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

    Pros

    Excellent and flexible benefits package, very flexible working practices with extensive use of technology such as remote working video conferring etc. Huge resources and plenty of support and help available. Plenty of opportunities to progress career internally.

    Cons

    Huge organisation can be difficult to navigate, and finding right people to talk to can be a challenge. Internal politics can be a chore. Little chance of a pay rise once you are onboard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees don't have to go outside to maintain their lifestyle and cost of living expectations.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance with flexibility to work from multiple locations and home.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity to progress within the function; not a very dynamic workplace. Poor bonus payout history. Trades on the name; no focus on employee morale / motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on fixing issues across the business, rather than highlighting and not addressing/only paying lip service; address morale and motivation issues; ensure that employees have real development opportunities to want to stay with the organisation; listen to employee feedback.
