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

    Pros

    Very flexible works hours/location
    Very good side benefits (good, cheap cafeterias, gym, discounts at restaurants etc)

    Cons

    Working as a coder in Oracle can be depressing. The developers there tend to be sub-par. Management randomly cancels whole products, not just projects. Late night calls to India can be thoroughly frustrating as a) you can't hear them b)they can't hear you and c) the developers in India are generally completely useless

    Advice to Management

    Fire about 80% of your development staff

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

    Pros

    Good place to work as a first job. If you start in a group which is working on a new product you will learn a lot.
    Nice facilities in the campus.
    Relaxed work culture.
    Secure job.

    Cons

    Not great salary and increment is very less.
    Almost no bonus, depends on the product you are working on.
    Career growth is slow.

    Advice to Management

    Fresh graduates are getting more salary than people working for 3 years. Doesn't make sense.
