Reflections on Sun IT and what's "Best" for me.. Computerworld's 100 Best Places to Work In IT

This week I reflected on what it takes to be one of the Best Places to Work in IT. ComputerWorld does this annually, and as part of my style, I study the attributes of what makes a company "best". The answers differ depending on your point of view, but the "best" companies are "best" at staying in touch with the talent they have, the problems they need solved, and the opportunities that must have innovation to solve them. "Solve" means not to complete a project, but to contiually deliver a product with the right resource, time, and output that the customer requires. What happens in the environment comes from being "best" regardless of the view.

I choose Sun IT as one of the Best Places to work for it's innovation and dedication to introspective action. , leadership, drive, and flexibility. I choose Sun as a best place to work in IT because I truly believe if there was a better place, I would be there now. I choose my environment and my partnerships and Sun has the best mix of compensation, recognition, challenge, vision, and balance for a person like me, for a group, like I happen to work with, and for the world of diversity that I have come to enjoy as a benefit of being part of someething way larger than office cubicle work!

In IT it is great to feel needed, to work around others who share your passion for performance, problem solving, and results! An engineer is someone who practices using scientific knowledge to solve practical problems. Let me not be too busy in the meetings, deliverables, timelines and problems to allow my Type A Personality Work factor to appreciate the time and people that MAKE our environment great!
