Pros

We're acquiring some of the best-in-breed software and are serious about tying them together to form best-in-class industry solutions. It's the Cisco model applied to software, and thanks to SOA, it's working. For people who have been acquired, the pace can seem slower, but if you can correctly leverage the huge sales force and pipeline, there is a huge customer base that you can sell to.

Cons

Larry's hatred of Microsoft means we have to avoid their stuff wherever possible. We don't use Exchange servers, and our email system is clumsy and painful. We seem to rewrite even basic applications for internal use - why are we using "Oracle Chat" when there are at least ten good alternatives already out there? Comp is on the low side, but they do give out options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest some money in marketing your products! It's galling to see SAP's ads touting software that's nowhere as good as ours when we're not saying anything in return.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire more product managers to support sales and presales.
