    I worked at Sun Microsystems

    Pros

    Sun was a fantastic environment for engineers, run by engineers. The company created a collaborative and supportive culture in which innovation was valued and recognized.

    Cons

    Unfortunately no-one at Sun could really figure out how to build a sustainable technology business, and compensated by allowing many projects to proceed in the hope that something would work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus and follow-through were required--we tried to do too much with too little commitment, and ended up falling short compared to competitors who were very good at the few things they did well.
