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

    Pros

    Regular work hours were 9 to 5 and OT was usually scheduled. The gym was great. I had a great manager.

    Cons

    Oracle manages based on fear. People are constantly afraid of having their jobs moved to India, employees in India are afraid to do their jobs, sales reps are constantly at risk of being fired if they don't make quarterly goals.
    All the company cares about is money but they don't share any of it with employees. No bonuses or annual raises. They offer very little vacation time and then they closed the office for a week and forced us to take our vacation that week. Sick time is unlimited but you aren't really allowed to use it. You just work from home if you are sick.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I was happy with my comp when I started but raises are almost unheard of so if you want more money down the road you'll need to leave . Good health insurance options. Some groups allow you to work from home.

    Cons

    Oracle values stock price and technology not customers or employees. As a result you're not going to be working with people who are not excited to be at Oracle. Mark Hurd is all about cutting costs and reducing employee count so their isn't a lot of opportunity to move up the ladder. Because the company is so large employees are not part of any decisions that impact them. Managers pass on the messages from senior management and employees are told this is the way it is and their is nothing we can do about.

    Advice to Management

    You can value stock price, technology and your employees.
