Pros

Growth opportunities and flexible work space - from either home or the office.

Senior management needs to hire more people from out side of the company instead of promoting each other to positions that they have no background experience doing.

Advice to Management

Think more about the bottom line and being profitable.

    Pros

    Sun Microsystems is a very stress free environment. In the approx 5 years that I worked at Sun, it was one of the most comfortable working environments that I worked in. There was also great pride in working for Sun. There was a lot of opportunity to work on cool, industry technology.

    Cons

    There was very limited growth opportunity at Sun Microsystems. Due to the downturn, there were no promotions or changes in the team. Also, there was a lot of confustion in the senior management's approach to the downturn.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and save some of the best assets (Java, Solaris) in the industry.
