2) Some people at management can be rude at times.

    3) If you recently entered Oracle, then there is not much chance of a career growth simply because there are too many people ahead of you.

    Advice to Management

    Plese try to allocate work more evenly. Employees should have the feeling that what they are doing matters for the company.


  2. "Information rich environment"

    Cons

    Value/identity of the individual, in what is now a massive company, is hard to discern.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out ways to hold on to people who are good at what they do.
