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

Pros

If you're a new grad, you'll get a great feel for how software engineering is done at a big organization. If you're working on applications, you'll acquire skills in web technologies and specific application domain knowledge. Great food in the cafes, though they don't rotate them much.

Cons

Communication with teams across the globe is difficult.

Advice to Management

Provide a feedback mechanism from engineers to upper management. It improves morale and allows for organizations to improve

    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.
