    Pros

    Overall the company will give you the oppurtunity to move around as long as your have a good track record. There's growth and management are great.

    Starting out the pace is fast and it continues to be. But once you learn to adjust and adopt, the pace becomes 2nd nature to your career.

    The people are fantastic, some of the smartest I've ever worked with. The culture is customer-first, and you can tell how passionate everyone is about making the customer successful

    Cons

    Growth always comes with growing pains, sometimes I feel we could staff faster (although it's understandable hard to do)

    Advice to Management

    As a part of Oracle, continue the culture of respect, customer-first, and hard work!

    Pros

    Great employee atmosphere, collaborative work environment, and plenty of room for growth. Company has strong value of work/life balance, including great outings and company sponsored activities.

    Cons

    Pay could be more competitive for comparable industry positions. Upcoming acquisition by Oracle is going to restrict some of the perks that are currently in place.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, culture, opportunities for promotion and growth. New learning opportunities are always around the corner. You'll definitely stay busy. Opportunities to work from home in many positions.

    Cons

    Project management and workflow is sometimes inconsistent. Slower than average to adopt new technologies and ideas. Culture subject to change and potential degradation as company grows larger.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline your communication process. Keep things relevant and straight forward.
