    Pros

    Excellent place to take paychecks!

    Cons

    Career growth completely depends on the team, group and projects. There are no company wide policies to make this a functional place under one roof

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Larry Ellison still has a high touch in the company. Without him, don't know what will happen. Company is good with catching up even if behind so something wrt to execution is still right. There are good technical folks. Product mgmt was for most part missing from sight.

    Cons

    Pretty big, a lot of visibility wont be there with other group and what they are doing. Among the larger companies, not perceived as high as google, facebook, amazon etc.

    "Sales"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Sales in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Sales in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Great place to sell. Massive R&D spend keeps product lines competitive. If you perform and your behavior increases shareholder value, there is little micro management. Larry Ellison knows where the puck will be and brings products to market at the right time.

    Cons

    Internal processes can be overwhelming and can distract the sales force causing us to spend less time selling and more time in front of the computer. 25% of time is not spent in front of customers due to internal processes (pricing approvals etc..).

    Advice to Management

    Hire a team of sales operations folks to handle the process and let sales sell.


  7. "I liked the Software Program they used for time Mgt. as well as booking airline tickets, Hotels & renting cars."

    Pros

    The time passed very fast because you're working fast & efficiently. There's never a dull moment. You must get an early start before the boss man gets in to see if there are any "fires" to put out or make him/her aware of them.

    Cons

    Don't expect a pat on the back for all your efforts. Just let this part roll off your back. You work hard & you're under appreciated. It's like being a great Mom... you're expected to break your back for your boss.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember all we do for you. Give us better raises when the time comes.
