I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 10 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Compensation here is among the best in the industry. Half comp in base and half in commission.

    Cons

    Internal systems are a quagmire! Way too much time spent on internal meetings, training sessions, etc. Ridiculous call stat quotas of 100-150 calls per week are mandated and management will hound you to make them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow sales people more time to actually sell. Too many distractions make it very difficult to actually focus on making sales calls and sales related activities.
