    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary and commissions, benefits great, gym etc...
    Great products!
    Working with switched on ppl!
    Really picking up now with the Cloud
    Very respectful and switched on MD

    Cons

    Not many, very busy and never stops!
    Lots of change, good and bad
    Process crazy!
    New HR Director a little negative, no offence

    Advice to Management

    More communication across the business and some more positive energy
    Everyone is working hard, I believe every area whether it's sales, support, management, operations, recruitment, administration, consulting - don't put down people unless you have spent some months doing their job. Takes a whole team to succeed.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very broad and deep portfolio of IT products, solutions and services. Best kept secret is that the cloud applications (SaaS) portfolio is the richest in the industry. Oracle is also becoming very capable in IaaS and PaaS, in the main matching or exceeding any competitor's cloud services. Oracle hosting centres in place and growing. Oracle holds a lot of potential in the increasingly hybrid cloud world.

    Cons

    Oracle has a poor reputation with some customers and is the subject of some negative industry sentiment, which can be hard to stomach for employees of Oracle. Customer sentiment is mainly taking aim at *historical* experiences where customer perceives that Oracle has behaved arrogantly in commercial engagements. Oracle is quite rigid in terms of sticking to policies and internal processes, which often stifles employee engagement, trust and ability to engage with customers in a more responsive and agile way. Read your compensation plan carefully, negotiate your pay well coming onboard, salary increases aren't frequent occurences.

    Advice to Management

    Further work required to simplify both customer experience and drive improved employee engagement.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Work on many leading edge technology, help corporations operate efficiently and eliminate mundane and repetitive jobs, automate everything!

    Work on software with a life span that will outlast you and your kids generation. Interesting, never bored and the market needs it completed yesterday.

    Innovate and get a certified patent with your name attached. Awesome!

    Good Health care benefits and the most flexible work environment.

    Up to you as to how far you like to climb the career ladder. Salary is up to you, as in how much you want to achieve for the company. You are one out of thousands of achievers.

    Very good internal support systems once you know how to use them and where to find them.

    Won't go bust anytime soon.

    Entertaining founder, famously respected for his company as for his infamous lifestyle.

    Cons

    For the initiated, you can get lost in the corporate machine but there's always guidance available to get you back on path.

    Company hasn't t been in flavor and has lost mind share.

    All the trimmings of a global multinational that operates in nearly every country. Many sub ecosystems in the company, some fast pace and leading but some still stuck in a bureaucratic environment.

    Lots of whingers as it comes with lots of employees. Avoid the zombies, and they are rotting.

    Lack of leadership.
