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

    Pros

    Great opportunities if they're taken advantage of. Many divisions offer flexible work schedules and they have a fairly relaxed dress code for non-sales or marketing. Oracle's huge, and there may likely be travel opportunities, but the company does incorporate telepresence and in-house telecommunication applications. The benefits are pretty on-par for the course.

    Cons

    Raises and salaries are often a herculean struggle to fight for. Upper-management will start/engage in many projects but skip-level meetings and top-down engagements to get the status of "the boots on the ground" are too rare. There are no employee-only conferences for many divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth, employees see when the company is doing great. Also, invest in team building better -- management needs to take employee morale into effect far better to get the best efficiencies.

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

    Pros

    There is a lot of training and availability to work remote. Some Great people if in the right group.

    Cons

    They never pay you on time or correctly. They never give salary increases for promotions or moves to more prominent roles.

    Advice to Management

    You get what you pay for. Pay employees what they are worth.
