Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Technology ownership, name recognition, access to documents and technologies

Cons

no training, the managers suck no growth opportunity

Advice to Management

do review of the managers... you are a software company and so value your core technical team members input over mere managers

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, with well established processes. Has some very smart people. Benefits are decent, with great work life balance.

    Cons

    Hard to make an impact, being such a large company. Pay feels sub-par, especially if people stay a long time

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and training provided. Offers opportunity for career progression and unlimited salary potential. The Company adds to your resume a Fortune 500 Company which creates career opportunities both inside Oracle and in the industry. You are given autonomy in your territory which enables unlimited experience potential and ability to understand the process of running your own business.

    Cons

    Some Sales territories have unreasonable quotas that are several times the historical revenue production. Limited contacts are given to new employees and account information is not immediately provided. Can take several months to accumulate contacts and identify deals.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more strategic account mapping strategy for new reps. Look at the new representative's contacts and experience rather than assigning accounts at random. Assign quotas that are attainable based on realistic growth over historical revenue production for each territory.
