    Pros

    Industry still ranks NVIDIA highly on resume

    Cons

    Majority of company hasn't seen a pay increase or bonus in 3 years. Instead, pay-cuts and removal of multiple employee incentives.

    Senior Execs have no clue on products being made and only remain in position because CEO is loyal to a fault.

    No career advancement, no compensation for exceptional achievements, and a pipeline of inferior products.

    Absolutely insane product schedules that get missed by several months seem to be a regular situation with products despite input from engineering giving ample notice and feedback to avoid in the future.

    Senior Execs stick head in sand and pretend nothing is wrong. If you're the one bringing up issues or highlighting a fault with a product, you get heckled despite company claims of valuing "intellectual honesty".

    NVDA still thinks it is a startup and runs accordingly. At the current size, that means total chaos with the occasional "lucky product" that saves the day.

    Advice to Management

    Refresh the executive staff and start rewarding the highest performers before they take positions elsewhere.

    CEO should shape up and start fixing (not ignoring) problems before NVDA board members show him the door.
