    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Oracle is a very large company and as such has decent benefits
    - Despite what many report they do pay "well"
    - If you are lazy this is a good place to hide and not have to work terribly hard

    Cons

    - Toxic culture
    - Stiffing for innovators
    - Company is run by bankers, not engineers
    - Company values management over rank and file (e.g. bonus's paid to exec only during hard times)

    Advice to Management

    Break up the super large organization into manageable pieces that can actually develop new software. Buying smaller companies and destroying them is not helping the staff or customers. This practice does help the stockholders (e.g. Larrry E) so I suspect it is not going change. However, other companies have shown that innovation can be profitable (salesforce) and it was only 15 years ago when Oracle could actually innovate.
