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
