Pros

SGI was a great place to work once upon a time. The web of SGI alumni is phenomenal. Too bad Rick Belluzo tanked the company and it never recovered.

Cons

SGI's biggest challenge was its financial stability and its ability to be relevant as other technology got 'good enough'. The company couldn't figure out how to make the business model work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

work on the finanical model

    Pros

    SGI is a great place to work if you like to be on the edge of supercomputing. There are very bright people aboard and the atmosphere is good.

    Cons

    Little opportunities for career development and personal growth due to financial situation. Senior management has been bad, but this has improved after the acquisition by Rackable Systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and give them more opportunities for development and growth. HR is very weak and unresponsive. Employees have suffered a lot during the past years, now it is has become payback time.

    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.
