Pros

Get to know about the enterprise package software life cycle and how large organizations plan and build software cater to companies in different industries.

Cons

Work area can be limited to very specific areas and can become repetitive and limit to set of technologies that get centered towards oracle world and visibility into everything else happening on the software development areas is limited

    Pros

    There is a large product portfolio and you do not have to know the products to make good money. All that is required is that you need to get a good territory and you need to call on purchasing and IT. There are no caps in the ROE (Rules of Engagement), Oracle's term for compensation plan. However, see below.

    Cons

    Oracle will frequently choose not to pay you if you blow out your numbers. If you do not like it, you can sue them. Oracle will decide after the fact, whether they want to pay you. It does not matter if this is legal in your state. They are bold, they play the numbers, they know the downsides to doing this, they do it all the time, and they benefit handsomely. If you sue, your contract requires arbitration which generally favors the Oracle because the arbitrator is paid by the company and they want repeat business. (Oracle does not get to choose the arbitrator). Cases will take 2 or more years and legal fees are very expensive.

    They frequently delay payment as well, while they think it over.

    Advice to Management

    Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.
