    Pros

    Health and dental benefits. Occasional team lunches.

    Cons

    I have worked for Oracle just under two years. In that time, management has changed several times. The first manager allowed us to work up to 10 hours a week OT if we wanted. As I work in a datacenter there is always work to do. Next manager pretty much said no OT period. From what I hear, Oracle doesn't give raises. I haven't received a raise even thought I have received a promotion.

    Pros

    Iracke (especially product development) is full of driven, results-oriented, type A people. If you're looking to grow your career and work hard, Oracle is the place for you.

    Cons

    If you're timid, easily offended, or not smart, Oracle is not the place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the internal applications. They make doing routine administrative tasks (e.g. performance appraisals, virtual training, approving new hires, etc) really annoying.
