    Pros

    Large customer base. Lots of products to sell and tons of training. Great for your resume. Opens doors and lots of opportunity to move around and up the ladder if you perform well.

    Cons

    Your success will be based on three buckets. Territory, Timing, and Talent.. In that order! Most selling in Oracle Direct is tactical and transnational. Not to many value selling opportunities. Lots of turnover at all levels. If you blow it out one year comp plan will adjust.. You will not beat the house twice...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've had the pleasure of working with 4 managers during my time here. Myself and my team have performed considerably better(banner years) with the managers that treated the team as adults and with respect. Let you run your own business.

      Harping over call stats may be good for Pre-sales/Business Development reps but we are sales professionals. If you want a good finger on the business look at pipeline and number of customer meetings setup. Most of the sales process and interaction is happening over email anyway so your call stats are doing nothing more than creating bad analytic's for upper management.

    Pros

    The product line is great. Though I wouldn't say there is lot of in-house innovation, Oracle acquires the right product. The execution of the management is in the right direction to take the company to next level in the everything cloud era.

    Cons

    Very slow pace. Hard to find any urgency in bringing the product to market on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the process around product delivery and improve the product turn around from several months to with in a month. Adopt latest trend in product delivery.
