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

Pros

Great co-workers, friendly, cooperative, mostly non-competitive (I work in Systems, former Sun Microsystems), great campus, private offices, interesting work, fast-moving but not too fast, good work-life balance, nice amenities like cafeteria, free exercise classes, gym, health benefits.

Cons

Not as innovative as other companies, some competitive feeling at other business units, more top-down than bottom up

Advice to Management

Encourage greater innovation and more bottoms-up decision making

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in time. Work from home option few days a week. Good sick leave policy.

    Cons

    More work but less head count. All acquired companies are not totally transitioned to working style of original Oracle. It is like 2 different companies.

    Advice to Management

    Make the acquisition process more efficient, it would be really good say at end of 2 years after acquisition , those groups work the exact same way as original Oracle.
