    Pros

    Coming in the door, you may get an opportunity to make that jump to the next level of responsibility. Getting further advancement beyond that may be less easy.

    Cons

    Management leans on the use of the stick too much, and the company pays less that what you would expect for its size and maturity of operation.

    Advice to Management

    Management through fear creates ongoing loss of top talent who have enough self esteem to expect better treatment

    Pros

    Senior Management doesn't complain if you need to work from home. Besides that, Oracle benefits such as health care and 401k are really good.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive if compared to the market and bonuses are really bad, sometimes nonexistent. The fact that Oracle has acquired many companies has changed the company soul. Now it looks like one place with many different companies inside.

    Advice to Management

    Oracle needs a more clear direction besides more methodology for developing products.
