There are two places within Oracle that you do not want to work. Marketing and Sales. Regimes in both places only last a few years (at best). Oracle hires fresh new "faces" in Sales, strings them along, feeds them cool-aid to jump start, and then when they fail, they get laid off in droves. In sales, its rinse and repeat. Over and over and over. In Marketing they hire some new "auteur", and that person brings with them their "team". They throw away everyone that was part of the old regime, and start with their "fresh" ideas. The new "wunderkind" pander to SC's purse until they fall out of favor with her. If you spend too much on marketing, your head will roll. Every new marketing regime wants to be "cool" which always backfires. Getting rid of the "old people" in Oracle to change the mentality and culture of Oracle is not how to become cool either. Many people within Oracle, don't actually "like" Oracle. How can you sell or market Oracle if you think Oracle sucks? Also, people do "Lets try this" to fix a problem without understanding what they are doing. Oracle is business to business and both sales and marketing seem to forget that reality. Oracle is not glamorous. Oracle is needed to make money for other businesses to make money. Its not rocket science. Instead of selling and marketing as value prop and how Oracle's tech is powerful and strong (albeit expensive in some ways), each new sales and marketing team runs around with their own agenda and don't coordinate effectively with the other parts of Oracle. When Oracle hires people into the Sales and Marketing orgs that 1) Understand Oracle's business 2) Actually LIKE Oracle and work with what works 3) Understand the "adult/non-cool" way to market and sell software and services as a B to B, is when things will be better or change. Sailboats and Racing Cars, unless used to make LE look more like Tony Stark and elevate his mythos, is wasted money, and SC know that.
