    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance, flexible working hours, laid-back management style, challenging work, good benefits, smart people to work with, flexible time-off policies

    Cons

    Limited promotion, stagnant compensation, only higher ups benefit from stock buybacks since it pads their stock options, which most regular employees do not get. Capped vacation days at 18 days forever. Only 7 observed holidays. Quite a few employees are likely not reporting vacation days due to the low number given by the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote the good people so that they stay and the expertise does not walk out the door. Adjust compensation to account for, at least, cost of living adjustments. Consider increasing vacation days to, at least, an additional 5 days especially considering observed holidays is on the low side. Hire more people in the US instead of outsourcing. US employees pay US taxes and contribute to US economy.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility is here but in the summer policies are changing. The job is stable and people who are working have been generally here 10+ years.

    Cons

    Absolutely no growth opportunity to move across groups or change in Pay. Very few raises if any. Literally have to wait for someone to retire or quit for promotions. Even grade changes provides no significant pay bump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide raises.

    Great people. Lots of work is always around. Built a lot of relationships. Support gets you the feel of being stuck in a niche area, hard to build a career in one specialized area. Very hard to move between organizations.

    Cons

    Limited growth of salary after 5 years. No growth in number of weeks of vacations after 10 years. No bonuses for a while. layoffs.

    Former Employee - Suppoprt Management in Orlando, FL
    Former Employee - Suppoprt Management in Orlando, FL

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is above average for the Orlando area
    Most get the opportunity to work from home.
    Training offered is better than some.

    Cons

    Company is global and is focusing on hiring outside the US
    Even though the margin is very high, this company is bent on increasing their margin every quarter, even at the expense of their employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus a little time and cash flow on taking care of your employees. You will come out ahead in the long run. You are an American company, your actions have an impact here at home. Rethink your staffing strategy.
