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

Pros

Huge presence in the market, recognizable brand, established relationships with most CIOs. Very strong commitment to R&D.

Cons

Sales is viewed as a necessary evil. There is tremendous channel conflict due to 10+ prime salespeople all competing for time and attention with the same CIO. If you are in sales, don't expect to be paid on time. The compensation issues at Oracle in terms of accuracy and timeliness are the worst that I have seen in my very long tenure within this industry.

Advice to Management

Fix the root cause(s) of the turnover problem.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    flexible work hours. HQ location.

    Cons

    working at crazy hours, sometimes meetings at 7.00 am or 11 pm, does not matter your schedule, you have to meet.
    No real job recognition , the performance appraislsals are just for burocracy you have to bargain for a raise or have a good relation with your manager.
    Get some job experience and leave, otherwise you will get obsolete with technology as its verty restrictive what you can do.
    Movements on positions, salaries, bonus are "discrete" , apparently is a way to hide out information on the groups, you never have information about it, if you get some , you are lucky, I really don't like the politics.
