Pros

Server Tech division which includes database, enterprise manager are good to work in. People are smart and friendly. Good telecommuting culture and flexible work hour. But you have to work hard in order to advance. That's true everywhere

Cons

When you hit a plateau in learning, it is up to yourself to look around for opportunities. Keep looking. No one will do it for you.

Advice to Management

Don't add more engineering processes to treat everyone like a dumb a**. It just lowers productivity for everybody.

    Pros

    Oracle is a solid, stable company with excellent benefits and salary. The company provides a great onsite gym, free soda and coffee and spacious work environment. The hours are reasonable and the company is flexible with work arrangements (flexible hours, working from home, etc.)

    Cons

    Most people in my group went for years without a salary increase. This may be getting better now, however. ADF framework is mandatory for most software development projects whether it's the right technology or not. This limits exposure to other technologies that are popular in the industry.

    Pros

    salary is outstanding if you have the right product and accounts
    independence - bringing in business is goal #1
    looked at as the premier sales org in tech sales, recruiters are always knocking on your door

    Cons

    big company politics
    internal competition
    not a place for the faint hearted, it is a culture that either works for you or doesn't
    each year I could be selling something different, e.g i spend months building credibility/relationships and the top management decide i no longer have responsibility to sell (or get credit for it).

    Advice to Management

    increase communication to the sales org. recorded messages blasted to the org is not really productive. townhalls with sales management perhaps.
