Huge IT company with lots of -maybe too many- resources, some great people in the wider organization & a good experience

Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Málaga (Spain)

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

ProsLots of internal resources and great colleagues to collaborate with, great initial "Foundation" training in Dublin, lots of learning resources (technical, managerial, etc.). One of the highest compensation scheme in the industry. Great vision and overall execution. Nice offices in the area of Malaga, close to the sea and in driving distance from a skiing resort, Marbella, frequent high-quality sales training. Excellent quality of life.

ConsNo incentive for software sales to collaborate with their hardware counterparts in order to leverage the "Red stack" message and potential benefits for customers.
Too much of a bureaucracy with kind of "permission to sell" processes.
Self-service company (can be listed in Pros sometimes).

Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example: be more present in the office, get the software salespeople to actively work with their hardware counterparts by including some sort of hardware component to their target, get the field people to remember that nobody was born a field representative and may have started her/his carreer as an inside or in a direct sales company. Finally, don't let Idiots Become Managers, leave that to the competition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
