    Pros

    Lot of fun events for interns. Chilled environment. Email centric work culture. Had a lot of fun in the summer.

    Cons

    Not many that I can think of. Company provided everything that I expected. Can't comment on perks since I worked as an intern.

    Pros

    Jensen is very passionate CEO , motivates people to strive and perform better.
    Very lean Operations, company does everything with a shoe string budget. They execute well with what budget they are given.
    Smart people

    Cons

    Benefits are less. Pay is not up to the market rate.
    Even a push pin doesn't get moved without Jensen's consent. Jensen is on top of everything.
    No wonder the company doesn't cross $4B in revenue.
    Improve Hiring processes . Make it more strict across all teams.
    Lot of talented people are leaving the company. As a result those positions are filled with incompetent people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop throwing Jensen Card around. Understand priorities better.
    Speed of light is not the way to get things done.
    Functional teams need to talk to each other.
    Bring back free food .

    Pros

    Experienced colleagues and good management.
    Quality is given importance than pace. Individual development cycle has a steep growth. Flexible timing and good rapport with team.

    Cons

    Rewards and recognition are less.
    Add more stock options.
    Project deliverables must be time bound and planning for future must be projected to team members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees who contribute more in team.

    Pros

    Company had huge growth while I was there. Jensen had excellent leadership and vision, Chris M was amazing. Culture was the world is our oyster and we were reaching for it. Light every pixel. Quite inspiring.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Didn't listen to field input about what customers wanted, or only certain customer input was valued. Lots of missed opportunity and the bureaucrats always knew more than the guy sitting with the customers every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Was a fun place to work. Lost the formula, got too big. Manager felt scared, threatened, couldn't take advantage of asset/experience.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time

    Pros

    The ability to gain lots of experience in your specialization. Nvidia provides design work and test work which is good because you can understand the full cycle product process.

    Cons

    Management is pretty blind to internal problems. Most of the managers are not qualified for their positions and have moved up through the ranks do to their seniority, less their management or technical prowess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire new management.
