Pros

Sun was a great company to work for, very smart colleagues, great campus, good benefits. Very interesting work.

Cons

Too much time sepnt on preparing for management so called "fire-drills".

Too many layers. Less time spent on making presentations and in attending meetings would have lead to more efficiency.
