    Pros

    Oracle provides competitive pay and benefits. Depending on the organization you are in, there may be opportunities for growth and promotion into management.

    Cons

    Support for engineers to do their jobs well is minimal. Senior management generally cares more about costs rather than providing adequate tools to their developers. Also, Oracle requires that their developers use a proprietary source control system, which lacks many features that would be standard in open source options.
