I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Reasonable company, pleasant working environment.
I always felt like I had the opportunity to make a case for a project or an idea or to bring an argument forward. Almost always listened.
A company where entrepreneurial spirit is welcome - what is not explicitly forbidden is allowed.
A great company to be in IT. Lots to learn, lots of intelligent people around.

Cons

Quite dissuasive of changing country.
Salary slowly evolving (regardless of the rampant inflation in emerging countries) created odd situations where a newer colleague had almost double the salary just because arrived more recently?
No true HR involvement in career development - actually not a very structured career development.
Cost reductions and cutting exercises increasingly frustrating.
Company evolving from an engineer's one to bean counters and from a visionary technology creator to a next blazing tech whiz buyout administrator.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

N/A - they know what they are doing, unflamboyant as it may be.

    Pros

    Employee focus and good perks. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Long term vision ambiguous. Management innovation needed. Employee satisfaction varies between divisions since there are many acquired entities. For the same reason, there is no homogeneous culture and team dynamics varies a lot between teams and divisions.
