No opinion of CEO

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
