  1.  

    Oracle Sales - Fun, fast-paced place to work. Very much a work-hard play-hard environment.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the sales org is on your side and is an advocate for you. Management's goal is to get you promoted. The opportunities as far as money and promotion are quite remarkable. I have seen people move from inside sales to the field in their mid-twenties, where you can make 100s of thousands of dollars a year.

    Cons

    Since Oracle has so many products to sell, I run into a lot of customers or prospects that are sick of getting calls from Oracle. There's internal competition for deals and LoBs fighting each other for business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reorganize the sales organization so the large, strategic accounts truly have one account manager who can be a central point of contact for all things Oracle. This would eliminate the need for sales and biz dev from many LoBs to be prospecting into the same account and contacts.

    In our consulting group you will learn a ton, have direct access to support and development, and have the benefits of working with a large team.

    Cons

    - Extensive Travel
    - Inadequate preparation time for new projects
    - Frequent group turnover as people move to new practices.
