I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Server Tech division which includes database, enterprise manager are good to work in. People are smart and friendly. Good telecommuting culture and flexible work hour. But you have to work hard in order to advance. That's true everywhere

Cons

When you hit a plateau in learning, it is up to yourself to look around for opportunities. Keep looking. No one will do it for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't add more engineering processes to treat everyone like a dumb a. It just lowers productivity for everybody.

    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is a large product portfolio and you do not have to know the products to make good money. All that is required is that you need to get a good territory and you need to call on purchasing and IT. There are no caps in the ROE (Rules of Engagement), Oracle's term for compensation plan. However, see below.

    Cons

    Oracle will frequently choose not to pay you if you blow out your numbers. If you do not like it, you can sue them. Oracle will decide after the fact, whether they want to pay you. It does not matter if this is legal in your state. They are bold, they play the numbers, they know the downsides to doing this, they do it all the time, and they benefit handsomely. If you sue, your contract requires arbitration which generally favors the Oracle because the arbitrator is paid by the company and they want repeat business. (Oracle does not get to choose the arbitrator). Cases will take 2 or more years and legal fees are very expensive.

    They frequently delay payment as well, while they think it over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do unto others as you would have done to yourself.
