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

Pros

Led by one of the smartest guys on the planet. Great people in every part of the business. Breadth and depth of application and technology means they are in nearly every account - and therefore have the ability to get C-Level access.

Cons

Too many sales people calling on same accounts. Last I counted, it exceeded 16. Confusion and frustration for customers and Oracle Sales Rep alike.
Business practices are rigid and slow (for reps and customers).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They have a well-oiled machine as-is so not sure there is more to share.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Oracle provides a great work environment with lots of flexibility, excellent compensation with mostly interesting work. Comparing Oracle to other companies that I have worked for, Oracle comes easily out on top.

    Cons

    Career advancement can be difficult to navigate as it is at most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A- rating. There are always opportunities to improve communication across business units in terms of strategy and vision.
