I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Well managed company with a huge reach in its customer's IT organziations that offers a wide range of products and roles. Offers its senior managers competitive comp and freedom and good work / life balance for many mid and junior level roles

Cons

Don't come to Oracle expecting to drive innovation or rapid advancement. For mid level and senior managers it's a highly political, surivial-of-the-fittest environment. For individual contributors you need to rely on a good manager to look after you. Raises and bonuses outisde of sales and engineering are rare so make sure you will be happy with your base salary .

Advice to Management

Larry and his execs are not looking for any advice but just in case - there is a lot of untapped creativity in the company. A conscious effort to reward initiative and fresh ideas would pay off.

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

    Pros

    Pay's well, lots of potential opportunities

    Cons

    As a sales rep, over 50% of my time was spent internally fighting for a place in deals, fighting to make sure I got paid ..etc.

    Pros

    Great people. Rewarding career path with best compensation plan in the industry. Although a lot of long hours, the work life balance is there and management encourages you to take time for yourself and family.

    Cons

    No cons that make it worth writing about. Any place you are is tough at any given day. Oracle is a great company - couldn't be happier.

    Advice to Management

    It's all good!
