    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Work environment and culture
    -Peer group support
    -Flexible timings and Work from home feasibility
    -Good support for learning activities.

    Cons

    - ill-structured management policies
    - Appraisal is conducted for namesake, actual hikes and bonus are left to management discretion only.
    - Freshers get paid more than experienced (sic).
    - Talented people leave the company regularly and company does not bother.
    - No recreational activities.
    - Less interaction between peer group and higher management.
    - Management does not bother or respond to employee concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Than recruiting new people in bulk, first try and understand why employees are flowing out regularly.
    - Consider employee satisfaction as primary, because company lives with their efforts and dedication.
    - Appreciation, Hikes and Bonus paid out should not be biased with groups under organization because each team is equally responsible for company's future.

    Pros

    Good work/Life balance: this is the only thing which would make someone think of joining Oracle as the work cultural is little lousy in a way good as you have a good work/life balance however, it all depends what type of manager you reporting to.

    Cons

    No proper guidelines, no yearly hikes, no bonus though that must have been promised at the beginning. Questionable policies. Manager is the king; he takes all the decision (from salary, hike, job, bonus, promotion etc)

    No HR involvement, Lot of internal politics, Manger is biased towards coworker as he has been given all the power.

    Not much of job/learning opportunities.

    Pros

    Work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give hikes/bonus to people who really works hard.
    Just promotion is not only the things people want , it should be value to someone career.
    Junior should not have less salary than senior - if they have , it should be justifiable.
