    Pros

    The software engineers here are simply the best in the world. Working among such a talented group of people brings out the best in everybody. Of course, the compensation and work environment are pretty good too.

    Cons

    It is a very technically demanding environment, and you are largely left on your own to sink or swim.

    Advice to Management

    Try to make our internal processes work faster, especially with respect to resources and hiring.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement exist at Skywire Software, especially due to acquisitions that have been made over the last couple of years. Skywire has excellent Executive Leadership, great co-workers, great working environment, fast growing. Recently sold to Oracle, I am now looking forward to growing with a new company.

    Cons

    Long hours and not really enough work and life balance. A lot of travel is required in my position. The travel policy is not that great, but probably compares with other companies of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Executive managment, keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Excellent pay and ability to expand the breadth of your responsibilities. The management was very privy to market conditions and knew exmployees should be well compensated to ensure we keep our core team stable. This may have been pricey but in the long run allowed us to produce a high quality product given our resources. All levels of people in the company always treated each other with a tremendous amount of respect even when the going got rough.

    Cons

    Small company with little resources. There was always too much to do and not enough people to do it. Also we were very customer centric so we changed direction as a company whenever a customer suggested it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on a single goal and path

    Pros

    Great benefits. It pays to work hard. If you work hard enough to be in the top 10-20% of your group or organization it is almost always rewarded with a decent bonus, stock options or merit increase. Oracle rarely has layoffs, unless of course your company was just purchased by them. I have never feared for my job.

    Cons

    Depending on the project, the extra hours can start to add up quickly. Some senior management only manage up and don't pay enough attention underneath them. The company has grown so much it can sometimes be complicated to work with other organizations.

    Advice to Management

    Hold meetings quarterly or bi-yearly with your entire organization. Executive Vice president Juergen Rottler does an excellent job with this, but some of his direct reports either don't do it at all or do it poorly.


  9. "Good place to work if you are a hard worker and don't mind putting in extra time."

    Pros

    I'm doing things that have not been done before. Extra time (utilization) worked is reflected in bonuses for technical consulting staff.

    Cons

    Too many are too focused on work.

    Advice to Management

    Relax.

    Pros

    The best reason to work at oracle are the people. There is a very good work dynamic here and the office politics really are at a minimum.
    The benefits are very comparable to the industry in general.

    Cons

    Very rarely do you hear from the happy customers. That is just the nature of the beast really, but it can drag on you after a time.
    Once you've gotten to the 3 weeks of vacation time per year, that is it forever. This really needs to be changed/updated.

    Advice to Management

    Every year the focal has been getting extended. The Physical year for the company ends May 30th. Why does it now take until DECEMBER to apply and figure out the raise/bonus packages for the employees? 2 years ago it was October. 3 Years ago it was September. Why the delay.
