I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Reasonable company, pleasant working environment.
I always felt like I had the opportunity to make a case for a project or an idea or to bring an argument forward. Almost always listened.
A company where entrepreneurial spirit is welcome - what is not explicitly forbidden is allowed.
A great company to be in IT. Lots to learn, lots of intelligent people around.

Cons

Quite dissuasive of changing country.
Salary slowly evolving (regardless of the rampant inflation in emerging countries) created odd situations where a newer colleague had almost double the salary just because arrived more recently?
No true HR involvement in career development - actually not a very structured career development.
Cost reductions and cutting exercises increasingly frustrating.
Company evolving from an engineer's one to bean counters and from a visionary technology creator to a next blazing tech whiz buyout administrator.

Advice to Management

N/A - they know what they are doing, unflamboyant as it may be.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work on a product based platform
    Get to handle responsibilities single handedly, so good exposure in terms of learning

    Cons

    Not using the cutting edge technologies as the product have older versions as well
    Work not distributed in an efficient manner. Either you will be burdened with work for a short span or you will be completely idle for many months.. so balance is missing

    Advice to Management

    Please manage the work and resources well
