Sales Salaries

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere 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.

ConsOracle 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 Senior ManagementDo unto others as you would have done to yourself.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
