    Former Employee - Associate Event Producer  in  San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Associate Event Producer in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Oracle as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    No real cons here, I didn't work here long enough to experience any negatives.

    Hard to move from your business unit unless you know somebody that can bring you over.
