    Pros

    Tremendous energy from marketing organization.

    Cons

    - Beware of the smoke and mirrors. Lots of hype around the "#dreamjob", but they don't tell you the pie has been cut so many times that a very small percentage of people actually achieve their goals.
    - Land of haves and have-nots. Despite AE's at the same level sharing the same quota, there is no effort to balance the account sets. It's extremely important that you ask to see your account set and license footprint before accepting the job.
    - Salesforce grew up from the SMB so the Enterprise group is run like SMB with a very short-term mindset and a monthly cadence.
    - Much of the support of the organization comes at the last minute after the selling is done and the deal is in the final stages.

    Advice to Management

    - Goals and accounts sets should be aligned on a territory basis.
    - Please look to companies other than Oracle for at least some of the new management team.
