Goodbye, Sun. → #
"I had the pleasure of working in VSP from 2002-2004, which was the most fun I ever had in the IT industry ... It was good while it lasted, until our entire department (200 people) got RIF'ed in May 2004."
I was also part of that RIF, which as I recall, followed directly from Schwartz getting CEO, Knox - the only profit making VP in the company - "resigning" and Kealia being bought in. The bright side: 5 years of not watching the share price drop even further and looking over my shoulder for the next RIF. Sun was a fantastic technology company, but they didn't know business from their elbows, and Schwartz is the shining beacon of that lack of business acumen. I presume now we will see a fiscally sound company with unexciting tech. Hey ho!
