    Good place to work for, despite some unneeded bureaucracy at management level

    Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsEasy Job, not too much pressure. If you are not too career-focused you can stay there forever without working too hard. Good benefits, good colleagues, good fun, great technology products!

    ConsVery unclear career path, inconsistent quality of Senior Managers. Too focused on revenue reporting, not enough on profit margins.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCut the middle management bureaucracy - continue on delivering outstanding value to customers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Kick butt and have fun while helping customers solve tough challenges

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Somerset, NJ

    ProsAt Sun Microsystems, you will find some of the best and brightest people in the industry, devoted to Sun's mission, and working incredibly hard to help our customers solve their toughest challenges.

    ConsThe biggest downside of working at Sun Microsystems is the stock price :-)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on small building blocks and execute on them well and consistently. Don't boil the ocean.

    Industry innovator

    Sales Engineering (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsVery Innovative company across many different markets, fast paced, flexible working environment

    ConsMany hung up on hardware plays of the past. Awesome software but often gets down played that it works great on non-Sun hardware. Real lack of corporate marketing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to bring in fresh blood from the outside in all areas of the company. Need to increase corporate marketing beyond senior exec blogs.
