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 Management

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

    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 Management

    Should have focused more on the gaming aspect of graphics.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Die klugen Kollegen weltweit, die ihr Wissen und ihre Erfahrungen teilen.

    Cons

    Zu wenig Einfluss auf die strategische Ausrichtung machen es dem lokalen Management schwer, erfolgreich zu sein.

    Advice to Management

    Bezahlung (Bonus/Malus) für das Management nach langfristigen Zielen.
    Die Übermacht der Quartalsziele verhindert Entwicklung und Innovationen.
