    Upper management from USA needs to stop being "duped" take off blinders and spend some quality time to how this hub is managed. It's a shame.

    Pros

    consistent commission, always work to do and deals to find

    Cons

    big oracle machine can slow you down with tedious tasks and processes that may not make sense

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember when you were a rep and help your reps focus on revenue generating activities in addition to allowing them to do what makes sense for them, not a process that is forced on them

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

    Pros

    You can make good money

    Cons

    1.There are to many games around call metrics. Allot of reps use trick like calling VRU's to pad the call stats. 2. Your not really selling at Oracle, you target your account on a regular basis for license compliance and use that to drive orders. he problem is your sell to your customer based on the fear of being sued by Oracle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Oracle has great technology and does not need to be so aggressive with it's license policies to to gain traction with it's customers. Oracle grows by acquisition and because of that they have more capability to cover business issues for there clients than the vast majority of there competitors,

    I have been working at Oracle

    Pros

    -outstanding solutions, technical colleagues and ongoing training
    -you'll earn a lot of money if you can get one of the few productive patches, but for the most part, those just AMs stick around forever
    -base salary for Sales is higher than average
    -based on previous reviews, the India office sounds splendid, at least.

    Cons

    When I was interviewing, I was assured the OTE is attainable (it's not-35% of your comp is out of your control, either OD or field counterpart dependent). Managers are completely inept- worn out, former reps without any mgmt training who throw reps under the bus regularly, paranoid about losing their own jobs, to be fair. Expect to be micromanaged, and to consistently deliver not just impossible sales quotas but performance metrics ( 50+ calls/day, 10 tracked c-level appointments/week, 12 hours talk time/week, etc). We're so busy faking our stats we don't have time to sell! Last year's Q1 kickoff consisted of everyone squeezing into the floor director's office for one serving of orange juice from the vending machine and sparking wine ("mimosa!" ..almost) in Dixie cups. Don't be deceived, carefully review what people are saying here and separate reviews for the hub you are considering. There are valid reasons this in particular hub has seen over 3x avg rep churn this year alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop threatening us. Listen, and try to coach us for the greater success of the org.
