    Pros

    Active, aggressive culture and environment to push things to make it work as 'Speed of light'

    Cons

    Most decisions are not made by engineering, but depends on higher management / marketing decision even though it'll harm whole project in a long term projection as an engineering perspective. Organization is so called 'matrix' and each management are related with lot of complexity, so making management to accept engineering perspective opinion is always time-consuming, challenging experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even though there's marketing / management pressure exists, sometimes need to listen engineer's opinions which possibly cause delay of schedules. Just hurrying and put people not qualified enough eventually will hurt whole project.

    Former Contractor - Contractor in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at NVIDIA as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Small Group to work with.

    Cons

    Took two weeks to get system set up and running on par with any other companies one day.
    Really bad CAD interface and help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help your contractors out more than expecting them to know how everything is supposed to work (system). It would be nice to hear the truth once in a while from Upper Management rather than some Mumbo Jumbo when you ask a time frame question dealing with job security or other mundane issues. Company Culture comes from the top down, so when you act like it's OK to treat people with disrespect then it becomes OK all the way down the ranks.
