I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Excellent People to work with. Learned so much. Had a lot of fun. Great offsite meeting and fun times. I would go back if they want me to.

Cons

Got laid off for no fault of my own. Company was acquired by Oracle. They won't hire anyone that was laid off from Sun.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop cutting costs by laying off your most skilled workers. How about hiring back some of them?

    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) You get to work with great people.
    2) All the managers I had were wonderful to work with.
    3) There was lots of opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    1) Lots of "silos."
    2) There were so many reorganizations that it was difficult to get momentum and traction on projects.
    3) There seemed to be a lot of "make work" projects that were a waste of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a strategic plan and stick to it!
