I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great leadership and great people. No major layoffs. (Probably one of the very few high tech companies that was extremely well managed, financially.) Great work life balance.Lots of opportunities for future growth and upward mobility if you work hard.

Cons

Raises hard to come by and are delayed. Not much cons here.

Advice to Management

compensate people better

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

    Pros

    Mostly easy going work environment. Unlimited sick days. Opportunity for telecommuting. Cheap bus pass. There are many great things about working for Oracle.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best and there is no guarantee of a salary bump every year. Even if your business group did very well, if other areas of the company did poorly it can affect your compensation.

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

    Pros

    Large customer base. Lots of products to sell and tons of training. Great for your resume. Opens doors and lots of opportunity to move around and up the ladder if you perform well.

    Cons

    Your success will be based on three buckets. Territory, Timing, and Talent.. In that order! Most selling in Oracle Direct is tactical and transnational. Not to many value selling opportunities. Lots of turnover at all levels. If you blow it out one year comp plan will adjust.. You will not beat the house twice...

    Advice to Management

    I've had the pleasure of working with 4 managers during my time here. Myself and my team have performed considerably better(banner years) with the managers that treated the team as adults and with respect. Let you run your own business.

      Harping over call stats may be good for Pre-sales/Business Development reps but we are sales professionals. If you want a good finger on the business look at pipeline and number of customer meetings setup. Most of the sales process and interaction is happening over email anyway so your call stats are doing nothing more than creating bad analytic's for upper management.
