    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work from Home, You can go for years without doing anything, Good resume builder. Watching VP's stab each other in the back is a spectator sport.

    Cons

    Constant Re-Orgs, Can go for years without raise or bonus. Way to many layers of management of mostly professional meeting goers. Rampant overlap, constant state of war with managers vying for position and head count. Incompetence is richly rewarded. Horrible Corporate Culture. Can't trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Can't tell these idiots anything.

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

    Pros

    Good Life-work balance. If you can't finish your work by 5PM, there is something wrong. This is the first sales culture where you aren't clocking 50+ or 60+ hours a week. Highly competitive (Driven by the CEO himself), but there is huge upward mobility for those on top of their game.

    Cons

    There is little in-house innovation, it's mostly innovation by acquisition. The creative energy in Oracel's acquired start-ups typically cashes out with their IP, leaves Oracle to start another innovative company. The best advise I was give on dealing with the culture: "Build a rib-cage" around you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to have the sales teams pull together instead of pushing against each other.
