  1.  

    Sun was a fantastic place to work!

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to customers and employees more!

  2.  

    Smart engineers, mismanaged company

    Pros

    Lots of talented engineers who take pride in their work. Mostly collaborative environment and decent work-life balance. Fun to be part of one of the premier tech companies of the dot-com era.

    Cons

    Company is downsizing, struggling to survive, giving a sense of impending doom. Entire project are cut and the staff is let go, instead of being reassigned elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some way to boost morale, and stop the brain-drain of engineers leaving the company.
