I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Engineering driven organization that took good care of it's people. Lots of perks, great people, fun to work at.

Cons

Engineering driven organization that took bad care of it's products. Never really profitable outside it's core business of hardware.

Advice to Management

Software is just as important as hardware.
