I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Oracle is laser focused on creating shareholder wealth. Oracle always keeps tight control on expenses and never always keeping hte margins under control. End results - even during the worst of downturns, Oracle wasn't affected as much as most other companies. As growth slows down, they quickly reduce expenses to keep the margins/profitability in check.

Cons

Employee satisfaction, career growth etc are the least important thing at Oracle.

Advice to Management

Employees are your most valued assets.

    Pros

    The opportunity or application engineered hardware platforms is compelling. It will ease implementation for customers and improve ROI

    Cons

    Lack of teamwork and collaboration. Every sales reps or solutions group is out for themselves. There appears to be a lack of focus on customer requirements. This hurts customer satisfaction.

    Limited focus on cloud enabled solutions. Oracle's hardware portfolio, ExaData excluded, continues to fall 15-20% quarter over quarter. No career path for hardware-focused employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hardware is about collaboration and engineered systems while software can be sold independently since all packages are mutually exclusive. You hired Mark Hurd from HP but restrict you way he can run the business. The hardware business will continue to lose revenue and marketshare unless that is your strategy.


  2. "Great company if you are self motivated"
