    Pros

    There's an incredible amount of resources and talent available to help one be successful here. The culture is surprisingly team oriented, with everyone being extremely willing to help one another - even sales people. The value of the brand makes customers want to know more.

    Cons

    Self-service is their motto when it comes to getting started, Some of this is great, but when help is needed, it's not so easy to find. Lots of processes. Hard to navigate processes.

    Advice to Management

    Assign a mentor when someone starts to help walk them through what success looks like in your first 90 days.

    We love the idea of assigning a mentor. We have shared this with our Onboarding team for future implementation. We agree that the self-service environment, can be challenging to navigate so we are ... More

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Every group/division can be different in how they treat their employees, but I'd say overall there is very good atmosphere of trust and fairness. There is a strong focus on education, and they reimburse for outside classes taken (Up to 5k/year I think). Benefits are good, and I'd say quite competitive in the market. Good 401K matching (they'll contribute a max of 3% of your 6% or greater). Free drinks in the breakroom. Flexibility to work from home at times. (If you live 50+ miles away from an office you can work full-time from home...policy).

    Cons

    They don't try to make the workplace anything special (maybe a pool table and arcade game are cliche or gimmicky?). In the 10 years I've worked there, they've given 2 measly %1 cost of living raises (this is the same with most everyone I've spoken to, some don't get any raises). You will not get a substantial raise ever, unless you leave then get rehired on (they will not match offers, better to leave). New employees that you train will make 10 - 20K more than you several years after you hire on (not just me, they do this to all tenured employees). They will give these untrained, less experienced people higher titles (again this is done to everyone not just me). You learn pretty quickly that you're dispensable. The company has billions in cash and they don't re-invest in their employees, just in acquiring new companies and hiring new people that know nothing that you get to train.

    Advice to Management

    Relax on the multi-million dollar VP salaries and bonuses for a few years so that you can reinvest in your employees. It's obscene how a company will not try to retain it's employees who play the most pivotal part in bringing in the money that you horde from them.

    Really really bad raises.

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

    Pros

    Oracle is a market leader in many of the products that I sell
    Consistently releasing new SaaS products to compete with niche vendors
    If there is a gap in the marketplace count on Oracle developing or acquiring a solution to compete

    Cons

    Administrative tasks take away from time selling on the floor
    A bit of a discrepancy when it comes to territory mapping (great patches & BAD patches)

    Advice to Management

    With the engineers at Oracle you can always count on being an innovative leader. I understand some reps need micromanaging due to their inabilities to plan their days but instead work on trimming the fat and letting the best reps shine
