    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Great & smart people (if you're on the right team)
    Interesting, and surprisingly cutting-edge products (again, if you're on the right team)
    Solid base pay
    Good benefits
    Telecommuting options / good work/life balance
    Renovated offices (again, if you're on the right team)

    Cons

    Sometimes behaves like the "Federal Gov't" of the Tech industry... way too much bureaucracy and red tape / Politics of a large company
    Run by lawyers (sometimes)
    Fewer perks than most Tech companies (but more than most "regular" companies)
    Some offices not renovated
    Somewhat old-fashioned and lumbering sales teams (but they are slowly working to address that)
    Older, more complacent culture (depending on the team)
    No "guaranteed" bonus if you are outside of Sales
    Not "data-driven" (depending on the team)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to restructure Sales to make it more nimble so that it can compete in the Digital Age, and so that it communicate better with Product/Engineering & Marketing. Use data to analyze success and failures of products and campaigns. Also, try to compete better with other Tech companies by offering more perks to employees.
