    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can get to know a lot of ppl who are awesome at what they do and get their help if you want to really give your everything to get higher.
    Flexible timings and work. In my case, i was able to work when i liked and i never had a fixed 'in-time' or 'out-time'.
    Work is chill most of the time! except one or two days in a month when there is a priority bug! nothing wrong there!
    An ocean of learning opportunity with oracle University. It is free for you and you can almost go for all the trainings that are relevant to your work, or if your manager is okay with it!
    The company is doing well! if you are thinking about job security, then this is the place! they wont fire you that easily! one in a 10000 gets fired once in 2-3 years. Those are good odds.

    Cons

    no perks whatsoever! if you think the points mentioned in 'Pros' are good, then that's all you will get.
    If you don't ask, you are almost forgotten.
    The HR and the manager both point fingers at each other if we express displeasure with compensation.
    Young college hires will get the market corrected salary every year! But its almost a miracle if they correct your salary according to theirs!
    Even your VP if he comes and you talk to him about compensation, he will point his finger towards Larry Ellison or Safra Catz !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We work for the company too! If you follow the policy of hiring 300 college students every year, train them for 2-3 months on the technology which no one is taught in college, waste 3 months in making them understand how the development life cycle works here and think that you can afford to lose employees who have worked on a product for 2 years (at least) who have gone through the routine before, then that is the stupidest idea i have heard!

    Pros

    Visionary top management
    Flexibility
    Set Matrix of growth

    Cons

    Very biased paymaster. You get what you bargain during your interview.
    People who work are loaded with more work. People who don't are not accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please renew our processes and roll it out well to the team members who actually use them. In most cases, the managers are bad translators of the processes you define in the interest of the organization.
    Advice to the HR - Please filter the candidates keeping in mind Oracle culture. The new hires don't have an iota of regard for its culture.
