    I have been working at Oracle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work from Home facility. Good salary given while joining, good bonus(variable) pay. Job safety. Branding. Respect in industry and from Clients. Company has deep pockets and gives good facilities to its employees.
    Good resources(study material) for improving our technical and domain knowledge.
    Good number of earned, casual and sick leaves. Company cares well for its employees. Work culture is good as its based on Mutual trust and respect.
    Get good knowledge on their products.
    The offices contain Gymnasium which is very good.

    Cons

    Promotions can take little bit more time than as compared to other companies.
    Some times company may not give annual salary increments.
    Onsite opportunities are very rare and if they exist it would be mostly short term and even in that you cannot make money(from per diem) as company would keep you in the best of hotels and provide you with the best of transportation and best of food but for all this company would pay directly. Its not like you can save anything. So you can work and enjoy your onsite stay but saving some money is not possible unlike other IT-Service based companies which pay you some money in cash for food and transport etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In those geographies where inflation is high(developing countries) if yearly salary increments are done without any gaps it would be great and highly appreciated.
    Encourage employees to do Yoga.
    Keep more and more healthy foods in canteens. (Oats etc.)

    Pros

    1- Good work life balance.
    2- Some teams got good project and some not.
    3- No hidden cut in salary. Most of it are in hand.
    4- Flexibility in work.
    5- less politics.

    Cons

    1- Management strategy is not good. They say, they don't know about any decision taken by the company.
    2- Hiring policy is very bad, No transparency at all. A mechanical guy who doesn't know about java is doing development and a computer science topper is in support.
    3- Retention policy is not good.
    4- salary is a concern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to keep good people ,And please correct your hiring policy. its disastrous.
