    Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in Toronto, ON

    I have been working at Oracle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Work from home as much as you want. - If you are smart and working hard, you will be rewarded. Plus you can find more interesting projects to work on. - Awesome open-minded people to work with. - Convenient office location in Toronto downtown near CN Tower.

    Cons

    - Incredible bureaucracy to use any new technology/library/framework or to hire a new person. - Forced vacation on Christmas. - Unpaid pager duty for all developers (about two weeks in a year). - Recently they cut our benefits (medical insurance) stating that now we have better and more flexible options. Just be honest with people when you need to cut costs!

    Pros

    Great experience working with enterprise applications along side some highly experienced and capable professionals.

    Cons

    Need to work with Oracle technologies, most of which are in a state of flux. It makes it hard to release software of the ground underneath you is moving. Hope the dust gets settled.
