"Life at Sun was a blast! Good people, many lessons to learn. Scott was the best, bar none."

Former Employee - Administrative Assistant in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

In the early years it was a lot of hard work, but also so much fun. We banded together, beer busts, water fights, April Fools and all. Worked hard and played hard.

Cons

By and large the planets could have been a good thing, however it fell apart. Egos somehow always get in the way, folks somehow cannot do good work for the sake of all. Too bad, Sun was a magical place until people's egos get in the way. Those long haired, ponytail types somehow managed to take down the castle.

Advice to Management

This would be a general statement to any corporate entity: HR is for management and not for the employees. Too bad. HR should be an unbiased source where everyone feels safe. One should never have to be concerned that the boss will always win because s/he is in management.
