    Pros

    Excellent product dev and marketing means there are always good sales opportunities. You just need to find the right spot. Oracle's name on your CV should help in the long term.

    Cons

    Culture of infighting can get in the way of business and customers hate the way the Oracle throws 20 sales people at them, each from a separate ljne of business and competing for the same customer budget and to be seen as the "Account Manager"

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in IP and brand but provide more direction to make sure field sales is coordinated. Don't just leave it to the sales guys as they will always go in there every man for himself.

    Pros

    Financially stable and growing, good training opportunities, unlikely to decline in the IT market, it has market leading database technology.

    Cons

    Shareholders are more important than customers or employees. Revenue growth and margin attainment drives everything.

    Advice to Management

    Look after customers and employees and shareholders in equal balance.

    Pros

    - Often no guidance, so you can come late and leave early
    - Easy to get in to
    - Oracle will look good on your resume when you leave
    - Almost 100% of the grads leave and manage to get a job somewhere else, where they might actually enjoy (there are almost no past grads still working here)

    Cons

    - Low salary and policies in place to prevent you having more than 10% increase, although even if that policy was in place, you wouldn't get an increase more than inflation because management will not approve it
    - the graduate manager will meet you in the first week and then not have anything to do with you for the rest of the program and the manager of your rotation will not want to have anything to do with you
    - not really much opportunity for growth and learning because no one will allocate any resources to you
    - the average age is over 40 so there is no real social feeling in the office
    - the different lines of business are very separate from each other which makes for lack of team spirit and difficulty in internal process with working together

    Advice to Management

    - Provide Grads opportunities for growth and development
    - Only hire as many grads as you have the capacity to mentor
    - Implement a payment increase plan, unique to grads, that ignores the raise-limit, so that after the program, grads have the opportunity to work their way up to market rate as their competencies develop (that way, you won't be training people up for other companies)
    - Wake up, and see what's happening around you. There is no way to retain Grads, post-program, with the current conditions. They're not stupid.

  10. Freedom in determining own work compensates to some extend to the major flaws of the organisation

    Pros

    There are plenty of highly experienced people.
    Possible to move from one job or position to another.
    Always loads of new things to learn.

    Cons

    Working cross LOBs is frustrating
    An employee is one amongst thousands
    Middle management has little decision power
