    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment. Always room to grow for top performers. Amazing leadership team. Enormours variety in products and services, hence there are always new places to work if you want to move internally

    Cons

    Like any large corporation there are multiple layers to go to and go through in case you want to get something approved. However, using the internal tracking tools the process is pretty optimized and efficient.
