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

    Pros

    Oracle is a very well run company at the macro level, competes well in its core businesses and has a positive financial outlook. There are lots of people working here who care and are willing to do whatever it takes to make customers successful. There are opportunities for training and internal transfers and the environment at HQ is positive with great cafes, an onsite gym, a piano in on of the lobbies, and a number of other employee services.

    Cons

    Culturally, Oracle tends to be managed in a top-down style and is also very geographically distributed in some lines of business, which makes it more difficult to feel connected, heard and integral in influencing business results. It also leads to some interesting work styles and work hours, and can be demanding in terms of needing to jump on things right away (even if they are not really emergencies) because you don't want to block progress in other timezones.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Good infrastructure and global presence. Great work culture.

    Cons

    Salaries are not as per market standards and they should definitely do the survey and revise salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Don't limit bonus only to top executives. Distribute bonus to first level of management also.
