Pros

Great benefits and training provided. Offers opportunity for career progression and unlimited salary potential. The Company adds to your resume a Fortune 500 Company which creates career opportunities both inside Oracle and in the industry. You are given autonomy in your territory which enables unlimited experience potential and ability to understand the process of running your own business.

Cons

Some Sales territories have unreasonable quotas that are several times the historical revenue production. Limited contacts are given to new employees and account information is not immediately provided. Can take several months to accumulate contacts and identify deals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a more strategic account mapping strategy for new reps. Look at the new representative's contacts and experience rather than assigning accounts at random. Assign quotas that are attainable based on realistic growth over historical revenue production for each territory.

    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Training and advancement to almost anywhere you want to go. Non-sales positions offer the ability to implement current technology while being ahead of most other implementers and business technology users.

    Cons

    Sometimes supervision a little top-heavy and a little slow to respond on employee requests. Generally, though, supervision offers assistance without micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would hope to regain some of the entrepreneurial attitudes and support from years past.

    Pros

    Educational opportunities to learn about the job are available via Instructor Led Training and Web-based Training. Work force reductions occur on a some what regular basis.

    Cons

    Work force reductions occurring on a some what regular basis. Moral influenced by the RIF's. Future roadmap of technology not readily available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide future roadmaps of the technology plans. Focus more on satisfying the customer base.
