    Great company to work for

    ProsAmazing range of products, access to technology, training and people. Easy to ramp up personal technical skills. Great people.

    Awesome place to work

    Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsSolid brand behind you which in sales is important. The sales training is second to none. Oracle does it right when it comes to training their sales team to be successful. Perks and benefits are great which is what you should expect with a company of this size. Sr. Management team is approachable and open to honest and constructive dialogue.

    ConsVery process driven. And by process... I mean process.... there are, at times meetings to discuss what we are going to cover in later meetings.... you'll become the managing director for all directors and managers in the department of redundancy department. However, if you learn how to maneuver the processes.... cake walk...

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline some of the processes and make the sales cycle easier to close deals. Executive Summaries getting declined due to "wrong font" is a smidge overkill.
