    Great inside sales job. But your success is solely based on Territory, Timing, and Talent...in that order.

    Pros

    Great benefits, training, and name recognition.You can learn a lot very quickly and will be paid about as high as any inside sales rep you know. Lots of different products to sell, plenty of division and products to move into. Having Oracle on the resume will serve you well when you inevitably leave because you sick of it, or because they'll pay you less for a promotion than if you left to return to Oracle again. Happens all the time!

    Cons

    Territories are incredibly unfair. Tough sit sit next to a moron and out work them, only to watch them collect easy and enormous commissions. SR MGMT has no idea what's going on, and changes their direction daily. Very immature sales org in some product lines. Oracle has terrible internal systems, information sharing, and communication is embarrassing. They could be so much better if they hired better people, better management, and modernized their approach to sales in the 21st century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize talent, achievement, skills, and success based on how a deal was actually won. Not by a number on a spreadsheet in a cake territory. hire better managers. support sales with better marketing...any marketing! Come down from your ivory towers and see how tough reps jobs are.

    Pros

    Big enough company that it will be around for a while.

    Cons

    Oracle is blind to the massive Cloud and SaaS changes going in the market place. They're just too slow to adapt and they can't just buy their way out of this one with acquisitions.
    Company is incapable of innovation for anything other than their DB.
    Bland, boring, culture.
    Creative folks are not part of the Oracle DNA.
