    Pros

    Great company with innovation, technology and recognition.
    Most employees are 10+ years there, that tells how this company treats its employees.
    Hopefully fusion applications takes leadership in the market..

    Product names are changed constantly.. so its very hard to keep track of the products
    Company is expanding globallay more than the US expansion

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with same good work on acquisitions.. and bring all the market leaders into oracle family.
    Concentrate on cloud computing..

    Pros

    Oracle is a solid company with very good finances and a strong business in the enterprise software arena. It provides a secure environment to work, without too much turmoil.

    Cons

    It is a big company and as such you can expect the usual downsides to working on a large company. It is not as agile as a startup and there are many process that have been put in place over the years to make sure bad things do not happen.

    Advice to Management

    The current strategy has proven successful in the business world so management must be doing something right. If I were to change anything it would be in improving the perception customers have of the support provided by the company.

    Pros

    Extraordinary investment in R&D and leading edge solutions through internal investment as well as acquisitions like RightNow and Taleo and others

    Cons

    Very intense work environment with a performance oriented culture. Almost everyone needs to be relatively technical to keep up with their managers and the rest of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in people and be open to hiring new people even if they have orthogonal views from the norm or historical perspectives. What has made Oracle great may not be as critical to its future as management expects. There may be new skills and experiences needed.
