    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Great work life balance and work from home option. Great office if wanted. Free to choose most hotel and airline options when traveling within reason. IE: you don't have to fly spirit and can stay at full service hotels.

    Cons

    Hard to get promotions but hard work is still rewarded.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at Oracle was an honor. Despite being a fresher, my views were always heard, and I had the liberty to propose my own ideas for solving a problem. The faith that my seniors bestowed upon me, boosted always my moral, and made my workplace a sheer pleasure and exciting.
    Proud to work for Oracle!

    Cons

    Sometimes, the collaboration within business units may hamper productivity, but again, it is a completely understood since each business unit has its own priorities.

    Pros

    This has been the best company I have worked for. I'm lucky that I have had great managers that understand my work style and allow me to succeed and grow. There are tons of very smart people that are always willing to help. There is truly a team selling environment.

    Cons

    Internal promotions met you less salary than external hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have salary bands rather than % increases when being promoted

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    It's great to work for a world class company that gets instant recognition instead of blank stares. Also Oracle is now giving raises to high performers. I am in no way micromanged, I have complete independence to manage my part of the business

    Cons

    Somewhat intense, Oracle expects dedication to the cause.

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    Great salary, lots of room for improvement. Good mixture of experience at the office, too reliant on auditing and utilizing other people

    Cons

    No time off, but there are some perks however it might take longer than usual, managers and directors need to stop sucking up to one another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    False promises and they tell you one thing and do not mean it
