    I worked at Sun Microsystems

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity for growth and travel, great collaboration amongst various departments and management, Great support of administrative staff to ensure logistics for travel and working with third party vendors

    Cons

    Must be able to work in ambiguous and ever-changing environment, technology at off-site venues was often patchy, thus making for difficult hands-on training sessions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure yearly performance reviews are delivered (Historically, not much emphasis and attention was paid to meeting the time lines of the review cycle as workloads often overtook such personnel/administrative tasks)

    The CEO concentrated too much on criticizing the competition instead of promoting his company and streamlining operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CUT COSTS!
    STREAMLINE OPERATIONS!
