    The sky is the limit, just watch your back.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood Life-work balance. If you can't finish your work by 5PM, there is something wrong. This is the first sales culture where you aren't clocking 50+ or 60+ hours a week. Highly competitive (Driven by the CEO himself), but there is huge upward mobility for those on top of their game.

    ConsThere is little in-house innovation, it's mostly innovation by acquisition. The creative energy in Oracel's acquired start-ups typically cashes out with their IP, leaves Oracle to start another innovative company. The best advise I was give on dealing with the culture: "Build a rib-cage" around you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to have the sales teams pull together instead of pushing against each other.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
