    I worked at Oracle full-time (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.

    Pros

    Oracle provides competitive pay and benefits. Depending on the organization you are in, there may be opportunities for growth and promotion into management.

    Cons

    Support for engineers to do their jobs well is minimal. Senior management generally cares more about costs rather than providing adequate tools to their developers. Also, Oracle requires that their developers use a proprietary source control system, which lacks many features that would be standard in open source options.
