I worked at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good Salary and Benefits. A fair amount of autonomy depending upon group. Lots of potential to learn if you are self directed.

Cons

Very difficult to get things done internally. Too man layers and too many Reps calling on the same accounts. People show up to meetings and they don't even know they all work for Oracle. Lots of time spent "protecting turf" and "proving worth" as opposed to selling solutions and insuring customer satisfaction.

Advice to Management

Change the go to market strategy and add "Major Account Managers".

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Ability to work remotely
    -Money is ok
    -Quarterly Bonus

    Cons

    -Bad Management/Leadership
    -Lack of clear roles and responsibilities
    -No raise, I have worked here for 3 years, and never received a raise. Depending on who you ask you get different answers, most say you need to have a change in Job title. Quarterly bonus is nice, but too inconsistent.
    -As a PM, this is probably the worst place to work. They dump everything on the PM without notice or warning. PMs are asked to do more, than other organization I have seen or heard of.
    -Practice Managers are poor, they do not understand the products or workflows they manage, and in a lot of cases they try to micro-manage, which just adds problems to the projects.

    Advice to Management

    -Clear roles and responsibilities
    -better benefits, your a multi billion dollar company, treat your employee's better
    -promote from within, so Managers have an idea on what their PMs are doing.

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If IBM had bought sun, it would have been dismantled. At least Oracle attempted to extend and develop existing product lines.

    Cons

    As a software company, Oracle has no clue on how to market and sell hardware. They decimated the existing sales for my product line by destroying our Sun sales channels and laying off most of the technical sales support.
