Pros

If you're looking for a stable job, this is the place for you. There is a move within the IT department to move to fairly contemporary technologies (SOA, ESB, BPEL, etc). So, good experience is possible to get.

Management is well intentioned to improve development processes, products, and services to customers.

Cons

This is an Oracle heavy shop. If you don't like using Oracle products and tools, this is not the shop for you. This shop has a bit of a cowboy legacy which management is slowly trying to replace with more formal processes (allocating appropriate development and testing environments).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen a little more to your people in the trenches when it comes to schedules, technological decisions, etc. (This is pretty typical for most big corporations).

    I worked at BC Ferries as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is relatively high and the management overall was very supportive and friendly.

    Cons

    On call generally. Hard to get full time hours and they have a very strict on call policy. Part of the company is unionized which means that there are a lot of people who might not be the best in their positions and moving up is slow and ineffective.
