I have been working at Oracle full-time

Pros

Smart, driven people and great camaraderie. Good facilities at headquarters (gym, multiple cafeterias, etc). Name recognition. Comp appears lucrative for revenue generating groups.

Cons

Raises and bonuses for non-revenue generating groups seem to have become extinct.

Advice to Management

Stagnant comp, even after stellar performance reviews, is demotivating.

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

    Pros

    Oracle has a complete portfolio - engineered systems - h/w and s/w tuned to work together. If you are a sales pro, you have a complete story for your elevator pitch which can get you in the door to many fortune 100 - 200 companies

    Cons

    Very large company which you are a number and you do not have much leverage to when a RIF comes your way. Not even the strongest internal network and keep your number from coming up. Oracle culture is straight forward, as a sales manager or sales rep you really do not have the ability to be entrepreneur like... business decisions are made in layers

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your sales staff as they are the closest to your customer and consider to take their input seriously and move quicker in making decisions when customers request changes through your sales team.

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

    Pros

    Fast paced, sales driven and process orientated. You'll earn your bones here and will be able to handle any sales process thrown at you in the future. Some of the sharpest people work there, learn as much as you can. Network, Network, Network.

    Cons

    Process orientated to a fault, but obviously effective. Keep your head down, don't get caught up in any of the drama that is normal for such a large company.

    Advice to Management

    Do what you can to help alleviate the redundancy, help network your directs to give them better and faster access to answers.
