    Excellent management, great products, easy to work remote, good compensation. Overall great place to work at.

    Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe technology is great, people are smart and fun to work with, many are long time very experienced employees. The company invests in constant training and supportive of the workforce.

    ConsOverall the focus is HPC, that market isn't growing and also constantly becoming more competitive. So it was hard to close deals and make good money as a sales rep, especially for those not focused on FED market.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe only way to justify the premium prices is to have premium products. Keep investing in the hardware and software and listen to your customers and employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It's a bumpy road forward

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCompelling and interesting work. Culture is hard working but down to earth. Great folks.

    ConsFinancial setbacks during current business turnaround have led to staff reductions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great company, cool products, with customers that do interesting things!

    Senior Marketing Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsCool products, and interesting customers. Smallish in size, which means you can make an impact on a daily basis, there's plenty of work, and a nice variety of work to be done. Enjoyed everyone I worked with and reported to. Great experience!

    ConsTheir reputation in Silicon Valley. I don't know why they can't overcome their 'has been' reputation. They still make great HPC products that are extremely competitive and relevant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBenefits package was not competitive when I was there, and I think they need to spend some serious money to turn around their brand image.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A nightmare

    Sales (Current Employee)

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

    ConsEverything. 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 Senior ManagementClose it, nobody Can save this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Really taking down spiral!

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Chippewa Falls, WI

    ProsSome very great knowledgeable people and great teamwork to meet deadlines and difficult situations.

    ConsSGI has gotten very heavy in the upper management and keep bringing in more execs than focusing on the employees and business direction. With the sale of SGI Manufacturing to Jabil Circuit there doesn't appear to be a solid future left for the remaining SGI people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart cutting from the top down...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One of the best companies I've ever worked for...

    Digital Media Solutions Engineer (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsThough I missed the "Golden Age" at SGI, it was still going strong(ish) when I arrived, seemed like every single person I met there was brilliant and industrious, just a great environment...

    ConsWell I don't really know what was up, but it seemed there was some lack of vision or something in upper management, the company seemed to just crumble in a matter of a couple years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI suppose the same advice you can give to all upper management, money is not the focus, clearly seeing and adapting to the future is the priority, if you can't do it, move aside...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    In over their heads

    Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    Longmont, CO

    ProsThere are some great people there, technically and personally.

    ConsThey have spent much of my time there trying to decide what they want to build and changing their minds. As a result, they've not done much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop being creative, make a minimum viable product, and sell it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
