    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Great managers and a collaborative environment. On-boarding process is very robust.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is struggling with go-to-market strategy for CX in the mid-market. Brand recognition is weak and makes getting appointments very difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Marketing, marketing and more marketing. The Oracle CX Suite is a powerful family of CX SaaS applications, but but SFDC owns the space because of all the money and resources they put into marketing. They own the hype and consequently, they own the market.

    Pros

    Laser focused on bottom line. It helps the company remain strong and vital. They generally make sound business decisions. This is refreshing if you've been with an org that's bad at the business side

    Cons

    Laser focused on bottom line. People are a commodity. They are trying to get better at career development, but it's not inherent to their DNA
