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

    Pros

    Work with average people , so you can become hero if you have some normal (not extra ordinary) talent.
    Work life balance is good. But i think thats the individual perception. If you can manage your work load, you can have good work/life balance in any company.

    Cons

    No raise
    No Bonus
    No stocks
    Salary is below market average.. (really below.. )
    Managers are there just to fill the positions, but not adding any value to the product.
    They will promote you , but won't give you raise of a dime. And Managers feel proud to say that "In oracle , promotion is not tied to the raise"

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart people. But wait, they are not smart, if they join for less than market salary job.
    Dont say that Promotion doesnt need to be tied up with Raise.. That is ridiculously stupid.

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to stick around, you cant tell your employees, "We don't support movement to other departments."
