    Pros

    part of enterprise architecture and technology.

    Cons

    management focused on bottomline and not particularly concerned about employees. On the contrary, encourages competition between employees and teams.

    Advice to Management

    more can be achieved by focusing on building a values-based engineering team - motivate members to come together to produce the best usable design and not just focus on their piece.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, great technology, a lot of money in the bank.

    Cons

    Inconsistent with focal reviews and bonuses. Very few people below Manager level seem to be awarded any stock options. Make sure you get hired at a salary you can live with for at least three years.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities in fair and consistent focal reviews. Raises should be based on the previous year targets and company goals, not Q1 of the fiscal new year. Employees are deserving of stock options, even those who are IC and below manager level.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will work with bright and hard working people most of the time. Oracle has a rich history and a lot of talented management that have been around for many years. Also, Oracle is huge and there are a lot of opportunities in different areas.
    Overall, I believe there is an excellent work life balance. This is truly one of the best reasons to work at Oracle. Most of all management understand this and are supportive and encouraging in taking care of business at home and work.

    Cons

    Oracle is in the midst of a rough transition to the Cloud. They are late to the game but are investing significantly. In certain areas they are still losing marketshare or are very stagnant. There is significant turnover in certain areas of the business.

    Promotions are hard to come by. Management can be thick and superfluous at times.

    Pay is lackluster in comparison to most of the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to support your A players.
    Figure out a better way to engage across pillars and lines of business.

    Pros

    Remote Work (keeps you away from the insane office politics)

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Culture is very robotic. Oracle is cheap in relation to work equipment and productivity software, I mean Libre Office and Zimbra??

    Advice to Management

    no advice, oracle is its own worse enemy. Good luck in the cloud space you're going to need it!
