    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Results-oriented company. If you perform well, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Hyper internally competitive. Usually, your most intensive competition will be from another Oracle team rather than an Oracle competitor. If you like to be part of a broad team that works well together, this is not the company for you.
