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

Pros

Very comfortable environment in world class company, the brand is known by every customer. You can jump from role to role, the only constant it's the change.
There is lot of deeply knowledge that the groups share and when you used to look for it, it's an advantage for you.

Cons

The Salary and compensation is not the best and there is not annual increment in salary.
Because it too large sometimes it is difficult that every line of business work as only one company.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Benefits. Pay is average for the area. Nice campus. Fairly flexible hours. Product line has good potential. If you do not like interacting with people this may be the place for you.

    Cons

    Self service for everything. Matrix management = you are on your own as a wandering drone engineer. No goals, no raises, no feedback except bad, no career advancement opportunities. Cycled in and out of projects which are never fulfilled and criteria changes to make the schedule. Many people WFH to avoid heavy lifting but that is now by approval only. A class system of people and so not well defined roles. Test labs a complete mess, which they are trying to correct but not close to industry standard. Now we are told of capital spending cuts after praise for making the last release so successful and increasing profits. Many people cliques. Tight with your manager then you get perks, manager disinterested in you then you get over assigned and 60 hour weeks while others on your team skate. Too many lost efficiencies as very disgruntled previous Sun employees simply do not care anymore and do not interact outside of cliques. Director micro manages test leads and engineers from 30,000 FT and out of touch with engineering realities. Could be so much more.

    Advice to Management

    Have a vision, share it, implement it and follow up on it. Modernize your test labs to industry and customer standards. The matrix management thing is an excuse for managers to only manage up and not manage people. Recognize individual contributions. Stop telling employees yearly compensation/raises are tied to a missed wall street analyst's expected earning projection do the right thing any profitable company should.
