    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

    Pros

    The teams are well versed in marketing needs for a global company. Very fast paced and exiting environment. Would recommend company to future prospects.

    Cons

    Many teams are flex working teams. This is very convinient for those that would prefer to work from home but some find it detrimental to productivity. The salary is also not amazing

    Advice to Management

    Give more feedback to your employees and stop outsourcing all our jobs overseas. There also needs to be more opportunities for internal training.

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

    Pros

    Oracle is a top software seller in just about every field. It is nice to not have to explain to people every time who Oracle is. Oracle has amazing benefits and everyone you work with is eager to climb up and graduated from a great school. Great culture and amazing to have on your resume.

    Cons

    You are in the dark a lot on information that could be relevant to promotions.
    Cold calling gets old and if you get a bad territory you are in for a rough time.

    Advice to Management

    Understand not all territories are the same and as a BDC, the territory dictates who succeeds and who doesn't. Very unfair.

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

    Pros

    Great people; lots of training opportunities; lots of cloud opportunities

    Cons

    Oracle's going to the cloud whether you want to or not; Oracle customer who doesn't want cloud - good luck getting someone to listen to you

    Advice to Management

    90% or revenue comes from on-prem - stop ignoring them

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, sometime we get free food and unlimited sick days

    Cons

    Promotions and raises are pretty rare, Oracle acquires a lot of company, it doesn't seem like a united organization.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into giving raises to prevent people from leaving.

    Pros

    The pay is great and so are the benefits. Co-workers are friendly and helpful. Love the flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Everything is self serve so it takes you about a week or so to just get fully set-up. The help desk is a hit or miss as sometimes you get a very helpful tech and other times you'll get one that just sends you a video or a deck to read instead of walking you through it.
