"Ok at my level, better at higher levels"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Oracle full-time

Pros

Based on past performance, its a solid company. Oracle makes money.
Based on other reviews here, life as a developer/high ranking tech staff or US off shore sounds sweet.

Cons

Coming from an acquisition, the product I deal with is now a little bitty part of a giant.
Metric driven environment is subject to number padding and other coerced behaviors driven by management. Lack of US based hiring in particular workgroups.

Advice to Management

Management is not conducive to any of the cons listed here. "That's the way it is going to be and if you don't like it, work somewhere else", is the message we get.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - There is nothing good about the company .Employees are treated as slaves

    Cons

    - Worst team experience
    - No foresight from Managers and Senior managers
    - Team members are extremely disrespectful and judgmental of one another
    - All the expectations normal as one grows in experience were thrown out
    - No explanations given to actions requested as a team
    - Management works with our way or highway thinking and there is no sense of reality what so ever.They behave as though , their reports are useless
    - No hearing of problems , no control over the professionalism expected in a team situation
    - If the managers think that they can do all the work , then they should let the teams go and work themselves

    All in all a filthy / lousy environment as a team . Total stagnation !!!!

    *** HAVING A BRAND NAME DOES NOT ENSURE CONTINUITY AND SUCCESS **
    Very Very bad company to work for - BEWARE

    Advice to Management

    - A review of all the upper management in various departments needs to be carried out
    - Would like to ask why if there was a change expected and spoken to by the member to manager not properly actioned - why was the report not made aware . PEOPLE MAKE A COMPANY AND NOT COMPANY MAKING PEOPLE
    - Please come down from the utopic world and check what is happening . Management is very partial and is holding things against members of the teams that report to them
    - Have a uniform view of policies and wake up to the new generation - not 15th and 16th century thinking
    - One advice - Employees with experience are platinum and no number of new hires at lower salary will be able to compensate for them.
    - Think about salary grades. and would keeping employees for the same level for 6 + years makes sense

    ALL THE ABOVE DO NOT MAKE A GOOD COMPANY !!! . The banners that say we carry everything and care for employees is a hodge wash and total lies
