    I worked at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Company - Total Sales culture
    Work with the best
    Marketing and Events dept is awesome, it really supports the sales process
    As a sales organisation is second to no one

    Cons

    Middle management over confident and high on power
    Front line managers lack training and are picked from those people who fail at front line Oracle Sales
    What ever salary you start on will not increase much in your tenure

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, learning curve, paid courses, engaging projects

    Cons

    No real recognition for your skills - if you want a generous pay rise to match your knowledge and skills, you have to jump to another company or within the company. Not within the same team - which is a real shame

    Advice to Management

    does someone deserves a 15k increase? give it!

    I have been working at Oracle full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High calibre people, mostly positive constructive management style and culture, brand, potential rewards / recognition. On journey to change from product to service organisation - intended destination will be good for Oracle and its customers. Can feel lost in large organisation - sometimes a poor sense of belonging.

    Cons

    Internal complexity, information communication overload, interference / competition from other Oracle lines of business (challenges of behaving as one Oracle), challenging targets / quotas for many.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge is to improve One Oracle market perception - separate line of business agendas, and legacy relationship issues are acting as barrier to greater success.

    - Excellent progression and development opportunities with exciting projects
    - Early responsibility and interesting/varied work
    - Supportive and inclusive environment
    - Large intake of young people in recent years, lots of social events and networking opportunities
    - Well paid, good bonus, higher than average grad scheme
    - clear promotion path

    Cons

    - No sick pay or benefits for the first 2 years (excl. bonus)
    - requirement to move to a London/Reading despite being on client site most of the week

    Advice to Management

    Do not make young people relocate to a London/Reading - it’s very expensive and absolutely not necessary for the job.
