    Pros

    Large, stable company diversified in many tech areas

    Cons

    -Large company - Difficult to navigate among all the different departments when something is neeeed
    -Raises are non-existent or a pittance
    -Acquisitions that don't fit the existing mold of how things are done are jammed into the round hole and forced to comply...which results in suboptimal results and frustration for new employees

    Advice to Management

    Quit just giving lip service to the concept that your employees are key to your success and start showing it. Realize that the "Oracle Way' might not always be the best way!
