    I worked at Oracle as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, less work, befits like rental car and housing. High rate of conversion,

    Cons

    Less opportunity for growth. A good company to retire in but not for young people. Age of the general crowd is a bit on the other side.

    Take up more challenging work to help employees work harder and better. Fridays are generally off days for employees.
