    Pros

    * Oracle BDG has got an unique community. Everyone is social, supports each other and we see each other after work as well. There is a young and vibrate culture, which is one of the many reasons employees stay within BDG for a year - 1.5 year
    * Good training courses & guidance at the beginning
    * Encouraged to travel to your focus country regularly which is not possible for a BDC at another company

    Cons

    * No progression possibilities. It is almost impossible to become a senior BDC because of HR, favourism among management, and Oracle prefers external 'industry experts' even though they have poor experience in sales.
    * weird salaries/commissions. Nobody gets the same salary plus more than 50% of the commision goes to tax and everything is capped. You only get paid out until 125% and sometimes that is not even in BDG's budget.
    * unprofessional staff
    * many internal systems are not working correctly. So we lose a lot of time with 'logging interactions' and we miss a lot of opportunities when it comes to inbound leads
    * Lowest paid salary for BDC. You can get much higher salaries for the same job at competitors

    Advice to Management

    Look at real business and identify and appreciate the hard workers. So far the wrong people have been appraised for their 'work' even though they have not created any real business to the company themselves. Also, accept feedback provided by employees. So far, employees who wanted to make a change and provided back got shut down nor promoted within BDG.
