    Pros

    Good Compensation
    Lots of flexibility in terms of hours and where I worked.
    Access to some great minds in technology
    Good training

    Cons

    Sales organization revolves around the sales account managers. As a sales engineer in support of the account managers, you don't have much power or room to inject creativity into your work.
    Very competitive culture

    Pros

    resources are never a problem - can find someone to help

    Cons

    too many folks in a meeting has us looking and acting like IBM

    Advice to Management

    too much overlap in products (need to cut and consolidate) and ADF is not what the market wants or needs

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

    Pros

    Wonderful and talented co-workers, can't say enough about them. Great place to work if you have a good manager, which I'm lucky to have. Ability to move around and try a different job.

    Cons

    Company is struggling with Cloud Strategy, work life balance can be tough to manage. Until the company irons out the Cloud strategy and gets back on track it will be a not be a fun place to work. People are beginning to leave aside from the big layoff, for folks that stay it will be a little depressing. I don't think things will turn around for another 1-2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit Cloud strategy, the latest reorg (June,2017) I believe is going in the wrong direction.

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

    Pros

    Great technologies
    Global offices with lot of opportunities

    Cons

    No increment and high chances of underpay especially for long staying staffs. I am appraised as outstanding employee for years, but then I found that my salary is only slight difference with my teammate who is lower rank and less responsibility than me. It hurts

    Advice to Management

    Please review package and pay fairly to performing staffs. There's no point for so called career development plans when you can't even do the basic.
