    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Project management is sane. Schedules are aggressive but generally achievable. When not, PM makes sane adjustments to requirements or schedule.
    Remote sites frequently allow employees to work from home. Mitigates high presence expectation.
    Company is been on a slow but steady growth pattern for years. Tends to succeed in most pursuits, though never unboundedly. Decent future prospects, but don't expect to get rich.

    Cons

    Methodology is too centralized, too "push-button" and too broken. Huge and written in non-scaling languages (i.e. tcl, Make). Design engineers not allowed at vendor AEs. Targets NCGs. Hence, experienced engineers are poorly utilized, not respected and not invested in.
    Global projects with high internal competition -> effective 24/7 response expectation. Not good for, say, sleep or life. Lots of lip service to balance and lots of "listening", but the realities are fixed. Part of the job.
    Still a lot of site-tribalism -> less solution sharing -> lost efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dramatically thin the PnR methodology layer. Let the EDA vendors support the engineers. They have invested more in their user support network than nVidia can afford to duplicate.

    I worked at NVIDIA full-time

    Pros

    - very flexible work environment.
    - No micromanagement
    - high priority and challenging work to newcomers
    - team members are very helpful and almost no politics

    Cons

    - Not much documentation.
    - organization is very flat (only 3 levels to CEO from an entry level engineer),so can't expect much of growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - take more care about employee growth
