    I worked at Oracle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company knowledge is outstanding.
    You can get some amazing mentors - I got VP level.
    Relationships you build are for life.
    When you leave, you realise everywhere are Oracle alumni.
    You are now one of them.
    Oracle experience changes you.
    I am super grateful to be able to learn at Oracle.
    It's a great company.

    Cons

    It's extremely hard to progress in the company when you are in a technical role.
    You may end up work hard on deals but you will not get compensated because your role is geographically bound (UK and West Europe only) and even when you support things out of the UK, as I did in Dubai, you will not get compensated.
    Another challenge is a never-ending war for commission between apps and tech, again when the deal is in tech and you sit in apps ...sorry not your number.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink split between apps and tech. Is it really helping or drive people away? Also, think about the technical role. Architect drives deals but they get stuck on Master Principal Sales Consultant level never can reach Director or VP level.
    Maybe if a career in Oracle would also contain technical path there would be less turnaround.
    Anyway, thanks for the experience I am back selling Salesforce if you didn't want me to sell Oracle :)
