    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    predictable, hours are flexible, pay is ok, some managers are considerate, good lunch choices (though not free), on-campus gym

    Cons

    It's true that technologies that Oracle buys get no innovation unless it was already bringing in high margins. There are too many incompetent people at Oracle, whether from cousins and friends being hired or just folks know they can get away with things. Pay is not commiserate with experience or value to company, but then this is probably true in many companies, but here, PhD folks get hired who can't speak english, end up working on bugs and even then you wonder if they did things right. Anyhow, if you want to work in a place and feel like you're already retired, this might be for you. If you're looking for energy and innovation.... well, keep looking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your cousins

    Pros

    Plenty of challenges. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Have to learn how to succeed in spite of executive management. Raises are only provided if you're given a competing offer. Innovation in applications is purchased, not homegrown.

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers actually manage vs. holding all control at the very top of the organization on everything. Be mindful of being penny-wise and pound-foolish. Do more to encourage innovation.
