Lower calculation in parallel than in serial

I have a strange problem. I have a case with about 300K cells. I am trying to run it in parallel. It works but it is lower than with only one core.
I have looking for solution in this forum but there is nothing. I run it on a cluster SGI UV 2000. The processors are Sandy Bridge E5-4640 @ 2.40GHz.
Even with 2 processors, it is lower (the executation time and the clock time): 1 processor with 4gb is faster than 2 with 4gb.
The problem does not come from the communication between the processors (I think) because even the execution time is bigger.
I tried to run other cases with less cells or more cells, and it is always the same result.
I also tried to run these cases on my computer, not the cluster, and parallel performance are better than serial performance with one core.
I modified the solvers, the decomposition method but even if it can improve the time of calculation, it is still lower.
If someone has an idea, I would be grateful.
