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

    Pros

    Having Oracle on your resume is great. Co-workers are relaxed and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Some of the directors and senior managers are startlingly unmotivated. Not much opportunity for growth in WWOPs -- especially in Hillsboro. Compensation is low and bonuses do not exist. You will get locked into a cycle of 5% raises every two years. They do offer stock, but the price hasn't moved in two years. Overall, there's nothing special about this place. Get in, do your work, and move on after a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Culture is stale and lifeless. Company is an old-guard tech giant whose best years are in the rearview.

    Pros

    Great group of folks to work with

    Cons

    Crap management that cares very little for their human capital. you are just a number to them.

    Advice to Management

    If we know that business is not going well, can you at least tell us the truth so we can find a new job to feed our families? Oracle is just another example of American companies only care the few execs and the stock value. What happened to America? Why is there so little regard for good hard working employees?

    Pros

    Nice people

    Still some interesting technical challenges if you're working on the right products

    Cons

    Most of Operations management are not competent. They try to hide it by micro-management and intimidation. There are WAY too many Directors and VPs in the organization.

    Little to no pay raises for the worker bees, no real appreciation or recognition either.

    Opportunities for advancement are hard to come by.

    Extremely bureaucratic, lots of internal inertia

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't do any good - I tried!

    You are truly just a number

    Advice to Management

    I know I am only a number, but it should not be as transparent.
