    Pros

    Variety of products. Leader in RDBMS. Does great mergers and acquisitions. Large relevant technology company.

    Cons

    Tend to view employees as commodity instead of their inherent value to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Share more amongst teams rather than being in silos that are internally competitive with each other.

    Pros

    Great place to work good benefits and flexible schedule. accounts can be mixed bag but if you get an account that can buy you will do well. Great training and competitive environment

    Cons

    Hard to get full compensation both you and your assigned outside sales representative have to meet your numbers to get full pay. A lot of internal changes are happening and career progression is more difficult inside of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making negative changes and suggesting that good changes will happen. So many changes all at once make it difficult to know which changes were successful and which were not. Don't get in the way of progress

    Pros

    Small group of fun people to work with

    No raise to base pay for over 10 years, you must like to be micromanaged and work for the devil.

    Pros

    Close to home, cafeteria on site

    Cons

    Salaries are low for this area and increases are infrequent and inconsistent. No bonus

    Advice to Management

    It is all in who you know and how friendly you are. Promotions have nothing to do with your work ethic.

    Pros

    Pay, work from home, self prioritize.

    Cons

    Tough life work balance. Politics.

    Advice to Management

    Control the overbearing managers. There are some great managers, but some of them take it to the extreme by trying to control their employees too much, making it impossible to make quick positive decisions.
