reisio's got some good comments up there. I have to agree completely with the job listing scroll, both in terms of speed and bump. They rub me the wrong way as well.
The side scrolling from page to page is also a bit herky-jerky for me--it's an interesting effect, but if it's not completely smooth it's just going to draw attention to itself. I'm not sure why a simple page switch wouldn't suffice here. Especially when the Sybase jobs page doesn't use it (navigating to or from that page just uses a simple switch).
Also, why is the main docs page a pop-up? This and the side-scrolling issue make the site feel a little "scattered" to me, as if it is lacking design cohesion. You've got one effect here, another effect there, and then another effect over there. The end result for me is "hodge-podge-edness."
That being said, it does look nice.
(Hmm. After playing around with the navigation a little more, I notice that the pop-up box only pops up if you click on "docs" from the "Sybase jobs" page--clicking on it from any other page does nothing. This is also very bad in terms of cohesion and consistency.)
Oh, and a final pet peeve of mine: recursive links--that is, having a link to the page that you are already on. On the home page, the home link should be deactivated, etc.
(Oh, another consistency issue: at first, the navigation menu items remain "depressed" to indicate the current page, but this doesn't work for the Sybase jobs page. Also, after clicking on the Sybase jobs page, clicking on the Services page does not leave the Services menu item depressed--it pops back up again. Clicking on either Home or Engage (which makes me think of Patrick Stewart, by the way) restores the behavior. The more I play with this, the more I'm finding that the various behaviors are very inconsistent.)
I'm using FF 3.5.7 on Windows Vista, by the way--but all of the behavior issues I mentioned above (jerky scrolling, navigation inconsistencies, etc.) are identical in IE7.
[Edit: Heh, apologies if this all seems overly harsh and nit-picky. I do like the look overall, and think it could be top-notch if some of these issues were addressed.]
