Pros

If a consultant wants or needs to 'come off the road' Oracle provides many opportunities to accomplish this. other consulting firms its the road or the highway

Cons

In many ways Oracle doesn't know how to deal with consultants. They were and are a great database company and probably should have stayed in that business. Once PeopleSoft was purchased they should have dropped the line of Oracle HR software and embraced PeopleSoft software.

Advice to Management

I am not sure Senior Management wants to hear anything from a consultant. They don't understand or want to understand our lot in life.

  1. Working for Oracle Financial Services as a Mantas Sales consultant is pretty good.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Oracle FS is the flexibility and oppurtunities that such a large company brings. Within such a large company there are a number of oppertunities within Oracle. Affter getting aquired by Oracle, there hands off management (at my level) has been a positive.

    Cons

    One of the downsides to working for Oracle FS is the internal policies and precedures (althought nessicary) sometimes being a pain to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more product managers to support sales and presales.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, good management practices. Your managers are always willing to listen. Decisions that are made at the lower management levels are usually very good.

    Cons

    With Large companies you can get lost in the masses. The communications up the management chain can be laborious (you really have to push to move things up the ladder).

    Advice to Management

    Focus some of that energy on workforce. The company is strongly focused on growth and as a consequence we have more than doubled the workforce. It is time to focus on these people and make sure we keep the best.
