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

Pros

Flexible schedule, great benefits, competitive pay. Job security is huge too. Employees are rarely let go... Even if they should be.

Cons

This place breeds complacency. The employee make-up is a mixed bag due to the countless acquisitions and therefore a company culture doesn't really exist. If you're looking for a place to become employee number xxx thousand and get lost in the shuffle, this is the place for you. If you're ambitious and have professional drive, go somewhere else.

Advice to Management

Recognize talent and promote from within. So many great employee get ignored, and ultimately quit, because management is terrified about mentoring/training qualified employees only to be replaced by said employees.

    Solid Company, great opportunities, complete product lines.

    Cons

    Sometimes the size of the company gets in the way, but I guess that is the way with any large company.
