    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that it has been absorbed into Oracle things should be fairly stable, but I hope it hasn't lost that cool vibe of caring for all the employees and valuing their contributions.

    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Sun Microsystems was a really great place to work from many perspectives: real offices, with doors and walls that went to the ceilings, great corporate culture, its embrace of telecommuting, the beautiful (Rivermark) campus, above-average compensation.

    Cons

    I wish Sun's executives had been able to make the hard decisions (cutting people's pet but money-losing, non-strategic projects in favor of profitable or strategic projects) that were necessary to survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sun Microsystems is gone, so offering advice to management is kind of pointless now, isn't it?
