Great place with innovative culture

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)

ProsEthics, hardware chops, java engineers

ConsInability to convert the corp. DNA from hardware to a (profitable) software company. Or simply ran out of time. Bad acquisition strategy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A great company to work at !

    Partner Sales (Former Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    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… Cons: Sun had to do much more on the long term… Advice to Senior Management: Now part of Oracle, Oracle management knows very well how to drive their business. Sun has great assets,… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
