Senior Consultant

Senior Consultant (Former Employee)
Bangalore

I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsIn my case, Oracle financial service software is a good place which I learn a lot. Management always give chance to employee who wants to improve themselves.

ConsSince company has a lot of people, it needs to treat its employee equally. Sometimes, you may feel unfair but if you stay long enough. It is a good place though. If you want some place to earn decent money in a short time, it is not kind of place.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore activities for social mix up between employees in the company. Although we have different backgrounds but humans simply has a lot of things in common. Those activities can always help to improve mutual understandings between company's staffs and create bonding to retain its people in the long run.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
