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

    Pros

    Stable company with large number of in house opportunities.
    Strong fiscal focus and ability to weather financial challenges

    Cons

    Bureaucratic processes and lack of ability to replace lost personnel.
    Compensation process has very little to do with group performance and individual contribution.
    Definitely feels like a big company

    Advice to Management

    Driving initiatives without the willingness to spend money to make them happen is an exercise in frustration.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of resources, lots of opportunities to learn new technologies, endless amount of work, high chance of getting your work into product, not asked to work on narrow focus, good medical benefits

    Cons

    hardly any raises, some of my colleagues were getting paid well below the industry average for their skill level, lots of take-overs and mergers leading to politics in upper levels of management and cause endless reorganizations. culture is very focused on business and bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    share the wealth. Perks to employees like a gym and good food at the expense of a low salary discriminate against the employees' families.
