In the five months that Allison, Applications Sales Representative for Oracle Marketing Cloud, has been with Oracle, she’s realized that being a self-starter is the key to finding success at the world’s leading cloud technology company. “Oracle is a great company with great benefits and a self-starter culture: you get out what you put in; everything isn’t laid out for you; you have to be resourceful on where to find things,” Allison says.
As part of an upmarket team, Allison focuses on selling Oracle Marketing Cloud’s applications to high-revenue businesses in the East Coast. “Oracle Marketing Cloud is made up of a series of billion-dollar acquisitions of really great products, so I think we have really good solutions to offer our customers,” Allison explains.
Though being a self-starter comes naturally to Allison (she makes her own jewelry, manages her dog’s own Instagram account with 5,000+ followers, and is a new mom), she’s grateful to have a team that has her back when her own drive and resources aren’t enough to get the job done. “I really like my team; it’s a combination of existing Oracle employees and the new hires with which I joined the company. It’s nice to have people to lean on, so we try to take care of each other,” Allison shares.
Allison’s traits feel right at home at Oracle’s startup-like, flexible environment. As she points out, “Oracle has all these great products, and it’s awesome that we get to be creative and scrappy to find out how to tell their story—not to mention that we’re able to work from home and enjoy a proper work-life balance.”
