    Pros

    Stability. Tons of tools in the bag and you can always get a meeting.

    So many products that all of them are average. Long cycles for product updates and poor visibility overall into client transactions.

    Advice to Management

    Get your sales org to collaborate and work together.

    Sales and Business Development Salary

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    There is a sign on bonus and chance of receiving 2 other bonuses. There is also a commission based bonus that you can receieve.

    Cons

    There are some Cons to the package. The obvious that you do not know how much of the bonus you will receive and how much it will be taxed depending on the state you are in.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Oracle is a great company, and this role is fantastic to understand from the bottom up how the sale org works over here. Opportunities to move up are great, and there is a great attitude in the office. it always helps when you have a great manager as with any other job.

    Cons

    With such a large company it can be hard to navigate through to find correct internal contacts, or understand your career progression. Plus with it's size it can at times move or progress very slowly as expected however.

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear and concise with how the bonus rollout is for incoming employees. it's all shades of gray when you arrive.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Recognized name, good benefits, nice office, corporate discounts, great location, the projects you are building will be used by millions of people.

    Cons

    Too heavy-weight processes (waterfall), too many levels of management (11), outdated development tools; hard to make a differenece; you will have to follow established rules even if you know how to do things better; compensation is lower than competitors'.

    Advice to Management

    Replace waterfall with agile, upgrade the tools and development practices, increase compensation, figure out how to make it cool to work at Oracle again: maybe host meetups, organize internal hackathons, let people contribute to ope-source projects, etc.

    Human capital is valuable.
