    In over their heads

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Longmont, CO

    ProsThere are some great people there, technically and personally.

    ConsThey have spent much of my time there trying to decide what they want to build and changing their minds. As a result, they've not done much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being creative, make a minimum viable product, and sell it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its a job

    Member of Technical Staff (Current Employee)
    Eagan, MN

    ProsGood people
    company finally making money
    Offices for most engineers
    Pretty much make your own work schedule

    ConsWork lots of hours
    Understaffed
    Many layoffs
    benefits are below average

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire back some of the folks you laid off over the past couple of years. Better benefit package.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Changing from SGI to Rackable

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWhen joining Silicon Graphics inc's visualization group, I was impressed by the future vision on visualization products, and the road map.

    ConsOnce acquired by Rackable, everything changed. No more supports on visualization products. Cutting payment and planed to shift all job to oversea.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCan you image how difficult to visit 50 customers world wide in 3 months? Could the number become 100 next Q?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Started great, Rackable acquisition destroyed employee trust, Sun service management was the nail in the coffin.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWas a great place to work. Anyone could make a difference. Loved the company!

    ConsAfter the Rackable acquisition management had no respect for former SGI employees and I found this was consistent with former Rackable employees as well. SGI was a leader in service but after bringing in management from Sun to take over service you could kiss that goodbye.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that destroying service destroys the ability to sell to existing customers. Duh!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
