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

    Pros

    Heading in the right direction with cloud services with a focus on SaaS. Recent Sales Force consolidations should alleviate customer confusion with fewer reps calling on the same account.

    Cons

    Hiring practices are clearly focused on hiring a younger, less expensive work force. Lagging AWS, Azure, and Google for IaaS and PaaS.
