I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good work life balance. Lots of products and opportunities

Cons

Large company with sometimes many groups doing the same thing. Acquisitions lead to some amount of uncertainty. Pay if you are a long term employee is not up to market standards.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the technology current and give long time employees more salary revisions.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn software development and sales practices from a top software company.
    Competitive (not the best but far from the worst) salaries and benefits.
    In general, people are treated as professionals with a high level of personal autonomy.

    Cons

    Typical large corporation problems: Lack of agility when seeking to make changes or introduce innovation (it can take a long time to get things done).
    Different groups become silos, introducing competition or mistrust where cooperation should exist.
    The compensation processes (raises, promotions, bonuses) are not very transparent, often creating doubt and uncertainty. Hard to fully understand why they are given, or if they'll be given. This stems from a lack of access to upper management for many employees.
    This, in turn, comes from the often distributed, home based work force. We don't see each other, which slows team formation and prevents knowledge sharing.
