I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits and opportunities for career advancement if you are able to navigate the hyper competitive culture.

Cons

At every level of this company you will find backbiting and gossip. HR representatives are often the worst offenders. The gossip mongers are typically slackers who target the highest producers and try to harass them out of the company.

Advice to Management

Lots of dead wood in the rank and file, wasting major time on gossip. Lots of political maneuvering in management.
