I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good company to work for if you have a family. Flexible working hours. Good health insurance. (Sorry I know I have to make it a minimum 20 words but it is really hard to figure out any other pros...)

Cons

This company treats old employee very badly. I never receive a raise in the past four years. No bonus or anything related. There is no paid group lunch or dinner. No annual parties etc. Talented people leave frequently coz upper management do not value their contribute.

Advice to Management

Treat your loyal employees better than the new hires. Should give out annual raises at least to beat the inflation!

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

    Pros

    Great people.
    Great products that are world class

    Cons

    Lack of career opportunities, and stagnation

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a focus on generating more Learning and Career Opportunities for employees.
    Cross training across products would help and would prevent employees getting stuck in silos.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, adaptive and learning organization. Tremendous resources for employees, customers and partners. Incredible ecosystem of products. Amazing depth to the management team.

    Cons

    Internal business processes can get very convoluted. Frequent re-orgs can be tiring but it is an adaptive company adjusting based on market conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay can be improved and performance based comp i.e., bonus is sub par to rest of IT companies of similar size. Please simplify the internal processes. All the approvals and red tape suck the fun out of working here.

    Allowing to work from home is nice and covering the cost of high speed internet would be even better.
