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

Pros

* Work Life Balance is awesome, except for cases when you are working for a manager who doesn't understand what are the benefits of working for Oracle.
* A beautiful camps that is a landmark of Silicon Valley. It is very well maintained.
* Great Gymnasium.
* An aggressive CEO with a vision, a well defined market strategy, zeal to kill competition, and an innate capability of eeking out profit margins for the share holders.

Cons

* In many divisions of the business, employees are treated as resources, and not human beings.
* No culture to breed innovation from within Oracle. Innovation is happening at Oracle because of acquisition.
* Employees/Engineers have to create their own challenges, unless your division is under the focus of the office of the CEO.
* Teams stay together as a group for many many years. Hence no exposure to other team members with different skills.
* Managers typically lack skills to motivate and excite the teams and people. They work for themselves and promote themselves.

Advice to Management

Not sure what to say... Culture starts from the top. Hopefully you can change it at your level.

    lack of real managers who cannot lead in the mid level management. not a good pay master.

    getting middle heavy lately by promoting folks based on seniority rather than skills. these folks are causing further damage. take care of the people.
