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

    Pros

    Good job security. Lot of learning opportunity - mainly through online (self-learning) tools. Excellent, supportive people - especially in the Customer Support and Development organizations. Managers at lower and middle levels are generally quite respectful and considerate towards employees. Not sure if the same can be said about other groups like Consulting, Sales etc.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for career growth, especially in the US. Pay does not grow much either. Being a huge organization with lots of acquisitions, they are probably trying to get rid of people than hire, especially in the Sales and other common administrative functions - which is understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the purse strings a bit and give some flexibility to the HR people to organize some employee-friendly "Developmental" activities.. most organizations have HRD departments - where the D stands for Development.. that seems to be missing in Oracle.
