    Current Employee - Hardware Engineering Intern in Santa Clara, CA

    I have been working at NVIDIA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamic, interesting, challenging. It is interesting also to work for a company that is not unknown to regular people. It's also nice to have some kind of feedback about the stuff you do, to see them in action. People at the company are fair and reasonable

    Cons

    I cannot think of some list of cons. When there is work, there is work. Some days you'll score approx 10 hours a day (paid overtime, of course) some days, you'll have almost no work at all, but that's how it works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps regular salary increases can be a bit bigger, you are losing some share of quality people because of that.

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

    Pros

    Managers have been good to me, but maybe I've been lucky
    Good automated test infrastructure for software
    Neat if silly campus events throughout the year
    Doesn't really try to keep up with tech-bubble trends

    Cons

    Documentation is on the weak side; frequently need to find a person instead of a document
    Internal news is spun pretty heavily

    Pros

    Young team with passion and enthusiasm and the actual work is challenging. the bar of the hiring is quite high, so most of the people's abilities are quite good. A lot of famous or big companies like to recruit people from this company.

    Cons

    The product is #1 in the industry, hard for further growth. Therefore, going to the right team with room to grow is very important in this company.

    Pros

    Great people - smart and passionate

    You don't realize how great it is until you leave and experience other workplaces.

    Cons

    Fast paced and results driven culture may not be for everyone, but if that's you then you'll thrive and have a blast

    I worked at NVIDIA

    Pros

    company has many onsite technical review sessions; salary is fine; there are still some reminiscence of startup spirit in some people, very good project management.

    Cons

    top-down management style, do not treat people with much respect, engineers have little or no say. It is a tough place to work in, people are quite tense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not believe the management will care at all about what their employees got to say, so why bother? But let me say this: if you are to award a free dinner after 7 PM, at least give it free, not a $5 coupon and people have to pay extra for literally anything and everything (well, $5 is enough for those have 1 apple for dinner, plus a bottle of water). It reminds people how low the management think of them.
