No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

Pros

salary is outstanding if you have the right product and accounts
independence - bringing in business is goal #1
looked at as the premier sales org in tech sales, recruiters are always knocking on your door

Cons

big company politics
internal competition
not a place for the faint hearted, it is a culture that either works for you or doesn't
each year I could be selling something different, e.g i spend months building credibility/relationships and the top management decide i no longer have responsibility to sell (or get credit for it).

Advice to Management

increase communication to the sales org. recorded messages blasted to the org is not really productive. townhalls with sales management perhaps.
