Upper management from USA needs to stop being "duped" take off blinders and spend some quality time to how this hub is managed. It's a shame.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ok work life balance as there is a large Engineer population (for now)

    Cons

    -No career path
    -Great work not really recognised
    -Internal competition for your job from lower cost countries (due to their global reach/capabilities)
    -Rapid reduction in your value whilst overloading you with requirements without effective training
    -Culture of aggressive cost cutting but without real consideration of it's impacts on staff

    -Culture based on fear and compliance
    -Lack of interdepartmental co-operation (competitive)
    -High manager to staff ratio
    -Culture of "Superiority" of Original Oracle Staff vs acquired Oracle Companies
    -You have to know about something to be able to ask about it. If you didn't, well... that's tough.

    Pros

    1. Get to learn various enterprise technologies
    2. Organization structure and team balance is good.

    4.

    Cons

    1. Mediocre starting salary, nothing compared to what Google/Amazon/Microsoft provides right from the beginning.
    2. Employee tends to loose touch with basic concepts because of heavy use of frameworks and architecture.
    3. Over emphasis on processes to follow.
    4. Too big organization makes it difficult for an individual to shine individually.

    Advice to Management

    1. If its difficult for you to pay good amount, don't make faces when someone leaves the company with that reason.
