    Pros

    I was only at Oracle for 4 years and it was a positive experience. You work hard but you are compensated fairly. I had the opportunity to work with good managers and they were supported in all the decisions that I made. I would highly recommend this company if you can hired.

    Cons

    Long hours and lots of work but you have the freedom to work from home. This is a big plus for anyone that has a family but wants to work for a good company,

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing... it works and people are satisfied.

  7. Great Place to work - but not very good work-life balance

    Pros

    Very professional environment with room for growth, speaking for the Finance division. Other groups may vary somewhat. Challenging and ever-changing roles primarily due to the M&A activity.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance. People tend to work long hours and are expected to be on call even when on vacation.

    Can be challenging in terms of work amount, meeting deadlines, and dealign with old school mentality as compared to the likes of Facebook, Google, etc.

    Embrace change, embrace the culture of youth, and start making changes to cater to the future of this company.
