Pros

For working on whatever little is left of the once legendary graphics team. These days it is a decent place for hardware engineers/computer architects looking for a systems manufacturer. I guess Sun is the hottest place to be (with their Niagara), but SGI isn't too bad either.

Cons

The company has been in downsizing mode forever. No real new products, especially on the graphics side. MIPS has been spun off and the OS and compiler related work is gone. The only part left is the high performance computing - mostly about selling the hardware - not a complete package. So it is a dead end for software engineers.

Advice to Management

Should have focused more on the gaming aspect of graphics.

    Pros

    Die klugen Kollegen weltweit, die ihr Wissen und ihre Erfahrungen teilen.

    Cons

    Zu wenig Einfluss auf die strategische Ausrichtung machen es dem lokalen Management schwer, erfolgreich zu sein.

    Advice to Management

    Bezahlung (Bonus/Malus) für das Management nach langfristigen Zielen.
    Die Übermacht der Quartalsziele verhindert Entwicklung und Innovationen.

    Pros

    Absolut nichts - diese Firma stirbt. Nette Kollegen, aber jeder ist hoffnungslos.

    Absolutely nothing - this company is dying. Nice colleagues, but everybody is hopeless.

    Cons

    Alles. Produktqualität ist ein Desaster. Management kann nicht schlimmer sein. Überall fehlt Geld. Keine Arbeitsprozesse, keine Unterstützung vom Senior-Management.

    Alles dreht sich um Zahlen, nichts anderes zählt. Management ist an nichts anderem interessiert, als nichts an den Support zu liefern

    Everything. Product quality is a Desaster. Management cannot be worse. Money is lacking everywhere. No working processes, no support is available from senior Management.
    It is all about numbers, nothing else counts. Management is not interested in anything else, but delivery nothing to support

    Advice to Management

    Schließen Sie, niemand kann diese Firma retten.

    Close it, nobody Can save this company.
