    Pros

    Ethics, hardware chops, java engineers

    Cons

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

    Former Employee - Partner Sales in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (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.
