    I worked at Sun Microsystems

    Pros

    > Genuine respect for employees
    > Focussed roles - Developers only develop features, they don't fix customer bugs. Sustenance takes care of that.
    > Incredible technologies - way too much to learn
    > Extremely capable senior management
    > Never pressured for time, and mentored well

    Cons

    > Company needed more focus on how to earn money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish Sun till existed and wasn't sold away. I hope the Sun culture is still preserved after the transition to Oracle.
