    Former Employee - Intern in Palo Alto, CA

    I worked at Sun Microsystems as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Junior employees given advanced responsibilities
    Most business units staffed by thought-leaders in their verticals
    Employees given carte blanche to pursue their own initiatives
    Widespread adoption of work from home
    Most business units able to iterate rapidly

    Cons

    Highly political corporate culture with little meritocracy despite plethora of talent
    Little stability with most employees more preoccupied with job security than their actual job
    Bias towards engineering has never been married to successful sales execution
    Lack of brand awareness in SMB/SME/LE environments
    Executive leadership apparently bent on running company into the ground

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and hand the reins over to people that know what they're doing

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
