    Pros

    Generous salaries, bonuses and fringe benefits. Talented, educated technical professionals all around you. Company commitment to working from home and global teams. Cool products.

    Cons

    Weak leadership at the top set the tone for management downstream. No clue how to market their great products profitably. Questionable business model for selling IP.

    Advice to Management

    It's Oracle now, and I've heard management is more disciplined. Performance reviews have apparently become more just and supported by evidence versus political alliances.
