    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training and opportunity for recent grads, can move up quickly, tons of opportunity.

    Cons

    Such a large company creates a lot of confusion about what is going on and internal politics between many reps being mapped to the same account can cause conflict. Some organizations are less successful than other, not a con, just be weary that often your org can determine how successful you will be. Very old school values in terms of work life balance, not much WFH in my experience ( though usually depends on... manager).

    Pros

    Great for work-life balance and the comfort of job security Pivotal moment in time as a Cloud vendor. We're not leading right now, but are positioned to become huge in the cloud which is exciting. Nice HQ office, with a killer gym They do take employee feedback somewhat seriously.

    Cons

    Most of the concerns of a huge company. Getting things done takes time, influencing big strategic changes is very very difficult. There's no concept of feedback or evaluation of one's performance, and in turn no bonuses or raises. Raises and promotions are basically bound to the number of years you spend here. There is little to motivate you to perform better except the love for your work itself.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to think about a process of motivating your employees either through promotions and raises based on hard work, or other kinds of benefits. Also important to be strategic in the new processes being implemented and aim to be a more open culture like Microsoft has become in the past decade, to stay relevant and liked in the industry.
