    I worked at Sun Microsystems UK full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They offer a great benefit package and look after employees very well.

    Cons

    Sun became rather big in a short period of time and that, together with the credit crisis turned Sun into the red numbers. This made it easy for Oracle to take over Sun. The once flexible company turned a bit less flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well, that is hard to say, since there is no management, but at the time I would say "controlled growth" is good instead of the explosion in growth Sun went through.
