    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    Health insurance is the only reason why I would have stayed

    No interest in employees of acquired businesses. It's a very 'every man for himself' mentality and culture.

    I worked at Oracle full-time

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to travel around APAC in my first few years at Oracle. It was a lot of fun and I got to work on a lot of interesting projects with some big clients.

    Cons

    This isn’t everyone’s experience. You have to get lucky being placed in the right team, often it will. That’s to know this ahead of time.

    Advice to Management

    Actively look for ways you help accelerate individuals based on their preferences

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

    Pros

    1. Good package.
    2. Respected industry wise.
    3. New things to learn.

    Cons

    1. Almost 100% offshore consultants.
    2. Too less focus upon your primary role.

    Advice to Management

    1. If you are earning from Australia then recruit few Australian Consultants rather than going 100% offshore.
    2. Keep a support team in Australian shore. Making customers wait till 12:30(India offshore) to get support or stop supporting at 11:30(USA offshore) does not work.

    Pros

    free gym, parking on site

    Cons

    territories are constantly changing, you will lose your pipeline that you build, time and time again to other reps, if you're lucky you'll obtain deals from other reps ready to close.

    Advice to Management

    Reps are working their hardest to build pipeline in a tough market, doing 50 calls a day to then lose pipeline because of poor management decisions.
