I worked at Silicon Graphics International

Pros

good pay, friendly people, good manager, nice working environment, reasonable work load, used to be big, so if you mention your company, a lot of people know the name.

Cons

higher level of management is not good, waste of money, a lot of politics, so it used to be big but eventually went bankrupt, and never exist as older one anymore.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

the older sgi does not exist anymore, hope the new sgi is different, and don't waste as much money as older one.

No opinion of CEO

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Should have focused more on the gaming aspect of graphics.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Schließen Sie, niemand kann diese Firma retten.

    Close it, nobody Can save this company.
