    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with some bright people and you get plenty of knowledge about product internals, databases in my specific case.

    Cons

    Oracle Support - where I worked is terribly out dated with respect to silicon valley compensation trends. It therefore does not attract the brightest and best talent around. The appraisal system is also more egalitarian in design so those who do not pull their weight have little to be concerned about while the top performers have little to look forward to.

    Advice to Management

    Product Support can be a HUGE differentiator. Stop thinking of Support and Support employees as second class corporate citizens and truly invest in rebuilding the organization with fresh management first.


  2. "a company with potential for greatness often squandered"

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

    Pros

    it is possible to do "big things" at Oracle, there are small islands of goodness within the huge ocean of lame

    Cons

    extremely political, Sexy tends to take precendence over Good, non-competitive salary and compensation, poor management mentoring means senior managers actually do not have the skills to run a business unit, fear drives too many decisions (and non-decisions)

    Advice to Management

    stop listening to TK - he's misinformed. make products that your customers need and they will pay handsomely. continue to make sexy, crappy products and they will flee after the first version.
