No the customer surveys were not done just to make themselves feel good. SGI is trying very hard to become more efficient. They are doing about everything they can. It will probably take a bit to do this with a big company though. These surveys were the first time the head-upper management saw what the customers really felt. I heard they were shocked! That's how out of touch they were - they had no idea!
They are trying hard to turn it around though. The employees are not just sitting on their hands saying "it'll be alright." They still want to win.
Yeah, I'd go back there. It was really fun and they people are great! It was fun being at a company w/ cutting edge tech. I do wish the operation was more efficient though. It was frustrating trying to get orders out cuz it seemed so disorganized.
I recommend SGI as a place to work. I'll really recommend it once Ed's dead.
Thank you for your reponses of an ex-employee's and customers' survey feed back. Did SGI using the customers' feed back proactively? or/ just another business practice to keep themself busy.
SGI needs new board of directors and fire McCracken! His past reward does not help SGI to survive in the future! I am not
looking forward to merger to revcover my investment. I am looking forward to a new board and leadership to turn the company around.
Even though "Buy Low, Sell High" may work at current price level. SGI may disapear from listing if change is not being made at
the top management level. It is may take the lawsuit to make the board of directors aware of SGI's problem. The lawsuit hurts
the investors. However, This may lead the board to get rid of McCracken and his marketing managers that may be much more
beneficial to all investors.
I guess I jumped the gun and bought alot at 13 should've waited
a week or two, but Right now ,
I don't care...
Got a lot of good football to watch.. can't wait till tommorow..

Enjoy the great times,
K2B1 , don't worry about that , it seems like the enter key is
stuck ..you can if you want to , take out the keys one by
one and clean the keyboard..use a key or something to take out
May you all have a great 1998, hopefully extremely optimistic ...
I agree , McCracken was on his way out ever since he got that
Technology award , it seemed that he was more into Bill and Hillary than noticing that Intergraph and others had higher
performance than SGi's workstations for half the price.
Here's to 1997. . . wow, the 90's are already over, (gulp)
... a new millenium ..unbelievable.
elvii would you go back.i hear alot of people that left
