Nice place to work and learn, decent benefits but no pay raises even after several years of good work.

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

Pros

Lots of great support from management. Tons of classes and online training available. Strong management with fairly well defined processes. Plenty of opportunities to pursue other job opportunities within Oracle. Ability to work from home or in office as desired.

Cons

No profit sharing or bonuses. Even with company provided discounts, health insurance is still fairly expensive. Was told there was a wage freeze during the entire time I was there - even after getting above average reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure your employees are compensated for good performance.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Redwood City, CA

    I worked at Oracle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary is somewhat higher than average.

    Cons

    Politics and non-technical management. Developers' opinions are generally disregarded, policies are pushed from the top. Very little bonuses for development. All designs are done by product managers (which should be up to development), and developers are left to code. The problem is that product managers are generally MBAs who have no idea about software architecture, and their design breaks very soon. No job growth. Largely mismanaged sales-driven company. Very large developer's turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate and reward developers. Give the design and architecture to development.
