    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Stable company with large number of in house opportunities.
    Strong fiscal focus and ability to weather financial challenges

    Cons

    Bureaucratic processes and lack of ability to replace lost personnel.
    Compensation process has very little to do with group performance and individual contribution.
    Definitely feels like a big company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Driving initiatives without the willingness to spend money to make them happen is an exercise in frustration.

    Depends on one's manager. One can bet here comfortably for decades if you suck up to your manager.
