    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    With my role I feel I can treat this role as my own business, whilst having the resources and people around me to help us succeed. Culture is great, there are some whingers here and there but maybe they have reason to be a bit negative, I'm not sure. But mostly positive, fun and kind people. I have to say the new Management and leadership team is getting better all the time, really respectful decent people who treat you with manners and kindness. Makes a difference! I still miss Ian White our old MD, who was the nicest man but things are going well with the new leadership team. Although to be hones I have not had much to do with them.

    Of course with this type of leadership we are going to work harder and harder to succeed.

    Lots of work life balance, can work from home when needed, lots of resources and people to help. Great Health Insurance benefits, life insurance etc.. Great salary, and commission!

    Cons

    Still some people who like to whinge a bit and bring others down, not much a con that's okay!
    Would prefer to have a Manager in Australia not overseas.
    There are some people who don't put in much at all and you have to work in same team as them and cover them, that's tough, maybe unfair! Esp when you working late nights and they had to take off early every single day when they started late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like what's happening now.
    I like the positive feel of the company and I just hope it stays this way.
    In past we have had some nasty VP's who really used scare tactics, talking behind their employees back etc to manage and it was just awful. They all gone now and it's so nice and inspiring now!
    Don't blame a whole team for the errors of Managers who sometimes are not very good at making decisions so they blame a support team or someone who is assisting them in Oracle. I hear didn't make numbers because this team didn't deliver, not true..
