    The only thing Oracle hates more than its customers are its employees

    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Plenty of employee parking. I never had to search for a space. Covered parking was also available, which was nice in the summer.

    Cons

    Too much in-fighting between groups. Extremely "political" (many decisions based on who-you-know instead of what-you-know.)

    Every group I worked with at Oracle deeply felt that their group was considered "the bottom of the barrel." Every group believed that they were the less-favored group (engineering, marketing, legal, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-adjust your core values to take better care of your employees, then live by those values.

    Good company to work for, but very poor talent management.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    - Excellent comp and benefits.
    - Very flexible working conditions.
    - Good working environment.
    - Possibly good carreer opportunities.

    Cons

    - They are very bad at evaluating employee performance accurately and objectively.
    - Lots of staff not doing much, a few successful employees doing all the work.
    - No culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Employee performance should be monitored at a global level, so all regions/countries/departments are on the same level.
    - Too much management and too few high performing dynamic staff, it happens very often that some teams have more managers than actual contributors doing actual work.
