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

    Pros

    Oracle always enjoys a great place to work in at India. Though is a heavy weight in terms of number of employees, people I meet still think of Oracle as a great Company.

    Work and work culture is Excellent. Training programs available for employees are good. General HR practices are good. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Though this has been a great technology company, in the last few years hasn't been making big impact in terms of revenue and hence the salary not to the mark. People who stayed back longer are left out in a lower salary with a bigger gap in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix salary for current employees. Have a head of business for India operations of development centre.
