    I have been working at Oakton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1) Work life balance is good and u will get ur salary on time.

    Cons

    1) Dirty politics and ego in management and as well as in team leads 2) some managers does not how to speak with colleagues. They think that people working here are just like slaves and they are selling their self respect with money 3) In terms of working hours, suppose let us consider 8 hours per day.There would be minimum 5 hours of meeting. I don't know what is use of meetings, if we don't know what's going on and why it is going on 4) cross domain change :- Higher management randomly changes the people domain. A strong advice to management that please don't change the domain, with out taking the concern of a person . Because some people in oakton working with passion, not for the money. 5) No development work at all. Oakton maintaining people just because of billing purpose. I strongly suggest for the new joining ones that go with oakton if want to retire ur career or want to do job for namesake 6) basically when I joined at oakton, it was product based company with 3.7 rating in glassdoor with full of products and projects. Now it became service based company with 2.3 rating in glassdoor with no projects and products. So every one can understand situation in oakton. 7) Finally caste feeling :- if ur caste belongs to ur manager caste or some one who is in higher management level, u will get ur bonus and hike. If not life sucks here. I strong recommend check ur caste before joining here. If ur in higher caste level go with oakton because u will get hikes, recognise letters and bonus even if u don't do any work at all.

    I have been working at Oakton full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Only australian timings, hence no late evening work, hence good work life balance

    Cons

    closed down project delivery which is a poor decision and they want to do only support work 18million write off toll work is a lot of trouble for the customer, finally system doesn't even have security properly below written nice reviews are by managers who want to show nice to the upper management, but listen to current employees before joining the company HR doesn't show any courage to tackle employee issues. top management is very bad and CEO got fired too

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Hyderābād

    I worked at Oakton full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance is good. Good salary.

    Cons

    Management is worst. Lots of dirty politics. No career growth. And never believe on their offer as they roll back the issued offer letter at any time. Hence think before resigning in current organization after getting Oakton offer letter.
