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

Pros

The actual work is good

Cons

Salary is the worst. Immediate managers spent too much time trying to lie about how good this is for you !!

Advice to Management

I understand your need to cut costs . But you keep the salaries of actual Engineers and Managers, but pay heavily for all director level people who lead almost retired lives . BAD ECONOMICS !

    Pros

    Good health care benefits, stable company.

    Cons

    Hard work, loyalty, knowledge are not rewarded. Raises and bonuses have been dismal for many years, and the latest round was an insult. At the same time, aggressive schedules have ratcheted up stress and pressure. It's getting more and more political, and teamwork is affected. Top management does not seem to realize, or doesn't care, that in a software company, most of the knowledge is in people's heads, and when they leave, it leaves with them. The longer you stay, the further behind you fall in terms of compensation as compared to the market. People are leaving, but I guess to top management, not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth. Reward your employees. There should be more vacation days.
