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

    Pros

    Big company, not likely to fail. Has benefits, but they are average for the industry.

    Cons

    They do not care about their employees. The best talent is not rewarded, and so they end up leaving for opportunities elsewhere. While they do provide a pretty good experience for switching jobs within the company, they do not typically adjust compensation even if the new position is a promotion and/or assumes more responsibility.

    Their "self-serve" help desk is frustrating and can take months to resolve computer issues.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your talent. Treat your employees like people, not like hardware resources that are easily discarded and replaced.
