    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    none. Oracle is not a place to work. A bad choice

    Cons

    Arrogant people, bad HR and most of all, no focus. They just have a database that sells, and the rest is junk. However they bribe their ways into most government orders and make their money. The company should be thoroughly investigated for it's actions and source of funds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Close down the company, take your money and leave. Quit messing it up for the rest of the industry.

    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.
