    Pros

    It is fast paced environment and lot of opportunity to learn new cutting edge technologies. I have learned new technologies, while on the job.

    Cons

    Technological sales are not aggressive compared to Technological experts. Do not blame technological experts for slow sales and it is job of consulting sales people.Need to take advantage of cloud and make cost effective solutions for customers.

    Advice to Management

    Oracle needs to competitive with Big five consulting companies to get more consulting opportunities in addition to Product sales.

    Pros

    Obviously, Oracle has an amazing technology portfolio. That is a HUGE plus. If you like tech, especially databases like me, you will feel like a kid in a candy shop.
    The Sales Consulting organization is a positive place to work. Team mates collaborate and cooperate. There is amazing support from Product Management and even though the company is very large, it feels much smaller and you can talk with and suggest new features to product development.

    Cons

    My immediate management is wonderful and very supportive. Sadly, the upper management is not. Prior to the arrival of Mark Hurd, the compensation and benefits were tolerable. They don't pay top dollar simply because I guess they feel that they are who they are and therefore don't have to. Since Mark Hurd has arrived, things have steadily gone down hill. Perks have been taken away and I'm they have reduced my salary. After between 5-10 years with the company, I'm now making LESS than the day I got hired. There are no raises either. I love it there but can't afford to stay any longer than I have to.

    Advice to Management

    Re-instate the benefits you have taken away. Share corporate profits with the people who bring them into the company, us. Give everyone a well deserved raise and stop creating an environment that feels like you want us to quit so you can replace us with cheaper talent. It takes a year plus for an SC to really get to hitting their stride. You aren't running HP anymore and with no shortage of profits, there isn't a reason to keep nickel and dimeing us.

    Pros

    Not sure- good benefits, good people, good products, flexible work schedule, not a hell of a lot more to say with 20 words

    Cons

    Difficult to get anything done, management unable to manage, all employed are replaceable attitude, not desire to fix what is clearly broken, very little ability to make a difference and no focus on doing what is right for the customer-

    Advice to Management

    There is no management - and anyone who says they are is helpless

    Pros

    good environment with good benefits.

    Cons

    Bad salary, many processes to go through. Management doesn't care about employees. Employees resign by the dozens while management careless about it.

    Advice to Management

    come down from the ivory tower and listen to the individual contributors. Managers are the least guys to leave as they have super easy jobs.

    Pros

    While Oracle is new to the CX space and still has some challenges to overcome, they are committed to being the best in the space. You get to be around some great products and if you can do well at Oracle its one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    You are a little fish in an ENORMOUS pond. There are people at Oracle who feast, and they are those who are starving and unfortunately that doesn't always have to do with skill, it has to do with luck.

    Advice to Management

    Create more balanced patches.

    Pros

    Variety of challenges, great management, flexibility as most employees are at-home workers, solid company and solutions

    Cons

    More about the work-at-home than the company, sometimes remote working reduces collaboration which leads to longer solutions at times

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what will drive the bottom line, not internal reporting and account planning to justify way too many levels of internal management.
