    I worked at Sun Microsystems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Tech savvy, good people. Extremely entrepreneurial which is good for those people who prefer little structure in their corporate setting.

    Cons

    Decision making was too distributed. There were always a number of "chiefs" who needed to be involved with a decision which stifled our ability to execute more quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better luck next time.
