    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a big company, they can afford good benefits and small perks. Some of what we are doing is pretty cool - not directly because it's O, but just the nature of my position (distributed systems development)

    Cons

    Compensation (salary and bonus') are low-ish.

    Lots of bureaucracy that comes with a big company. So many levels of middle management that provide no value.

    Many of the "policies" only add overhead and paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    People are individuals and therefore different. And so are separate divisions. Stop trying to make everyone and everything the same and fit into your little mold.

    Trust the people you've hired. Give them what they need and let them do their jobs.

    Pay people market wages.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are working with great people
    Upper management listens to your concerns and does the best they can to resolve them (which is usually impossible in a company this large)
    Office and equipment is nice and new
    The job is stable and there isn’t a fear of losing your job

    Cons

    LOW base salary
    Low Bonuses / Commission
    Very confusing compensation plan that really makes no sense and nobody really gets the “special” algorithm.
    Too much red tape
    High turnover - People leave every other day
    Technology is old and outdated

    ****Internal systems are absolute garbage! The CRM and system we log interactions in are horrible, slow, over complicated, and every employee hates it! Stop building 10 different web pages for one KPI. Keep it simple!! Buy a phone system that logs and records phone calls and have a small box pop up in the CRM where reps can add a note and click save! Make it easy so people actually want to do it.

    Advice to Management

    Fight harder for your managers and reps in regards to salary increases and better bonus pay. Make career pathing clear, rather than just promoting people on a whim with no actual time table.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Great work life balance, generally relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Many teammates are remote and much older. Didn't learn a whole lot. Not much passion or dev expertise.

    Move everyone into one office, invest in technical structure.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good (medical, vacation)
    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    Low pay
    Raises are far and few between, and when you do get one, it's a small raise.
    Slow or non-existent advancement
    Promotions are very difficult, despite doing good work
    Poor and/or little training
    Too many processes that don't make sense or aren't useful (seems just like busy work).
    Under staffed
    Lots of layoffs - at least 5 in my time here. Even lay offs on teams that are understaffed to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    recognize good work, pay better for it.
    offer more career/learning opportunities
    reduce useless/pointless processes

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Great brand recognition, stable company.

    Cons

    Too many lines of business and over satuerated account teams. Oracle has 10+ Sales people and product lines in any given accpount and all are competing for the same dollar - leads to a very canabalistic sales culture and is not healthy for the sales team or the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Focus and keep the sales teams in their lanes
