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

    Pros

    In software development, job environment is generally stable with opportunity to work on different products & roles. Remote work from home or work from one of the several globally distributed offices is generally allowed. In the benefits, Medical plans are pretty good.

    Cons

    HR practices are generally geared only towards legal compliance activities & protecting the management & company from lawsuits otherwise it's indifferent towards team building & other fun activities. In the long term salaries stagnate & raises are painfully low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It shouldn't be such an impersonal atmosphere for the employees. The employees should feel connected & cared for. "Leadership is about people. Period. " -Gary Kelly, CEO Southwest Airlines.

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

    Pros

    Very professional people to work with, wide knowledge spectrum

    Cons

    Very slow salary hike if any at all .. Once you are hired, it will be really hard to have any salary adjustment based on awards, promotion, performance etc...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The salary adjustment and yearly increase is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. It makes it appealing to look outside for a better paying company.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing flexibility and great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Less than market comp packages, no real career growth and sub par product teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in true R&D and build great products. Hire great people by quality not the cheap talent by numbers, otherwise you will end up in law suits (remember Oregon state:) ).

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will be in some of the best conversations of your career--a very smart company with great colleagues when you find your tribe within the organization. Great customers, and great opportunities to learn new things all the time.

    Cons

    There are no merit pay increases. Being a great performer is not rewarded at all. I was talking to a colleague that just left the organization and he had not had a raise since 2009. Another colleague had not had a raise in 15 years! There are instances where they just take pay away because they are not going to offer that benefit anymore. There also seems to be no effort to retain really good to great talent.
