Has had its fifteen minutes of fame.

ProsFor 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementShould have focused more on the gaming aspect of graphics.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I worked at Silicon Graphics International full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: The technology is great, people are smart and fun to work with, many are long… Cons: Overall the focus is HPC, that market isn't growing and also constantly becoming more competitive. So it was hard… Advice to Senior Management: The only way to justify the premium prices is to have premium products.… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
