Pros

NVIDIA is a well-run, aggressive and focused company. Jen-Hsun personally sets a tempo and culture that permeates the organization and make it a great place to work. NVIDIA is not a political company, and its great to work in an environment where everyone is pulling in the same well-defined direction. NVIDIA recruits and retains some incredibly smart people, making it a place where it is a delight to work as part of a very able team.

Cons

The hours can be long - you are expected to be available to answer the flood of emails 24/7; but that is part of being an aggressive organization, and provided you are able to manage the balance between work and life, which not all can, it is a rewarding environment to be part of and worth the effort.

Advice to Management

Keep pushing hard on us, that is ultimately why we like working here.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is OK, compare to other company. Raise is pretty good, better than previous companies I've been in.

    Cons

    Long hours. Weekend and long nights are pretty much expected. New cubicle discourage privacy, privacy does not exist.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect people to come in weekend and stay long nights. It work nows, but soon, there won't be any old knowledge left because every one will leave.

    Pros

    The pay is above average for the industry. Work hours are flexible, unless you have to go to meetings of course. Another upside is you get to experience many different types of jobs, moving around from team to team. You don't just get stuck with a very specific job.

    Cons

    You must put in a lot of hours. You will definately have to work overtime, and you are expected to. Employees staying until midnight is not an uncommon occurance.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more time for employees to breathe. Overall, though, I do enjoy the culture here.
