    Pros

    can make great money, top IT firm in the world, job security, etc.

    Cons

    1. it is pretty much guaranteed that every year your territory, product set, and thresholds will change.
    2. overall the company the culture of the company is changing from "work hard, play hard" to constant micromanagement and recording of activities.
    3. there are so many oracle reps calling into the same small set of accounts you confuse the customer and have to fight with your other LOB peers to do a deal

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in how to run your own business. Good products.

    Cons

    So many people in so many departments and not many going in the same direction. If you want something, you have to build it yourself. Territory and market restructuring every year brings a lot of uncertainty to your job. Total start over on your turf every new fiscal year.

    Advice to Management

    Add consistency. Hire someone that can help deliver a consistent message that tells people what it means to use Oracle's products and not what they do.

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, a wealth of knowledge is available, and opportunities are available to take your career in the direction you want.

    Cons

    The con is that it can be a self service type of role when it comes to improving your skill set and moving forward in your career. In such a large company if you want to stand out it's up to you to take advantage of the opportunities.
