    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Flexible work schedule and my team is great. empowered to do good work. Plenty of demand in Oracle products.

    Cons

    Because it's a HUGE company, there are a lot of moving parts and a little disorganized at first. It takes some time to get used to all the different business units but after a while it becomes clear.
