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

    Pros

    - Work From Home (WFH) is nice. Everybody in my group works from home on average once a week
    - SPARC is an awesome architecture. Other products are equally innovative/complex
    - No layoffs
    - Good perks: free sodas, coffee, pool tables, ping pong tables in some buildings

    Cons

    - Not challenging enough. Company hires tons of NCGs so work is spread out, meaning that as an experienced engineer you dont do much. I guess this is a pro if you have a family or like time off.
    - No bonuses. Again, company focuses on hiring NCGs rather than giving raises.
    - Hard to move within the company. Jobs with more impact potential are usually taken by ppl with 10-15 yrs of experience. Not necessarily true in other big companies Ive worked for
    - Company is overwhelmingly biased towards hiring from one particular race (maybe cause most managers are from that race too?), at least in Santa Clara. This is a problem because there is a language barrier, most don't have good communication skills and know 60% english, at best. I always wondered how some of these engineers got through the interview process. Its shocking. I wouldnt be surprised if the interviews themselves were carried in their language. I am all about hiring ppl from any race (im monirity as well), but please make sure they know english and can communicate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Hire people based on merit, and communication skills. Managers tent to hire engineers of their own race.
    - Too much hiring of unexperienced engineers.
    - Provide more group/company wide social events
