Approves of CEO

I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Iracke (especially product development) is full of driven, results-oriented, type A people. If you're looking to grow your career and work hard, Oracle is the place for you.

Cons

If you're timid, easily offended, or not smart, Oracle is not the place for you!

Advice to Management

Improve the internal applications. They make doing routine administrative tasks (e.g. performance appraisals, virtual training, approving new hires, etc) really annoying.

    Pros

    - stable company with an impressive product portfolio
    - employees known for being top notch
    - opportunity to work on important projects that shape the industry

    - little opportunity for promotion or advancement
    - doesn't matter what your bonus % is -- you won't get it. they haven't paid bonuses in years, despite stellar financial performance

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

    Pros

    World recognized technology software company

    Cons

    Various business units and divisions work in silos and not together
    Very few opportunities for individual contributors to move into management
    Promotions (very few) are very political. It depends on who the boss likes the most
    Short term career planning is weak and just a check list once a year. Long-term (1+) career planning and mentoring does not exist.
    Sales / Sales Consulting is always restructuring and reorganizing. Intentionally done to clean house
