    Pros

    Growth opportunities and flexible work space - from either home or the office.

    Cons

    Senior management needs to hire more people from out side of the company instead of promoting each other to positions that they have no background experience doing.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about the bottom line and being profitable.

    Pros

    At Sun Microsystems, you will find some of the best and brightest people in the industry, devoted to Sun's mission, and working incredibly hard to help our customers solve their toughest challenges.

    Cons

    The biggest downside of working at Sun Microsystems is the stock price :-)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on small building blocks and execute on them well and consistently. Don't boil the ocean.
