I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 8 years

ProsBest company that grooms you, accepts you and takes you forward. It looks after its employees and puts trust it them making them the best of the lot.

ConsNot a great company for someone who would want to exlpore the breadth of technologies as it being a product based company, you remain confined to particular line of products.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing the best as you do.
