I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for 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.

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Software is just as important as hardware.
