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.
Up to 4 weeks vacation accrued, 6 weeks parental paid leave, 3 months unpaid
Great healthcare coverage (I'm told by many medical providers that it's one of the most generous), vision coverage was also very good, 401k matching. Work from home (at Sun, not Oracle).
Great 401k package. Educated people to work with.
Stock options, amount of vacation, health insurance
not treating military staff well
Work from home was the best perk of working at Sun
The best perk I miss was the company shut down for the week of July 4 and the week between Christmas and New Year. It gave families the ability to plan vacations ahead of time. Everyone returned to work happy and rested and this was also a cost savings on operations expenses.
The company offered comparable benefits to other companies. The deductable and co payments for medical were very reasonable.
