I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

Pros

none. Oracle is not a place to work. A bad choice

Cons

Arrogant people, bad HR and most of all, no focus. They just have a database that sells, and the rest is junk. However they bribe their ways into most government orders and make their money. The company should be thoroughly investigated for it's actions and source of funds.

Advice to Management

Close down the company, take your money and leave. Quit messing it up for the rest of the industry.

    Pros

    Got to work with some great people, particularly in my team.
    Exposed to some interesting hardware and software, allowing me to learn things that normally would have to be learned outside of the working day.
    Work from home policy, while not official, can be handy. More so for people like me who suffer migraines, allowing to avoid the hassle of commutes/travel but not use a sick day if the migraine is "bearable".

    Cons

    No real rewards for hard work done. Level increases happen but in name only.
    With level increase you are expected to do more work at the new level but for the same pay as before.
    After three and a half years working there, having met every target and goal set before me and even going above and beyond, never once got a pay raise.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your workers and you will keep them. If you expect to get more work for less wage don't be surprised that people leave.

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

    Pros

    company is profitable, a market leader and has a good reputation. Company continues to grow.

    Cons

    salary increases are minimal or non-existent. Company exercises a level of financial prudence that sometimes seems too conservative. transferring jobs within the company (especially across borders) is more complicated than it should be.

    Advice to Management

    continue to exercise prudence to maintain profitability, but make an effort to loosen the belt in areas that will give you a return on investment. Good talent leaves the company all the time for more money. Hiring replacements for them (for more money than the person who left was paid) doesn't make sense. spend the extra money to retain good people.
