    Former Employee - User Interface Designer in Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Sun offered developers and engineering staff independence, a creative environment, intelligent colleagues, access to high-end technology, and a great campus and working environment. There was a real commitment to quality software design.

    Cons

    The development process was often driven by marketing and engineering managers working at cross-purposes to one another. There was little support or fulfillment working on products that got cancelled. Ultimately it burned people out.
