    I worked at Oracle (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best enterprise-grade technology out there if not the best.

    Comprehensive and well-integrated stack, ranging from hardware to Data as a Service.

    You learn a lot in both technical, as well as commercial terms.

    A huge business network that you can leverage.

    Great offices, particularly the London office.

    Cons

    The transition to becoming a cloud company is painful and can get really confusing for customers, as well as internally.

    A little too much bureaucracy.

    Generally complex and slow to navigate to where you need to get to.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more true-cloud/born-in-the-cloud people to join the front lines, not just at HQ and for product development.

    Take a leap of faith and go all cloud.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is good as a consultant travelling in Europe - 3 or 4 days on and 1 or 2 days at home. Bonuses are quarterly, and can be very rewarding - depending on sales performance. Flexible Benefit Point scheme is great to choose what you need that year (I.e. more cash, more holiday or child vouchers). Experienced work force - best of the best. Get to know everyone from the top of the chain to the bottom.

    Cons

    Pay rises are small in comparison to anything else. Progression is good to start with but can become stagnant. Not always clear on how to get to next level or where to go in career direction. Can sometimes not be very social, depending on the project.

    Advice to Management

    Love working for oracle but it seems like you have to leave the company and come back to get the best pay rises.
