I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good company to work for if you have a family. Flexible working hours. Good health insurance. (Sorry I know I have to make it a minimum 20 words but it is really hard to figure out any other pros...)

Cons

This company treats old employee very badly. I never receive a raise in the past four years. No bonus or anything related. There is no paid group lunch or dinner. No annual parties etc. Talented people leave frequently coz upper management do not value their contribute.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your loyal employees better than the new hires. Should give out annual raises at least to beat the inflation!

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.

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

    Pros

    Oracle has products that work, and clients respond favorably to sales and pre sale tech resources.

    Cons

    Oracle has a bizarre if not confounding internal sales process that is anything but automated or efficient. Adding to the confusion is the expectation that everyone understands how the process works. Heaven help you if you don't as there is little to no understanding afforded to a new person to the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Automate the internal deal management process, and redesign training to cater to new users who have yet to understand Oracle's complex order management process. Someone isn't incompetent if they can't speak Portugese after 2-3 days of training.
