    I worked at NVIDIA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Got pulled into work from day 1, they treat interns like regular employees.
    Extremely talented engineers, very helpful.
    The approach is competitive and aggressive here.
    Good pay, benifits. They pay for your transportation, relocation, flight, etc.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is a problem here

    Pros

    Smart people around you, be ready to learn fast

    Cons

    very poor life-work balance; have to work long hours to achieve speed of light; no 401k match; no bonus; they just changed RSU to cash to minimize cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be nice to your employee; compensate them well

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The team I work with and the products I work on are top notch and the product cycles allow for a bit of down time (sometimes). This is a feast and famine type of position at times. Great health care.

    Cons

    No more stock options (RSU's unless you are upper management) and not bonus structure. My team and boss are good, but others are not so and don't give down time. No room for advancement as those that are in management don't seem to move to make room for others to move up (unless they leave).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give bonuses, give RSU's again,

    I worked at NVIDIA full-time

    Pros

    Fun teams to work with, some great managers and one can enjoy working on a range of interesting products. For gamers, getting beta keys and free copies of the partnered titles is a great plus.

    Cons

    Can get very cliquey, with a strong separation between the marketing/sales people and the web/design/programmers - sometimes to a comical degree where clear lack of respect for 'the people on the dark side of the office' is shown. Salaries can also be very poor for technical staff when compared to industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate the teams more.
