Cray can be exciting but software management has poor leadership

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsCutting edge hardware technology. Pride in working on the most powerful computers on Earth. The ability to make a difference in a small to medium size company. Bonuses for the last few years. Very American company.
