Pros

Its easy to get lost in the beaurocracy of such a big company. Learning all of their self service applications and support takes some time.

Cons

My personal manager is fantastic. There is dedication to helping me achieve my career goals. Also, the training and advancement opportunities are virtually limitless.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good flexibility in work location, decent benefits, large company makes for a semi-safe environment. Customers really have to you and if you get to understand your patch and product set, you usually can figure out how to position and sell them. Oracle has everything under the sun technology wise.

    Cons

    There are some good sales territories and jobs at Oracle, and some lousy ones. Better know your manager and area VP very well to ensure your deals can get approved!! Biggest challenge is the terrible customer management strategy. It's every sales rep for themselves, and customers know it. It is a "good old boy" network in management.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your customers like customers and not enemies. Yes, you have them "over a barrel." They know it, but stop treating them like that. Simplify the comp plan and give higher end incentives. And finally, create a model and culture of sales teams working together to solve problems and drive bigger revenue at your customers.


  2. Work with the best, learn and get smarter, accept career limitations
