    Pros

    Great flexibility and work-life balance. Opportunity to work with some very senior and experienced engineers.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits way below market standards. Haven't seen a bonus in over 3 years. Very slow to make changes in product and stay up to date with latest technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the red-tape to hire faster. Offer competitive salaries to hire good talent and keep existing talent.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    oracle is the largest start up you will ever work for. lots of opportunities to innovate and try out your ideas. great flexibility for internal transfers. benefits are terrific, with most people allowed to work from home.

    Cons

    salaries in marketing are among the lowest in the industry and it is very hard to get raises. good people tend to leave. bonuses infrequent and small. executive management is focused entirely on corporate earnings, and budgets are small and diminishing. management is not interested in investing to position oracle competitively in the market

    Advice to Management

    acknowledge the revenue impact of the transition to Cloud, and invest in promoting and positioning the company as a leader in this growing marketplace. compensate employees fairly, consistent with industry averages.

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

    Pros

    Good products to sell, "industry leading" in many pillars. I work in HCM sales (HR applications) and the momentum is definitely picking up. My first year I almost doubled my OTE, the second year I am half way through the fiscal year and have already doubled my OTE. If you know what to do, and don't need ANY hand holding you're golden at Oracle. If you like hand holding, and for everything to not be self service Oracle is not for you. Otherwise go make your quota and you get to do whatever you want. *Oracle has insanely good health benefits

    Cons

    No hand holding, EVER. Onboarding? -Forget it It's trial by fire. If you know how ot run your own business and be your own manager then you are set to be successful at Oracle. Cold Calls- lots of them, unless you know how to run your business without doing any cold calls- highly unlikely. If you make cold calls and actually work you'll do great. Just got to make sure you leverage your time well and involve your team field/management early and often for the larger deals until you have enough at-bats to figure it out on your own. Everyone who doesn't do well at Oracle bad-mouths it at Oracle. Culture is overall bad. That said, I am not in sales for culture. I am in it for hte money. Oracle is a great place for that mind set.

    Advice to Management

    Less territory changes at the end of fiscal years. We lose a full month or so of time each fiscal year due to the inevitable changes.
