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

Pros

Compensation here is among the best in the industry. Half comp in base and half in commission.

Cons

Internal systems are a quagmire! Way too much time spent on internal meetings, training sessions, etc. Ridiculous call stat quotas of 100-150 calls per week are mandated and management will hound you to make them.

Advice to Management

Allow sales people more time to actually sell. Too many distractions make it very difficult to actually focus on making sales calls and sales related activities.

    Pros

    Interesting technology. Smart, motivated people if you are in the right group.

    Cons

    Complex software with a lot of legacy in the RDBMS.
    Challenging to change and enhance without breaking unanticipated dependents.
    Can be frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    We can't milk the RDBMS server forever, we need some forward thinking as to what will carry through the next couple of decades.
