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.
