    Pros

    reliable
    happy to help
    demonstrates empathy
    happy to pickup new skills
    enthusiast
    positive attitude

    Cons

    Some times I may be a little too perfectionist and so do some extra works. But this is to be sure a solution has been found and can last.

    Advice to Management

    If you are looking for a well experienced storage engineer, I am a good match especially for NAS and SAN architecture (ZFSSA, HDS, Engenio ...)
    I am used to dealing with customer expectations and happy with conf calls.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Some nice colleagues

    Cons

    Too many, non coherent products
    Not caring about customers (main revenues are license maintenance fees and audit results)
    No modern products, obtained through acquisitions
    No support processes, systems, organization
    Focus on cost, so shrinking salaries, firing seniors, launching massive layoff plans every year
    No strategy beyond the quarter
    No value added to the client, nor partnership
    KPIs and target changing during the year

    Stop being a technology laggard
    Be less greedy
    Care about your customers
