    I have been working at Oracle Engineering Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work in general is good developmental work. If you show you are capable of doing good work, you will keep getting good work.

    Cons

    In order to use technologies/tools developed outside of Oracle, you have to justify why you cannot use any Oracle tool.

    Advice to Management

    Trust engineers. Most of them give very very aggressive schedules. They are not slackers. If they think, they need more time for dev, they do work on weekends. You don't unnecessarily put pressure on them on top of it.

    I worked at Oracle Engineering Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid company that has been able to show consistently the ability to obtain quarterly earnings and return value to its shareholders.

    Cons

    Not for everyone. A very large collection of products through acquisitions that over time has created a portfolio that can be overwhelming for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on unstructured data and the cloud. There are emerging alternatives to database technology and the amount of new data being created today is predominately unstructured.
