    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ok work life balance as there is a large Engineer population (for now)

    Cons

    -No career path
    -Great work not really recognised
    -Internal competition for your job from lower cost countries (due to their global reach/capabilities)
    -Rapid reduction in your value whilst overloading you with requirements without effective training
    -Culture of aggressive cost cutting but without real consideration of it's impacts on staff

    -Culture based on fear and compliance
    -Lack of interdepartmental co-operation (competitive)
    -High manager to staff ratio
    -Culture of "Superiority" of Original Oracle Staff vs acquired Oracle Companies
    -You have to know about something to be able to ask about it. If you didn't, well... that's tough.
