    Associate event producer, Oracle

    Associate Event Producer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsI had an awesome experience working for the sports marketing team at Oracle as an associate event producer during the America's Cup in San Francisco during the summer of 2013. I met some amazing customers and learned the importance of adopting a customer centric approach to marketing. My managers made every effort to ensure that I learned as much as possible about event marketing during my summer experience with Team USA.

    ConsNo real cons here, I didn't work here long enough to experience any negatives.
