Failed to Live Up to Expectations
My time at Oracle was filled with frustration and misalignment with management. The company was trying to build a local capability which never existed before. They brought me on board to establish this capability; however they were not upfront about this aspect of the role. As a result I spent a lot of time trying to align to expectations that kept on changing as the company wasting to figure out what worked.
Pros
Pension Fund: Employer Contribution
Cons
Medical Aid Structure

Fractured IT departments
Old school trying to be innovators. Too many 'lifers' at Oracle to be an innovator. Focus is on reducing costs, not investing into the organization.

Productive and fun
I have learned my best sales methods in this company. On a typical day it's customer meetings, getting deal approvals from MEA, doing forecasts and updating pipeline.
I manage big accounts such as Eskom, MTN, Tiger brands, Multichoice and Telkom.

I manage the entire life cycle of the Eskom account.

The best part of my job is that I get to learn from different lines of business and collaborate internally to recognize the big wins.

I love being part of a bigger team but also appreciate my individual growth.

This job has taught me how to be a leader.
Pros
Growth
Cons
Growth

High pressure environment.
I have learned a lot and I have met some really great guys at Oracle.

It is important for companies not to loose perspective that clients are ultimately people and business is done based on relationships with people... Especially in Africa.


Oracle currently has one of the largest and most exciting product portfolios and I believe that they will soon be a top contender on most lines of IT, including cloud.


.
Pros
Fantastic products
Cons
Competitiveness between LOBs causes mixed messaging.
