    A great company to work for with great leadership and presence in the IT space.

    Director (Current Employee) Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    ProsGreat team atmosphere, good technical teams, good engineers, and great opportunities. I love the team I work for and couldn't ask for a better manager!

    ConsCan be siloed, but since this is a large company this expected.
    Salary hikes can be a problem

    My experience with Oracle was difficult, stressful and completely frustrating and it wasn't necessary.

    Regional Sales Director (Former Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsI think the technology is very strong and if the company culture wasn't so broken I would recommend it to clients

    ConsThe matrix organization is too complicated and very frustrating for the client. Each division of the company has a separate agenda and causes conflict internally which affects the client

    Advice to Senior Managementcompensation drives behaviour therefore, I suggest that comp be reviewed to ensure the right behaviours are happening. A compliance deal has cause a hardware deal to go south in a blink of an eye.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lacklustre, little people interaction or culture

    ProsFlexible hours, can work at home, challenging products. Most people are good to work with, but remote.

No increases or bonuses for the last few years. Company doesn't spend on anything. Had boss I met two times in 7 years.
