    Pros

    Oracle provides competitive pay and benefits. Depending on the organization you are in, there may be opportunities for growth and promotion into management.

    Cons

    Support for engineers to do their jobs well is minimal. Senior management generally cares more about costs rather than providing adequate tools to their developers. Also, Oracle requires that their developers use a proprietary source control system, which lacks many features that would be standard in open source options.


  2. "Product Management"

    Pros

    Can learn anything and go anywhere

    Cons

    Could always do better on compensation

    Advice to Management

    Develop your middle-level management to run P/L. Too many decisions have to go up to the top when they could be owned/managed by department/group leaders.
