Working for Sun Microsystems

Technical Consultant (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsCollegiality of Employees, good upside salary potential.

ConsUnreasonable expectations particularly when business went sour. No shared sacrifice

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management lacked vision. Hardware is commodity. Software and services, as evidenced by recent history, is the area where companies can profit and grow.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sales Engineering (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Sun Microsystems

ProsVery Innovative company across many different markets, fast paced, flexible working environment

ConsMany hung up on hardware plays of the past. Awesome software but often gets down played that it works great on non-Sun hardware. Real lack of corporate marketing.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to bring in fresh blood from the outside in all areas of the company. Need to increase corporate marketing beyond senior exec blogs.
