My time at Oracle was a good experience, overall. It's a very waterfall company and even high-level managers are generally very technical, so it's kind of micro-manage-ish, not so much by design but because high-level managers can ask very detailed technical questions, and everybody is expected to have answers. The higher you are up the chain, the more detail you have to retain. Can make for a lot of management pressure if your manager isn't well dug-in politically.
Stable company, pay is decent, looks good on your resume
Advancement is pretty much on the employee, have to do your own networking to move forward, hard to see where your contribution fits sometimes, tons of administrivia
Oracle has a lot of seasoned leaders, but the top executives are old school and look out for themselves and the shareholders to the detriment of the employees. The company has been losing talent steadily for the last few years and is losing ground competitively as a result.
Solid first-line and middle management
Compensation is much lower than the market
Individual quota contributor promoting Point-of-Sale hardware and software solutions. Responsible for cradle to grave sales opportunities including prospecting, quoting, order entry, and customer resource management. I found Oracle (formerly MICROS) to be an excellent career opportunity and place to work.
Great products and training. Expectations is to exceed your quota which I did. Hard to get a raise. Some really smart and good people work there. Oracle has high expectations for their sales people. You have to be motivated to succeed and make money.
The company is large and split into multiple independent business units, so your experience will vary based upon which BU you work for. For the most part, these BUs do not work towards common goals and, at many times, are actively competing against each other and may even have incompatible goals. The senior VPs tend to be silo'ed and want things their way, without regard to what another SVP may be doing. This can lead to frustration. On the positive side, the company has great benefits and encourages community volunteer work. If you're in a well managed BU, it can be a great company to work for.
silo'ed business units
Engineering team and low level management are all great people, but upper management does not care about workers. Don't even think of getting promoted, raises over the inflation rate are rare.
Oracle technology is great to work with. Good to have these skills on your resume. Even though it entered late into the public cloud domain, the breadth and depth of the services offered are incredible!
Great benefits, 401k match and insurance benefits
Limited/nil career growth, low/nil salary increase, minimal lack of visibility, bureaucracy and red tapism
Amazing company - that could be more successful if management could figure out how to leverage internal resources and work together internally to drive customer satisfaction and customer solutions rather than continual internal sales competition/conflicts.
I had the 2 most satisfying years in my 30+ years of working.
Internal conflicts constantly - internal selling harder than external selling.
They replace sales people like they are ink cartridges... Horrible non-collaborative place to work. Every group shuts out other groups Non realistic goals. A political only place to work. You might get lucky with the right quota, manager, accounts, product to sell, in the right cycle, and right time of year to hit a big paycheck. If all 6 things don't align forget it. Also minimal technical support for sales people so you have to fight for resouces to deliver quality or even quality presales support. Customers would often say the first time they met with me, we hate Oracle because all they do is audit us. But they were stuck with Oracle for now etc..

I worked for Oracle for about 5 years over a 7-year period. As a pre-sales consultant I was given great freedom to work and collaborate with my assigned sales representative in order to provide the level of help and support required to achieve the technical win on sales engagements.
1) Layoffs due to poor organizational planning and strategy 2) No marketing brand support 3) No effective way to compete with SFDC 4) Oracle CX Cloud is losing to SFDC 5) All new accounts every year - relationship and pipe you have built over the year gets flipped to others...you have start over no customer base 6) I had to pay my own LinkedIn / Sales Navigator $80 / month 7) I had to pay for my own Discover.Org $500 /year 8) Difficult to demo product - few if any references 9) Sun setting mature products with new V1.0 to compete with SFDC 10) More layoffs coming with sales org product consolidation - losing cloud war to SFDC
Enamored by big company name brand
Only the top 1% in sales and executive organizational level make any real money
I worked with an international team testing social media applications. On the US side we were the QA leads writing the test cases and maintaining the test suite while working in an agile environment. We would generally then pass the test cases off to the offshore teams to automate in daily and weekly runs. Management was great. The only downside was because the offshore team covered automation the US team was not trained on writing the automation themselves and it could feel somewhat disconnected at times.
Good work environment, great people
Oracle does not give pay increase. They automated their renewal process meanwhile telling employees not to worry about their jobs. As soon as the automation process starts to work they lay off most of their account managers.
work from home
cancellations was always look at as your fault
