    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good remuneration and conditions ...if you are in the right role. The company is attempting change.

    Cons

    Remains an oil tanker of IT. Inefficient, inflexible and bureaucratic. Roles and territories are inflexible. Remains quarterly results focussed.

    Advice to Management

    Transform. Discard 20 years of internal process accumulation and free up the customer facing business to work with customers, not minimise damage to them. Re-structure to strategically engage with clients over a long-term, instead of targeting tactical, short-term commercial results.
