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

    Pros

    Experience and office culture. The overtime that comes 4 months out of the year is also a very nice "pro".

    Cons

    Upward mobility feels limited. My current position has a lack of training in the line of business I'm in due to the Cloud LOB being so new to Oracle.

    Advice to Management

    Provide actual training for the Cloud LOB

    Pros

    Great people, great product, good benefits, flexible vacation. The cream definitely rises to the top. If you're a top performer or a good leader in sales you'll get promoted.

    Cons

    Concerned about growth potential in an organization outside sales. Sales organization gets all the resources, everything else is secondary. Don't expect a big raise if you get a promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Know when a team is too flat. Invest in marketing, brand recognition for the second largest software company is pretty poor.

  8. "In general, Oracle offers a good place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good to excellent benefits and pay. Interesting technologies. Challenging work.

    Cons

    Oracle says it is about developing career employees, but I had a hard time seeing that. Focused on keeping the budget tight. Silo'ing of groups leads to lack of communication and cross-group coordination at times. It can be a complex, corporate structure (of course) to work in at times. My feeling is that if you are not on the 'right' project, your longevity may vary.

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

    Pros

    Oracle is still on the journey from on premise to the cloud. In Healthcare they have been slow to provide HIPAA attestations which is odd as Oracle's biggest competitors are already doing so for cloud deployments

    Cons

    The "Oracle bus" is well known as sales management believes in a somewhat dysfunctional approach by assigning up to 65 sales people to call on the same prospect. That's not only annoying for the client but creates infighting between Oracle pillars (divisions).

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the dysfunction and promote a team approach which provides a far better working environment
