    I have been working at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    people. management. Work/life balance. freedom. This is a great company to kick off your sales career. You will learn a lot here - mostly from trial and error.

    Cons

    the gym is extremely small. the canteen is not great. It takes a very very long time for things to happen.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what your doing. Its very hard for them at times and they're fighting hard to get the best for their teams.

    Improve the HR organization. They are supposed to cooperate with other teams not blocking them.

    Current Employee - Applications Sales Representative in Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    Great company to start your digital selling experience. Whether we like it or not the digital selling model is here to stay - particularly when you are managing overseas accounts - The sales training in Oracle is pretty comprehensive and is amongst the best I've seen.

    Cons

    The problems start when you land at your desk and you are handed your accounts - remember you will be handed a list of company names - not a geographic area - so you will be more Business Development rather than Account Manager (Or Cloud Specialist as Oracle call it). Its impossible to change the company list until the year end so you could start in June and by July know you won't be making any money until next year. That's very tough.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the account alignment once and for all. It's not rocket science and I've worked in larger organisations where it simply doesn't exist.

    Pros

    Good package, good facilities and good intentions

    Cons

    Its sales with no clear accounts. Asked to sell the most expensive product in Market to accounts that don't have budget! Data messed up, in summery, its not sales, rather its all: marketing, call centre and maybe sales

    Advice to Management

    Review your targets and sort out your data. NB: micromanagement has been proved well long ago that its inefficient

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

    Pros

    great trainings, career progression for those that are determined, good network after working for oracle, generally good benefits also here in the Dublin office

    Cons

    you can feel it's corporate. many processes, etc. need to be maintained and they don't always make sense to the end user. it's an empire that needs to start acting faster.

    Advice to Management

    involved selected employees before making major decisions just above the heads; make sure management is also up to speed and has a culture of looking after the employees and really empowering and helping them.

    I worked at Oracle as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good opportunities to develop skills, good pay for internship, hour are very reasonable, and an enjoyable place to work with good staff

    Cons

    Sometimes the work can feel a bit monotonous, and the soft deadlines and the recommended courses of action with regards some projects can leave you hanging at a loose end seemingly indefinitely. But that's more on me than anything.

    Advice to Management

    Documentation for many of the internal tools are painfully out of date, and this significantly slows down the initial training period.

    I worked at Oracle (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are somewhat good, eg. holidays. You get a certain amount of money to spend on eg. insurance, health check, bonus cards, or you can purchase more vacation days. You can do this once a year.

    Cons

    New products, new market and no marketing engine as such. Experienced sales reps are being demoted to business developers and marketers, spreading Oracle message one phone call at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management needs to show more direction in a positive manner when times are tough. New market, new product, no marketing, no business development reps, no partners, and the best thing the higher management comes up with is to move first line managers to sit right next to their employees.

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

    Pros

    great training, great team, great people, good pay, great place to start

    Cons

    poor marketing, a lot of cold calling, territories are not properly distributed so that some are great and some are bed. its clear to see in day 1 of the FY who is going to hit his number and who is going to finish the year on a near 0%. diversity is great, but promoting woman just because they are woman is not the way

    Advice to Management

    invest more in marketing, split website to different LOB, there is no way someone can find what he's looking for there. content marketing would help get more inbound leads. dont hire sales reps to do business development activities, they wont make money, cost you more and then leave
