    Pros

    Lot of responsibilities and accountability. Challenging opportunities. Fridays are essentially off for consulting profile. Opportunities to grow are available. Pay is average.

    Cons

    To much restructuring can undo some of the goodwill yo have gained up. Reporting managers rarely have much control on promotions/raises other than recommending.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    work life balance is amazing. You can crawl, walk, run, whatever you like. Of course, if you work hard you will be rewarded. The HQ campus is amazing, probably the most beautiful of all Bay Area companies. Thy gym is super awesome, and food is top notch. All product development teams have a program for recent college grads called Oracle College Hires (OCH). Free trips to Reno, white water rafting, free lunches, social mixers with all other college hires, wine and beer socials, cruises and crazy events every week! As a college grad, you will know more than a 100 people just like you within the first month. Great program to keep college grads here, amazing perks and something you would never expect at a B2B Enterprise company.

    Cons

    Incremental raises are small. If you want to get a big salary hike, consider switching teams / rolls. Job title and Salaries aren't correlated. The best best to getting a big salary is to leave and join back. Recent hires get a very competitive salary. which is larger than that of people with 3-5 years experience!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle still has the Big Giant Enterprise company image even though a lot of cool stuff is coming out of the assembly line. Try and fix that with cooler technologies. Fusion Tap, Cloud and Apps is a move in the right direction.
