I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The benefits at Oracle are decent. Your job satisfaction will depend upon the group you are in. The hiring process is long and cumbersome, but once at Oracle, you have many opportunities for changing positions and groups. Your salary is however unlikely to keep up with the market.

Cons

This is a large company and it is hard at times to find out who is doing what. Incentives and compensation growth opportunities are depending upon the group in which you are. Some groups are well taken care of while others are not. It is important to be hired with the highest salary you can get. It is common for employees to get their salary readjusted upon being re-hired (after leaving the company for a few years).

Advice to Management

There are no corporate-wide program for the retention of top talent. Managers are given a bonus pool for their entire team, and try to use this pool as best they can to reward top-performers. Very little people leadership with top executives. LJE is not a very inspirational person...

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

    Pros

    Great place to sit back and do nothing.

    Cons

    Office culture is bad. It is a volatile environment with back-stabbing people. Poor managers that outsource and so worried about the bottom line, as passed down from Larry, that it ruined the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back caring into the people of the company.

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

    Pros

    Stable job, smart people, work-life balance, benefits

    Cons

    No matter how excellent you perform you don't get raise or even praise, NO SALARY RAISE FOR 3+ YEARS OR ANY BONUSES. No motivations.

    Advice to Management

    There is appraisal review every year but there should be salary or compensations review or raise for employees who are performing excellent or extra ordinary jobs. And there should be personal growth.
