I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Open, innovative, communicative, rewarding company. Many products currently used by the IT global community were originated at sun, java and Solaris just to name a few

Cons

Sun had to do much more on the long term viability and unfortunately failed in doing so

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Now part of Oracle, Oracle management knows very well how to drive their business. Sun has great assets, mainly people. Keeping these people will help Oracle to keep sun customers and to actually gain more customers.
