I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- various technologies; if you want to learn, you could always find such a group
- stable; very few layoffs in my 10+ years tenure
- good work/life balance

Cons

- outlook appears murky as Oracle's core business (selling on-premise software) is threatened by cloud providers
- compensation not great for folks staying for too long

Advice to Management

- do some bottom manage-out and hire fresh workforce
- take better care of productive employees;

    "A stable, large company, with it's act together. They are number crunchers though."

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Rock solid company. Job performance is usually rewarded. Trim-running company for how large it is. Lot of talent.

    Cons

    Can be stingy on raises. Know of several times where even top performers were not given a raise. The company depends on "dive and save" a bit much for my taste.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours and location.

    Cons

    I received good reviews from my managers but still had only one salary increase in six years. Clearly there is a huge gap here in terms of compensation/benefits/perks compared to other Bay area companies. You're always expected to overachieve but engineers receive little recognition. Immigration process is terribly slow. Because there are so many remote workers, it's hard to communicate even within your own team members.

    Advice to Management

    Looks like you guys are getting all the money at the expense of hard working engineers!
