    Pros

    Great product line potential with combination of Silicon Graphics high-end systems, SW, HPC customer base and experience brought together with Rackable's diverse commodity line, green computing, and data-center/web-provider installed base.

    Cons

    After exodus, layoffs, and massive internal politics, the ones now in charge just filling a vacuum, but don't have the leadership, innovation, or background to move forward at the pace SGI famous for in the past -- lots of land grabbing and empire building, reorganization generating lot of disorganization, behind closed doors plotting, and back stabbing. The ones around that 'do' have experience and vision are brushed aside since company wants followers not leaders. Company's struggling on the inside and dysfunctional. Glad I don't work there any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive management team and people the CEO would expect to trust provide input that sounds fine on the surface, but solving the either problems that don't really exist or the wrong ones -- their really doing what's best for themselves at the expense of what's best for the company almost always based on mis-perceptions and/or erroneous info. This had led to colossal mistakes and poor decisions.
