    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    I was very well paid.

    Cons

    This division of Oracle was originally a separate company, Hyperion Solutions. It was a terrible place to work. The unspoken motto was "Keep your head down and your nose to the grindstone." Micro-managing at every level. I was a manager and had to run every decision by my department head.

    Send all levels of management to management training.
