Pros

Initial package is decent. Teammates are smart and hard working. Be able to learn a lot of stuff over years, which should be good once decided to move on

Cons

Not much pay increases over the years once you are here, even after a promotion. Considering there are always acquisitions, there is some risk of being laid-off. Generally such risks are dependent on the group you are with. Should not be too big a risk.

    I worked at Oracle

    Pros

    They are clear about how thing are to be done and you must follow those procedures.

    Cons

    Took over from Sun - the culture is completely different. SUN was open and creative and allowed work to flow in that manner - Oracle is nothing like that and it drove many good people out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up
