I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent People to work with. Learned so much. Had a lot of fun. Great offsite meeting and fun times. I would go back if they want me to.

Cons

Got laid off for no fault of my own. Company was acquired by Oracle. They won't hire anyone that was laid off from Sun.

Advice to Management

Stop cutting costs by laying off your most skilled workers. How about hiring back some of them?
