    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Full of smart, talented people who are passionate about what they do. Medical benefits are good, as is the 401k matching. In fact, 401k matching is the best I've heard of talking with friends at other companies in the industry. Company is stable.

    Cons

    Compensation is sub par. Bonuses, raises and promotions seem to be rare relative to company size, across the company not just in one department, no matter how hard you work and deliver. Company doesn't appear to promote loyalty. I've been with the company over 20 years so I know how it was. Appreciation of employees and an interest in retention doesn't seem to be a business priority anymore.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people. Flexible work environment. Good location and cafe and gym.

    Cons

    Pay, complacency from long timers who hang out and hide under the radar. Acquisition employees get placed in front of veteran Oracle employees and are continued to be paid well from their previous company's pay and the Oracle folks end up down the ladder even though they have the expertise and time in w/ Oracle.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth and your output will improve 100 fold
