Former Employee - Project Manager in Newark, CA
Former Employee - Project Manager in Newark, CA

I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great products, great people, great vision. This company lived cloud computing before it became a buzz word in the industry. Very good work life balance.

Cons

Failed to monetize the great ideas, ranging from Java to utility computing. Somewhere along the line, lost its leadership (especially after Scott left as the CEO). Failed to respond to changing markets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably too late...
