    I worked at Oracle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You'll meet great colleagues there, a really good bunch. Tied together by the same semi-awful experience working at Oracle Digital in Dublin. The new office is quite a stunner. Great facilities, light, enough space, clean, eco-friendly, so-so canteen. You'll learn outbound prospecting with little to none supporting tools. Oracle still has a good reputation for producing strong sales people in the world.... So your tenure here will look good on your CV. Just not within Ireland, everyone knows Oracle. If you want to progress, just stay with the company. Eventually you'll be promoted. Best work-life balance of any job out there.

    Cons

    The lies, the micro- and senior management, compensation/bonus, the coaching/training Oracle tell you quite a story of how they work, how you can work, about compensation and bonuses. Take it with a grain of salt and be very, very critical. When they offer you a relocation package make sure to very closely read the terms. If you stay less than two years, you might end up with a couple of grand in debt and given... the fluctuation of people running back out of Oracle, that's a real possibility for you. You will be micro-managed, if you're lucky you get the odd more lenient manager. Generally, (senior) management doesn't care about your opinion, better play game. Many managers have no management experience and shouldn't be handling people. Leads to big frustrations and high fluctuation within Oracle Digital. Motivation consequently is low, people share the bad vibes. Depending on your territory and market, you'll barely see a bonus, unless you start sandbagging, making deals etc. Just grow the pipeline. You'll have almost no helpful tool to do your job, which is mostly cold calling. No active marketing in Europe means no inbound leads. Coaching and training is a big one in Oracle. But they fail to do so. Coaching team is not really generating real value, training will not prepare you for C-level interactions. Poor experience overall.

    Advice to Management

    Take your people seriously. There are smart, hard working employees around. Listen to them. Stop the micromanagement and be critical of yourself as well. So many freeloaders on all levels. Stop the lies. Work on marketing so this becomes business development/sales and not a call-center with degree holders.

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Big known brand, lots of recourses, Oracle University. If put right management with the right attitude to utilize recourses wisely could be a top service provider in the hospitality niche.

    Cons

    Could pay better, shortage of training. Some managers have luck in product knowledge which leads to missunderstanding between managers and stuff. Overpromise underdeliver. Micromanagement must be gone. Salary should be structure where new employees got higher pay and senior stuff must train them this is no go. This will lead to unhappy senior engineers and unhappy environment in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Higher management at least with some business degree or HRM understanding or provide intensive management training to avoid uncertainties and misunderstanding. Have clear objectives not just dry KPI's (stats could be manipulated). The employees is looking for a leaders not the managers.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people. out of the so many hundreds of people I've met since starting, I can honestly count 1 who I din't consider to be beyond nice.

    Cons

    No inbound engine, as a result of no marketing for Europe. Not an agile company.

    Advice to Management

    Management are not the problem overall. If Marketing and branding issue was solved, no one could complain about management.

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly it's harder and harder to find pros in this company. Honestly the only pro is the technology that is really interesting. They promise a lot of things (Achievment in sales, great wages, etc...) But it's just air. In most of the sales team in EMEA, less than 20% of sales achieve their targets. If you like sales don't come to Oracle. Here are some perks: Free gym and travel for work Success will... depend on these factors that have nothing to do with your knowledge or competencies: - Territory: Your achievment will depend on the quality of your territory. Let's just say that whe you arrive, you don't get the best one. Be ready to work a lot for not much. - Every year they will change your commissions (amount and process): They will make it so it becomes harder to achieve. - So many people are here to lay back and not do much because Oracle doesn't terminate ! So be prepared to work with a lot of unqualified employees. - Your on your own. No one will help you, on your first day, if your colleagues are nice, they will give you advice, if not you won't get anything from anyone. - If you have no experience in IT or sales, this is a good entry point but after a year or two leave !! You'll be better off elsewhere

    Cons

    - Company that lies to its employees (Was told most of sales achieved, when only a few with good territories manage it - Most account managers are unqualified and spent their time launching audits because they were too lazy to actually do sales work. So with all these audits, customers hate Oracle. - Management is out of their league and spends their time manipulating forecasts instead of actually managing and... helping their team achieve. - No incoming calls ! No customer calls to have information - BDC team is dedicated to marketing instead of generating leads for sales teams. - Salary is bad compared to what's offered in any other IT company in Dublin.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the market and listen to your sales. Stop thinking about yourselvs. Learn the process and support your team in order for them to achieve.
