I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Oracle is a machine
Culture is aggressive, driven, results-oriented
I was personally treated very well throughout my time there
Lots of opportunity to succeed and advance; great rewards when you do

Cons

Can be political, bureaucratic like all big companies
Sales pressure can lead to questionable tactics and bullying - it's all about the numbers
Complexity of the organization with so many acquisitions makes it difficult to navigate and lead

Recommends
