    Advice to Management

    Chaos, get rid of Larry and put a broom through management - the next level of value from Oracle will be released. 8 out of 10 Oracle customers I met over 3 years ranged from 'hate' to ' necessary evil'.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good healthcare Good internal training resources Breadth & depth of solution portfolio

    Cons

    Anything outside of standard requires an approval, process of which often takes ages frustrating clients and staff alike. Systems are often terrible because internally you have to use the Oracle product rather than the market leader

    Advice to Management

    If you can't get rid of some of the approval processes, at least speed them up.

    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Private Health Cover Flexible work options

    Cons

    No increments No bonus Long hours No recognition for back office staff

    Advice to Management

    Appreciation for the employee's hardship would have made a difference. So much is expected but the company does not recognize that it must work both ways. If you speak to some staff you will find that if you allow it, you will be stagnant for years.
