It has been a good place to work but who knows what the future holds under Oracle?

Technical Manager (Current Employee) Markham, ON (Canada)

ProsI work with some great people and have been involved in some fascinating projects. Once you master the bureaucracy (and accept it's weirdness), you can get a lot done if you are working in a technical role. Compensation is very fair, and the work from home option has been wonderful - I have never been more productive in a job.

ConsIt seems likely that Oracle is going to dismantle huge parts of Sun which of course will have a direct effect on Sun Canada. I think we will become a true branch office with little local management. A significant layoff is expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have no advice for the soon-to-be irrelevant leadership at Sun Canada.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
