    Pros: Well rounded benefits - 401K matching, Healtcare offerings and great Work Life balance Cons: Could have had a better investment advisory services. Saloman Smith Barney - was not great in advise and once caused me a loss when I tried to sell my options, convincing me to not sell.

    The company benefits included health, dental, and vision coverage. The employee paid for a portion of the monthly premium, but Sun Microsystems covered most of the cost. The medical PPO plan was good.
