Positive Outlook

I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good telecommuting chances. Great database technology.

Cons

No raises in Support. Watch out if you have a lousy boss, and there are quite a few out there. You will be competing with folks who sacrifice their family and life for the company. Some groups give very little training for the technology the employees have to keep up with.

Poor Work Life Balance in Support including Cloud Services.
Extremely fast paced company.

Advice to Management

Have a code of conduct for managers also. Stop bullying employees. Internal Job Search Site is very unfriendly for employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Brand recognition, prestige, excellent health benefits

    Cons

    There is more competition internally for deals than externally from competitors. This culture is widespread and encouraged by upper management. As a result, what should be a competitive advantage (breadth of portfolio of the Oracle "stack") creates a culture of predatory sales poaching by internal teams.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the sales culture. Your vision is excellent, but the sales culture is killing your execution.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can work remotely and the work provides challenges which keep it from getting stale. The health benefits are good and they provide the typical 401k and other comp benefits. Formerly had lots of budget for training.

    Cons

    Low reward for hard work so don't expect competitive raises. They offshore too many colleagues which places a large burden on local staff to rework or take problems that need to be solved in a timely manner. The culture is too self help about HR, IT, professional development, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Management places too much value on low cost offshore labor. They should recognize the return on investment of off shoring versus a dedicated local employee that is more vested in seeing work through. Proved better compensation for employees to stay.
