Lucky Twice

Engagement Architect (Former Employee)
Bellevue, WA

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

ProsBrilliant assembly of technologists supported by an Systems Engineering group 2nd to none.

ConsThey were acquired by Oracle, who now are hiring to address hardware support, as they have traditionally been a software only company. This is not a "Con" rather an opportunity to reassemble hardworking hardware engineers.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaintain the company culture of the former (early) Sun Microsystems within the Hardware component of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
