    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - overall pretty solid benefits
    - good work-life balance and ability to work from home occasionally
    - obviously depends on the team but I had some great teammates and coworkers

    Cons

    - Not enough work to go around and no real plan for training in the downtime
    - Barely any company culture in non-HQ offices (i.e. no holiday parties, team events, social activities)
    - Don't really value current employees (many quit and return shortly after for promotions/raises

    Advice to Management

    Stop giving upper management multi-million dollar raises every year and invest in lower level employees more

    Pros

    I worked for oracle financial services software. You learn a lot in this company. The training was good. The timing is flexible. I can come and go anytime if the job assigned to you is completed.

    Cons

    The salary is a concern. You are not given increment every other year. They try to compensate it with the bonus at the year end which sure will not help the employee to pay the every month expenses.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good stepping stone for furthering your career. It's a stamp on your resume and a right of passage many people in the tech world have to go through.
    Good learning experience.
    The people.

    Cons

    First of all, they don't understand how to keep good talent. It's literally impossible to get a promotion or a pay raise. They don't even do cost of living raises. If you want to work there, keep in mind it's just a stepping stone...if you like working there and want a promotion or raise, you will have to leave for awhile to get the money you want and then go back. That's how most people get promotions there. It's the culture.

    Actually working there is nearly impossible because of the outdated technology and processes. Employees spend most of their time trying to navigate and learn the complicated systems. If they would use some of the new software they've acquired they might be better off. Proof that their systems are outdated: I've been gone for more than 3 months and I still can't figured out how to get my final expense report paid for! I'm about ready to just pay it myself. It's so frustrating.

    However, even if the technology was used properly, management would prevent any sort of easy experience for employees. There are so many layers beyond layers of managers, it's hard to keep it straight. They promote people into management, not based off of their leadership skills but based off of their numbers. It doesn't matter if someone has leadership skills AT ALL to be a manager there. They practice an all carrot and no stick sort of leadership at Oracle.

    I would say those are the top 3 cons but I could keep going...

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to start
