I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Virtual work is a valuable commodity. Support from other colleagues (in my group and extended teams) is very good. Encyclopedia of information available online. Course work available. Oracle embraces good core values.

Cons

No raises... and attrition on the rise, you are losing top talent. Appreciate and reward your employees. Even more important, listen to what the employees say they need in order to be more productive, especially since there are fewer personnel doing far more work. Cumbersome, complicated, and confusing websites for employees does not help them get the resources/information they need in a timely manner.

Advice to Management

If the CEO gave himself a raise, then the hard working employees deserve some recognition as well. There were 'silent' raises given out to a chosen few (as employees do talk to each other), but management denies this. Step out of the box and try products that you did 'not' acquire through Mergers and Acquisitions. You have to keep up with the (internet) times, and it's difficult to 'dig a ditch with a cocktail spoon.' Invest in tools to assist employees and not slow them down. With the lean support staff (and getting leaner), we need state-of-the-art, efficiency and agility from upper management to keep up with the times.

    Pros

    The pay is good and the job is beyond easy.

    Cons

    Extremely political and corporate. No autonomy. Feels like there is no room for growth. Treated like a number. Everyone, especially the managers and higher-ups are obsessed with money. If the idea of buying a Ferrari makes you salivate, this is the place for you! You'll definitely get paid enough, and you'll fit in with all the other saps who hate their lives and try and compensate with material objects.

    The culture is quite dull and not very fun. Most people are on the same page that this is a place that you just want to stamp on your resume and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to, and care about your employees. Set goals with them and show them paths to advancement. Try and make the culture fun and not all about money.

    I have been working at Oracle as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, friendly coworkers, work remotely

    Cons

    Very "self-service" type of atmosphere, which is good in many ways, but hard for a new hire.
