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

    Pros

    One of the largest and best IT companies in the world. Great place to work. Although hierarchical, everybody is very social towards everyone and contributes added value to others, your team and the company. you feel much appreciated, and the growth opportunities are available when you are ready to grow.

    Cons

    none so far. It is a job with many activities no day is the same.

    Advice to Management

    My manager is one of the best. We are all adults and need to take care of our own business, however he is always there for tips and feedback if required.

    Pros

    Wast resources for development, good products. International environment, great colleagues. Excellent learning opportunitiy. Ability to travel. Looks great on the CV.

    Cons

    Sales cycle is 18 months but they switch accounts every 12. Nobody reaches their target by their own hand, but by a glitch in the system. Extreme internal workload and complex processes for the simplest of things.

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

    Pros

    Great people, huge organization so ability to travel is there, have aquired some amazing technology

    Cons

    as it's global it can make things difficult to get, such as access to people in India / USA sometimes. Going through massive transformation currently, which makes things difficult as the organisation is is a state of flux, makes consistency difficult. Territories / complans / products all need to be reviewed.

    Advice to Management

    pick a plan, dont make it difficult to pay your employees, when luck can be the biggest factor in achieving success there appears to be a flaw in the plan.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Lots of resources available for development and the product set is continuously growing. Has a clear direction towards cloud sales.

    Cons

    Very fast and high growth rate in the sales teams has resulted in high attrition rates. Salary increases are aleatory and minimal.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the tenure higher

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Oracle is a huge and diverse company, and works at quite a pace for a multinational employing more than 130,000 people. The job variety is excellent, and the "can-do" attitude that pervades the company allows you to actually achieve what you set out to do.

    Cons

    Quite elitist in terms of the decision-making (and remuneration); sometimes job titles, status and levels are a matter of disproportionate focus. A lot of senior people have been in situ for years - in some case more than a decade - and are under no pressure to rotate onwards, which means progression can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the can-do, collaborative culture; think very hard about how (and whether you actually want) to keep the best people, as they're the ones who will leave if they finds their progression blocked

    Pros

    Great IT company with top solutions across the board massively investing into Cloud, great brand . You can learn a lot as a sales rep or as a pre-sales. Smart people can learn and progress in Oracle, people who are not that smart keep complaining about the company etc. often with weak reasons

    Cons

    Too many account managers covering the same set of accounts, relationships between account managers can be conflictual quite often. They should invest in corporate culture and give more perks. Poor internal collaboration between sales reps, "shark oriented". Quality of the food is very poor and is not cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more into the brand. Less account managers covering the same accounts and invest more into perks and corporate culture

    Pros

    A fast moving technical environment eastpoint in Dublin is a great place to work and a great stepping stone into saas sales

    Cons

    No training too much admin middle management want constant presentations around irrelevant issues offer more in depth training rather than bleating on about how great Larry Ellison is

    Advice to Management

    Just let the sales people sell
