I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Great brand, financial resources to fund its thoughtful product and acquisition strategy, fluid work structures allow for excellence, broad portfolio of products and services, greatly improving SaaS options and hosting services. Rough and tumble culture in US Sales and Consulting that traditionally has rewarded excellence. World class visionary CEO.
Cons – New President of Sales, Consulting, Hosting that is detached from reality and with a muddled vision and poor communication skills, reorganization that feels like the org chart went in a Waring blender, will likely be a year of disruption and decline in US sales, exodus of top talent from US Sales and Consulting with the departure of the long-stranding EVP for North America Sales and Consulting. Sales force for license is confused by the new sales model with all its overlapping market segments. Consulting in US likely to be down due to self-induced disruptions in the sales force and loss of key leadership positions.
Advice to Senior Management – Need to develop a learning culture that focuses on continuous improvement. Highly reactionary US sales/delivery culture that on a yearly basis implements dramatic and discontinuous change that does not allow for refinement and optimization of what works. Fusion is the investment of a lifetime, protect the brand with world class pre-release product testing.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
