    Pros

    Flexibility from within the business side of things allowed me to still do some engineering for demos, and work with people throughout the company. It's possible to work with some incredibly impressive people from all backgrounds within engineering, academia, and Silicon Valley.

    Cons

    Projects and demos get cancelled, postponed, and reborn. All of this occurs at the "Speed of Light", which can be jarring internally, or disrupt external partners.

    Advice to Management

    A Kalman filter would help maintain a rolling weighted average on lots of decisions, especially with regard to demos, product launches, and product planning. Jensen is brilliant, but also temperamental. If you can work with him, you can work with anyone. It might be nice to get back in the OEM game.

    NVIDIA is solving some of the most challenging compute problems and of course they continue to deliver the best gaming hardware in the world. This is all possible because of the great talent - brilliant, motivated and aligned. Lots of opportunity for aggressive and talented professionals

    Don't count on work life balance since everything must be done at speed of light and 90% of communications are via email that comes in 24/7.
