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

    Pros

    cowboy club, great opportunities, liberty, flexibility and room to get things done. Great for engineers but also for sales & marketing.

    Cons

    more and more politics over the years. difficulties to get things done on a local level, more and more sign offs and signatures needed at Corp level for local stuff. Less room to get things done and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what happens in the field and not only in the US, they’re the ones bringing in the money
