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

    Pros

    Because most SDR's are hired through the "Class Of" Program, you are surrounded by fun, young, and ambitious people. There are lots of little perks like 2 work from home days per month and access to a nice gym.

    Cons

    The way Oracle is structured is extremely inefficient. You are expected to make huge sales, however field and more tenured sales reps take priority, so if they are talking to an account, you are not allowed to touch it. You can feel like a number sometimes at a big company like Oracle, so it is hard to want to show up for work when you feel like you are not valued/needed.

    Advice to Management

    Either eliminate the SDR role or lower our metrics. If you want quality pipeline, high opportunity metrics is not the way to do it.

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

    Pros

    I get to work with some of the best and brightest minds in the development of machine learning and cloud computing. The diversity of my colleagues and their backgrounds is second to none.

    Cons

    Commute from San Francisco and/or San Jose can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Too much reliance on the technology consultants to be driving the conversation with customers, account manager and team need to be more knowledgeable and confident with customers.

    Hold the managers to a higher standard than the regular employee. Need to do a better job of keeping the real talents than the sycophants

    Pros

    Great place to work with excellent products, benefits and dynamic sales force... very results driven organization!

    Cons

    To much internal changes and movement every year end... never know what the next new year will bring...

    Advice to Management

    Let the RM decide on territory changes and which employees stay or move territories or pillars... reps should be able to build relationships in a territory and offer some stability to the customers and prospects.
