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

    Pros

    Terrific culture with lots of autonomy and investment in R&D. Very Global company with strong ties and relationships around the world. Innovative and always on the cutting edge of technology. Real spirit of collaboration and community.

    Cons

    Leadership lost its way. There was no real line of succession and ability to iterate and move forward quickly. Invested too much in 2-3 key verticals to the exclusion of others. Missed the boat completely on commodity computing.
