    Pros

    Work Life Balance is fantastic. If you understand this you'll be ok. If you don't you'll be unhappy. Personally, I love Oracle for this reason. I have time to do my job and time to do what I love as well.

    Cons

    Very political. Difficult to move up in the organization or get pay increases. Join the company as high as you can.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage real innovation, not competition. The culture is too competitive and political. We need to listen to our people and let them explore new ideas safely. These new ideas need to be moved into product at some point.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    A large, stable, successful company where you can move around and grow. There are 1000s of smart, capable people. The company has good benefits and salary. Its a good place to work when raising a family. Sales, engineering teams are great.

    Cons

    Some executives are highly political creatures with strong anti-innovation mindset. Try to work for newly acquired executives (or startups Oracle has bought), if you want to learn and grow. Working with Oracle long-timers is usually a bad idea unless there is a specific smart person.

    Advice to Management

    Identify young leaders and groom them. Invest in people or you will be a dead company in 10 years. So many smart people, so little innovation.
