    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    5. Work could be sometimes lax
    6. Health benefits are above average
    7. Culture is professional

    1. Schedule is not your normal 9-5, could mess up your body clock
    2. Salary increases are low, salary is not par with what's offered in the industry
    3. Certification is not free for all employees

    Advice to Management

    Your employees bring a lot of money to the table, give them ample increase / bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Great teams allowing for much independence and collaboration. Good company ethics overall with an engaged corporate team.

    Cons

    Pay is poor in comparison with the rest of the industry. There are caps on how much pay increase you are eligible for when being promoted or transferred which mean you may end up earning much less than your peers.

    Advice to Management

    Do not cap salaries for employees transferring or being promoted. Also allow full access to Oracle University or Oracle Training On Demand courseware for employees free of charge - this would be a major motive to stay.
