Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Financially very solid. Have some very clear product strategy. Good compensation and benefit.

Cons

Very fragmented - typical to any firms that have grown mainly through acquisition. Team spirit and member quality vary significantly. One team's dev lead won't survive as a regular engineer in another team. Have to use the worst version control system ever (ade - yuck). CEO is generating some news mostly very saucy and flamboyant. The industry hates us.

Advice to Management

Sigh.

    Pros

    Smart people, flexible hours, interesting technology.

    Cons

    Many arrogant people. Too much process for software development. Minimal salary increases.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what processes help the quality of the product and throw out the others. Trust developers to do the right thing.

    Share the wealth with the people in trenches, instead of over compensating the executives.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to work remotely and consultants up to a certain level are paid based salary, but eligible for OT

    Cons

    After the acquisition, the company atmosphere was no longer the same. Too much politics and the working atmosphere was completely ruined. Advancement opportunities were completely lost.
