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

Pros

1) Flexible work hours;
2) Nice gym and natural environment at HQ;
3) Good medical insurance;

Cons

1) Not an environment that makes talents stand out;
2) Low salary (after working for few years), low bonus - basically not employee friendly;
3) Move slowly;
4) Performance is judged by number of bugs fixed not quality of work;

Advice to Management

Recognize people's hard and quality work; think more about performance than useless features; let people leave on good terms; don't panic on stupid bugs; don't play politics too much; efficiency is very important so don't have too many useless meetings; let people present their good ideas not BS ones

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, People, the ability to work from home in some cases.

    Cons

    Internal processes are terrible, hard to negotiate through. Several departments for every step, not mapped out anywhere, flying blind, such a waste of time to try to figure it out for the first time. They consider themselves a self service company, meaning, don't ask for help, figure it out. People spend more time trying to figure out how to get something done then actually accomplishing anything. No decision making unless you are a global process owner who define all processes, no choices but to follow along, right or wrong. Small increases if anything. Big offshore outsourcer! No job security.

    Advice to Management

    Caring about your people is the first step in managing!
