    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    My time with SGI was one of my favorite companies. SGI was the kind of company one could feel proud to be part of. The company atmosphere is one that made you feel the company really cared about you.

    Cons

    SGI's constant financial stuggle wears down one's patience. No money means no training, no new HW, now new Systems, no new opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    It's difficult time and circumstances. The guidance of good leadership can motive employees as well as customers. Keep the focus on finding how to recover.
