    Pros

    Great people, good salary, unlimited time off policy

    SGI was recently acquired by HPE. If your job wasn't eliminated, you will become just a number.
    SGI "temporarily" discontinued 401k match months prior to acquisition, then never offered a retroactive match once acquisition was announced.

    I worked at Silicon Graphics International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management was friendly and helpful in regards to an up and coming engineering intern. Products were unique and interesting once created.

    Cons

    Work was very one directional, rarely left my desk. I believe that being involved in a more serious capacity would have remedied this issue though.
