    Oracle is an old company that is beginning to find its stride again!

    I have been working at Oracle as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company, good benefits and pay, relaxed working environment, flexible, a huge base of application SW and customer base

    Cons

    High turnover rate, one manager told me that there is basically around 75 hires and fires every day. The company is very large to manage and they have been acquiring a large number of small business and startup to finally shut them down and let go of every one. PeopleSoft and JDE are some examples.

    Advice to Management

    Acquiring business just to shut the company and its competition is not ethical, but I guess that is how business is?

    Good compensation and benefits , good work life balance, strong leaders to move the company in the right direction.

    Cons

    Like big companies stagnation happens after reaching a level.

    Advice to Management

    Still lots of room to consolidate the engineering work force and concentrate on unified product development and avoid duplicates. Don't be late to recognize and adopt trends in the industry.
