    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Resume Builder... but only if you're a glutton for punishment and stick it out a year.

    Cons

    Disorganization
    Inefficiency
    Zero training
    Poor Management
    Poor thought leadership
    Copy or buy, don't innovate

    Advice to Management

    Oracle is unsalvageable, turning that place around would require an act of God. There are very few talented mangers, the vast majority leave due to internal complications and all the red tape. Go work here if you want to be completely miserable and have no dreams.
