Pros

Interesting technology. Smart, motivated people if you are in the right group.

Cons

Complex software with a lot of legacy in the RDBMS.
Challenging to change and enhance without breaking unanticipated dependents.
Can be frustrating at times.

Advice to Management

We can't milk the RDBMS server forever, we need some forward thinking as to what will carry through the next couple of decades.

    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 Management

    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.

  2. Good culture inherited from Sun
