    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.

    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Mumbai
    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Mumbai

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Extremely flexible work culture as most of the managers are a mix of Oracle corporation and Oracle India pvt. ltd. The work culture is extremely flexible. Work from home is popular. No mandatory 8/9/10 hours etc. No dress code (no formals etc), Free bus service and lots of reimbursements.

    Cons

    Salary hike is irregular and worst! Some of my colleagues got an avg of 15% in 2 years some unlucky ones got single digit hikes for 2 years. Appraisals are not done on an year to year basis. Company comes up with excuses but eventually makes sure that they appraise the employee at least every 2 year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to stream line appraisal process and also need to come up with employee retention schemes.

    Pros

    Good brand to work for with great exposure
    Products are dev driven
    Minimal bureaucracy or office politics
    Flexible work hours

    Cons

    Pay not upto market standards
    None of the 'cool' stuff you usually associate with a top tech company
    Technologies are limited to proprietary, so not much exposure to open source

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If something is not done about the pay structure, then it wont be long before it slips from the 'desirable companies to work for' list
