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.

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

    Pros

    There is an onsite gym that employess may use whenever. It is great for taking breaks from an uneventful day. The hours are really flexible depending on the group.

    Cons

    There is not much group dynamic to the Enterprise Manager team. Release Management makes a lot of demands that nobody can actually back up in time. This results in an extended showstopper mode where everything gets scrutinized for months. I find that I spend the majority of my time working on stabilization rather than looking for inventive new solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Make more opportunities for employees. There is a very restrictive hierarchical structure that prevents many people from rising up and growing their careers.
