    Pros

    Established and solid company, they are investing heavily to keep the leadership.
    A great place to learn with opportunities to make progress.
    If you don't find opportunities to grow internally and you have three years work experience in your CV, you can find a job wherever you want in another company with such a strong brand and reputation they have in the market.

    Cons

    The Sales jobs are demanding, depending on the product to sell, it can be more or less challenging to make quota.
    In Sales there are many changes every year to adapt to the market condition.

    Pros

    Great thought-leadership, profitable company with a fantastic range of products
    Fantastic colleagues and a great work-life balance
    New state-of-the art building
    Great if you want to be the best version of you

    Cons

    IT on-boarding for new colleagues is 100% digital & self-service, which, while improving, is very time-consuming.

    Pros

    If you want to do nothing - you can and they won t fire you

    Cons

    Bad management
    Bad managers
    No team spirit
    Can t get promoted easily withou sucking a lot and even that, it will take you 3 to 5 years for a promotion ( even just some more money)
    Micro management
    No sales conference
    No free food

    Oracle image is extremely bad on the market. People just simply DON T. Like to talk with the company as they think we re robbing them.

    Advice to Management

    Just raise all your employees and not only your executives.
    Recognize technology VMWARE so you can stop your crap licencing rules
    Invest in tech pre sales to support your objective of growingg cloud sales

    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Oracle takes Customer Service seriously and integral to their business. As such, I got to work with some very skilled people throughout my time there.

    Cons

    After years of Oracle promoting a policy of distributed teams and working remotely, this changed 4-5 years ago. Ultimately, this severely limited career prospects within the Support Organisation unless an employee was willing to relocate to one of 2-3 centres within the US.

    Great sales training, learn how to deal with solution selling, young people and high turnover, good place to start your career if you want to do sales

    Cons

    Mid management not always at a good level of expertise (internal promotions), depending on the teams and your country sales target and calla target could be stressing

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Able to buy holidays up to 10 days
    - Health insurance
    - Friendly Co-workers

    Cons

    - Uses career advancement as a selling point but it is non existent, at least in this office
    - No salary increases, you stay on the same salary until you get a promotion or have a new job offer outside the company (see first point)
     - New staff start on higher salary than current staff who will be training the new employee's from day 1.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that management should work on providing a fair salary expectations and career advancement for staff as there is little or none provided currently. No employee should be expected to have a job offer from outside the company in order to get a pay increase.
