    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Superb management that wants to foster professional/personal growth. Solid pay. Working in latest/greatest products in tech.

    Cons

    Corporate culture can be dry. Sometimes so many products it's hard to stay current.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent about salaries/bonuses/raises. Right now it appears to be "take it or leave it" with little explanation after being hired.
