    Nvidia values it employees very highly. It gives them the opportunity to contribute a lot and grow a lot at the
    same time. It rewards employees with cash, stock, and plenty of good opportunities.

    Cons

    I do not know of cons at nvidia. this is a great company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have much advise to upper management. they know their employees well and spend lots of time trying to understand each person's needs.

    Software QA Intern

    Pros

    The location is convenient and the company campus is really nice. I also loved the weather, though that has more to do with the area. My coworkers were all very friendly and helpful, and so was my manager. The technology I worked with was pretty interesting. I was also fortunate enough to meet a lot of the chief executive team, and I liked them a lot. The intern events were also a lot of fun.

    Cons

    The work itself was extremely boring, and there was a lot of overtime (which I didn't mind due to the overtime pay). It was difficult to meet people outside my team. The company also has a relatively corporate feel, which makes sense given it's size. Not my cup of tea.

    Pros

    Exciting, challenging opportunities. Awesome time off policy, no limits, make your own.

    Cons

    CEO checked out rich about 2 years ago. Rampant politics, lack of direction, no management. Zero compensation, promotion oportunities in my group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider earning that pay.

    It is a bit hard to get into, and you have to be strong in communication

    Pros

    Very interesting work toward a very clear vision. Incredibly competent engineers, with a management that understands what we're doing.

    Cons

    Very challenging work: will almost certainly result in staying late a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aggressive market diversification appears to be working for you, so stick with it.

    Pros

    Good compensation, used to be great technical talent, great place for a fresh college grad.

    Cons

    Management is rotting to the point of not recognizing their best talent is leaving for greener pastures (pun intended). Promotions are slower than you think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of kicking good ideas aside in the name of schedules and business decisions, pay attention to employee morale.

    Pros

    Challenging work.
    If you take the initiative and be proactive, you will be rewarded careerwise.

    Cons

    The work is continuous with no lull. You will have to learn to pace yourself, otherwise you will burn out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to balance the workload. Multiple projects all vying for the same resources puts lots of pressure on the engineers.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and liked what I did.

    Cons

    Worst manager I ever worked for. She called for 5 minutes meeting, it turned out 30 mins to an hour or until people kicked us out of the conference. She talked about other people, and gossips. Didn't know how to assign job responsibilities to employees. One was extremely busy, while others weren't challenged enough. Fake and insecured and nosy and micro manager. Since she started running the department a few years ago, she demoted all her supervisors. EmployeeS walked out without giving notice. She involved way too much in APA. I think this could be her side job. Stupid management didn't see this even the employees brought to their attention. It's sad the company is a decent place to work for. I wouldn't say the best but average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to pay attention to area that has big turn over.
