Current Employee - Principal Sales Consultant in Burlington, MA

I have been working at Oracle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I have a fantastic boss, a great team and I am appreciated and well paid for what I do.

Cons

When sales are down, the number of initiatives, metrics and busywork items goes up...sometimes to the point of hindering real work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay your people well, all your people, keep your top talent and sales will be good. At the end of the day who makes a bigger impact on the success of the company - the employees or the shareholders? Keeping shareholders happy at the expense of the employees is a recipe for disaster.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work was always different and fairly new

    Cons

    Compensation did not increase for three years despite terrific performance reviews, starting compensation was far too low. Lots of cost cutting within our department such as limiting of bonuses, work from home, limiting of nonbillable travel, and a significant reduction in talented headcount without backfilling. Lack of career direction as our department scrambled to meet unrealistic numbers. You'd need a high starting salary to justify working with all the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees

    Pros

    Great Sales Organization for hunters to thrive
    Pay for performance in sales
    Large portfolio to sell
    Mature platform in business and infrastructure products
    Minimum internal meetings for field sales

    Cons

    Internal competition for same customer
    Lack of single point of access for customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing employees
    Restructure so accounts over a certain size have a single point of contact like key accounts group.
