    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collegiality of Employees, good upside salary potential.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations particularly when business went sour. No shared sacrifice

    Advice to Management

    Upper management lacked vision. Hardware is commodity. Software and services, as evidenced by recent history, is the area where companies can profit and grow.


  2. "Industry innovator"

    Pros

    Very Innovative company across many different markets, fast paced, flexible working environment

    Cons

    Many hung up on hardware plays of the past. Awesome software but often gets down played that it works great on non-Sun hardware. Real lack of corporate marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bring in fresh blood from the outside in all areas of the company. Need to increase corporate marketing beyond senior exec blogs.
