I have been working at Oracle full-time

Pros

The managers here are very direct, and senior management has a vision for where the company should go. They are smart, driven people. If you like a demanding place to work this is the place.

Cons

You have to take your career in your hands. Find a mentor. The company re-orgs every six months it seems, so who is in control in middle management is hard to figure out.

Advice to Management

Communicate more.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Documentation department is very stable and most writers have been around for over ten years. The company has good benefits and is very professional in how it treats employees.

    Cons

    Some organizations (like Consulting, and sometimes Sales) have high turnover. The company is a huge bureaucracy with tools and systems for every conceivable purpose, some of which are poorly designed and inefficient. Most middle managers are mediocre communicators who inherited their positions long ago when there were still opportunities to move up. Now things are static - only when companies are bought are new executives added. Some products barely work and are managed with amazing incompetence, yet no one seems to notice because the company is so big.

    Advice to Management

    Look closer at lower level managers and raise the bar on their behavior. As leaders they should be better than their subordinates. Some of them need their responsibilities restructured, which will give others a chance to lead. Promote more from within.
