I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Brilliant assembly of technologists supported by an Systems Engineering group 2nd to none.

Cons

They were acquired by Oracle, who now are hiring to address hardware support, as they have traditionally been a software only company. This is not a "Con" rather an opportunity to reassemble hardworking hardware engineers.

Advice to Management

Maintain the company culture of the former (early) Sun Microsystems within the Hardware component of the organization.

    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time

    Pros

    I worked for the Micro-electronics division. Pros would be flexible work culture, rooms instead of cubicles, easy going co-workers.

    Cons

    Lot of internal politics, in-efficient management, lengthy and often times flawed design cycles, non-convergence productization, low morale amongst engineers, non-competitive salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Boost the morale of the engineers by addressing their concerns, offering them competitive salaries.
