Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- Great learning opportunities.
- Full range of Oracle technology (Applications to Disk) to get your teeth stuck into
- Good work/life balance.
- A wealth of internal resources with a heavy emphasis on knowledge sharing and networking
- Great Flexible Benefits systems for all employees
- Office location all over the UK, but in reality it Reading and the City office (Moorgate) that you need to be at.

Cons

- Promotions and salary increments are a very slow in coming. (its been 7 years and I not had a single increase in wages).
- Oracle Struggles when its comes to career progression. You got to make it happen yourself, don't expect Oracle to guide you.
- To many account manager trying to sell a solution to a single customer (Oracle Bus syndrome)
- Typical Sales organisation so some people are only out to help themselves.

Advice to Management

Time to start paying people the going rate and lowering the obstacles to promotion
