    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good Technical experience. Get to work on lot of tapeouts. Reward for good work is more challenging work.

    Cons

    Compensation not that great. Have to work 24x7. Apathy by middle management towards employees. Explotation is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep employee relatively satisfied. Some of the middle management is incompetent, need to weed them out.

    Pros

    Well structured development process Good physical infrastructure that resembles a star hotel Remotely located to focus on work Inspiring CEO

    Cons

    - Site is Lead by Joker that makes no sense when he talks (or shakes) - No appreciation for Job well done - Politics played by Senior Management - No Honesty in the "Intellectually Honest" tag line - Force India emps to be non-performers to fit the bell curve - Local management is not empowered Absolute no planning of work, day-to-day assignment, at most weekly, absolutely direction less. CEO has 4 years direction, emps have 8 hours direction. Exec staff, senior management has NO CLUE. Its always "I want you to do this, but again i might be wrong" by senior mgmt. Reviews are PCCed - Productivity, Capability, Culture. One Director says P = C+C, other says only 1 point increment every year. After PCC, every emp is ranked. How can you rank 5000 emps? most of india staff is ranked low. If you walk-on-water, you are rewarded with 1 point UP and paid to market. If you do your job well you are paid 60% of what market pays. Every year 5% attrition is forced in this way to bring new and cheap labor. Entire management including HR knows about incapable senior executives, but no action is taken since they are close to CEO, but emps are regularly pushed out in the name of PIP (performance improvement plan). Why this is not done for exec and senior management? Site leadership is a joke. leader is joker. Crystal clear communication (written and verbal) by CEO is also mis-interpreted and communicated. US centric, absolutely insensitive to local timings, meetings end by 2300hrs and start early!

    Advice to Management

    Open cubicle is not the only policy to be enforced for all. PIP and 5% attrition needs to be enforced too! Cmon, wakeup and shakeup the senior management!

    Pros

    Pay is good that's the only thing I can say.

    Cons

    -Too much politics. -Not a good company to start your career. -In Pune this company actually did acquisition of a start-up firm. Now crowd from this start-up has formed a good family and most of the other employees you always find working for senior management's home need. -Work Exp what you will get here is not needed anywhere. -Too much of time to do donkey work. -Even if you worked for 3 year your salary will be same what you had at your joining.

    Advice to Management

    Should hire some good managers.

    Pros

    For reasonable working hours. To end the abuse of management. To maintain personal dignity. TO GO HOME DURING DAYLIGHT

    Cons

    Labor camp like working conditions: "work shall set you free". Dear Leader like leadership, where Dear Leader is always nice ethical and honest and the dirty work is done by those below. Management only too happy to start abusing, to see how good it must feel.

    Advice to Management

    Eventually this place will get the union.

    Pros

    The only reason to work in NVIDIA is you are a "GEEK" or if money is the prime reason to live life for you. NVIDIA pays relatively better than market for which it takes much more from you as compare to market. NVIDIA is very supportive if you are in hospital, it can provide you the internet connection to be online and work.

    Cons

    They work for 24 hours in a day and 365 days a year. More you kill your personal life, more will be the appraisal for the year. The biggest drawback in NVIDIA is they work on the tools and scripts written by NVIDIA only which are not used any where else in the market. After working for 2-3 years in NVIDIA, people are not enough competitive to work anywhere in the market. NVIDIA doesnot provide you the space to learn things of your own. It will make sure that you will be always overloaded with repetitive work and cannot learn innovations. This is the prime reason that people dont resign from NVIDIA because they dont know anything in the market to get an offer. The previous analysis will show you that all who joined NVIDIA as fresher are left with no option other than going for higher studies if they want to leave NVIDIA.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is not very comfortable. The effective life of leads in NVIDIA is almost same as a fresher other than having a blackberry in hand which will occupy you more than a laptop.
