Pros

Working at Oracle offers a wealth of benefits... Here are a few to consider: First, you will benefit by having a top-tier software company, like Oracle, on your resume. Second, successful sales reps are compensated handsomely for their success. Third, the level of intelligence and experience of many of your coworkers and extended teams will be extremely high. And last, you will have good access to the executive level at many companies.

Cons

Oracle is a very complex organization. I do not necessarily see these as "downsides" rather realities... In a nutshell the challenges will come from the following: Acquiring 43 companies in three years does not come without complexities. Couple the acquisitions with the fact that Oracle is a "self-service organization" and you should plan to spend the first six months of your time trying to understand who, how, what system, what group etc. The quicker you map these things out the better off you will be. Oracle is a results oriented organization so quarterly pressures are standard. If you are looking for potluck lunches try another company. Larry is a strong believer in multiple sales reps calling on the same customer. This can cause challenges with customers and sometimes creates tension internally.

Advice to Management

We should strongly consider streamlining some of our internal processes and internal systems. The acquisition strategy is working... continue to aggressively invest where it makes sense.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Oracle FS is the flexibility and oppurtunities that such a large company brings. Within such a large company there are a number of oppertunities within Oracle. Affter getting aquired by Oracle, there hands off management (at my level) has been a positive.

    Cons

    One of the downsides to working for Oracle FS is the internal policies and precedures (althought nessicary) sometimes being a pain to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more product managers to support sales and presales.
