    Pros

    Oracle is a successful company with a great legacy as well as a bright future. It is a dynamic organization that manages to continue to grow and maintain profitability and a very strong balance sheet. Oracle is a market leader and joining this company ensures one exposure to exciting new technologies. There are many career opportunities within the various divisions of the Oracle organization. The Oracle brand is highly recognized and respected worldwide. Oracle pays well for performance. While it is by now a very large organization it has been able to retain its entrepreneurial spirit and driven sales culture. Oracle has embraced a virtual work environment and working remote (from home) is leveraged by many. This is not a place for the faint of heart, however, a great place to work for the ambitious and energetic go-getters !

    Cons

    Oracle is very sales oriented and sales driven and sometimes this “street fighters mentality” gets in the way of sounds corporate judgment. Survival of the fittest is part of Oracle’s fabric. Oracle is not for the faint of heart and one must be a self-starter and quick on their feet. Training and support for new hires is often not very well organized. The organization has embraced a virtual working environment (which could also be considered a positive) so the traditional office atmosphere where co-workers meet at the water cooler is not completely gone but no longer normal. While Oracle pays well for performance (and starting salary is competitive) once hired one should not expect frequent salary increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying equal attention to retaining as recruiting talent. Oracle is a great place to work and attracting talent is crucial to fuel the continuing growth of the company. However, retaining such talent and keeping key people on board is equally (if not more) important. Keep any eye on compensation of these key resources… i.e. over time their compensation should at least keep pace with inflation to ensure their buying power remains at level as when they enthusiastically joined the company… and considering their experience one could argue that their compensation should increase as their value to the organization increases… keeping people is still easier than recruiting… and with the improving economy, your top talent and key people have alternatives...
