I worked at Oracle

Pros

Got to work with some great people, particularly in my team.
Exposed to some interesting hardware and software, allowing me to learn things that normally would have to be learned outside of the working day.
Work from home policy, while not official, can be handy. More so for people like me who suffer migraines, allowing to avoid the hassle of commutes/travel but not use a sick day if the migraine is "bearable".

Cons

No real rewards for hard work done. Level increases happen but in name only.
With level increase you are expected to do more work at the new level but for the same pay as before.
After three and a half years working there, having met every target and goal set before me and even going above and beyond, never once got a pay raise.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward your workers and you will keep them. If you expect to get more work for less wage don't be surprised that people leave.

    Pros

    Oracle is a good place to work, if you really wanted to grow technically. These are the following pros :
    1) Good technical growth
    2) chance to work with lit if smart & very experienced people
    3) Good management support for highly motivated & enthusiastic candidates
    4) Excellent work environment, as managers themselves are very technical.
    5) Performance is recognized and rewarded with promotion.

    Cons

    1) Hike/bonus is normally relatively less, event if you are a outstanding candidate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To retain the good talent, give them the good bonus/hike.
