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

    Pros

    Passionate product people, good reputation, majority of people strive to do the right thing for the customer, some great people and true friends can be made

    Cons

    Managers of spreadsheets not people, personal careers get more attention than revenue, head office mentality, if you are not there then you don't count. Bureaucracy is created that fulfils job roles, justifies peoples existience and strangled growth and the can do attitutude the company had when Scott McNealy was there

    Doesn't Recommend
