    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.

    Pros

    Great company and great products. Many intelligent and highly capable people. You can work closely with customers to build amazing solutions that deliver tremendous business value.

    Cons

    Corporate culture doesn't value people. High level of internal competition. Work-life imbalance - all work. Some thrive in the culture, others leave.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Like anywhere else, your milage may vary depending on team, but overall I have found Oracle to be a fantastic company to work for. Lots of flexibility and the politics are not too bad compared to many other big companies.

    - unlimited sick leave is a blessing
    - compensation is above average

    Cons

    - limited professional development opportunities
    - budgets for training and conferences is limited
    - vague / unclear annual review process
    - bonus structure is sketchy at best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little more transparency on how we are being evaluated and some solid rewards for work well done would be a welcome change. My management has been VERY good and I don't have much to complain about except that I would like to know more about the direction of the company and our projects from time to time.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Variety of challenges, great management, flexibility as most employees are at-home workers, solid company and solutions

    Cons

    More about the work-at-home than the company, sometimes remote working reduces collaboration which leads to longer solutions at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what will drive the bottom line, not internal reporting and account planning to justify way too many levels of internal management.
