Sun was a fantastic place to work!

Former Employee - Account Executive in Remote, OR
Former Employee - Account Executive in Remote, OR

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

Pros

The people were some of the brightest and the attitude was "go for it!"

Cons

The acquisition by Oracle but the brakes on a lot of projects. It was probably all for the best but the spirit was dampened.

    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?
