    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Huge and unbounded scope of learning
    2. If you are technically sound, company will respect you. If you are not, their are lots of people to teach you
    3. No politics, at least in in OBP Development, Mumbai
    4. Package wont be great, but suffice to lead a comfortable life in Mumbai
    5. Average increment is good.
    6. Great work culture, inter team relationship.

    Cons

    1. No bonus or variable.
    2. No onsite if you are in development
    3. No external activities [ though people are so good you wont require any external activity]
    4. High attrition

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give developers chance to prove themselves at onsite [In OBP], they will perform better.

    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible work culture as most of the managers are a mix of Oracle corporation and Oracle India pvt. ltd. The work culture is extremely flexible. Work from home is popular. No mandatory 8/9/10 hours etc. No dress code (no formals etc), Free bus service and lots of reimbursements.

    Cons

    Salary hike is irregular and worst! Some of my colleagues got an avg of 15% in 2 years some unlucky ones got single digit hikes for 2 years. Appraisals are not done on an year to year basis. Company comes up with excuses but eventually makes sure that they appraise the employee at least every 2 year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to stream line appraisal process and also need to come up with employee retention schemes.

    Pros

    1- Good work life balance.
    2- Some teams got good project and some not.
    3- No hidden cut in salary. Most of it are in hand.
    4- Flexibility in work.
    5- less politics.

    Cons

    1- Management strategy is not good. They say, they don't know about any decision taken by the company.
    2- Hiring policy is very bad, No transparency at all. A mechanical guy who doesn't know about java is doing development and a computer science topper is in support.
    3- Retention policy is not good.
    4- salary is a concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to keep good people ,And please correct your hiring policy. its disastrous.
