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

    Pros

    Good benefits, great technology, a lot of money in the bank.

    Cons

    Inconsistent with focal reviews and bonuses. Very few people below Manager level seem to be awarded any stock options. Make sure you get hired at a salary you can live with for at least three years.

    Advice to Management

    Opportunities in fair and consistent focal reviews. Raises should be based on the previous year targets and company goals, not Q1 of the fiscal new year. Employees are deserving of stock options, even those who are IC and below manager level.

    Pros

    great people, good company culture depending on management. For people in their mid 20's it is great money for those who are in a solid territory.

    Cons

    upper management could be a little more experienced. At times the company is too big for its own good.

    Advice to Management

    hire from outside of the company instead of trying to make zuckerburgs out of college students.
