    I have been working at NVIDIA for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nvidia is willing to take risks to position itself into future markets. They are good in learning from their mistakes.

    Cons

    We work on high end products and sometimes get bad press on the direction we are taking. This results in lower stock prices than many of us feel we should be at while working in the valley.

    Pros

    In NVIDIA, you never think you are alone, peoples working here always help each and provide enough support. I like the company culture.

    Cons

    Not like facebook and other big company, the lunch is not free here, although the dinner is very cheap, you just pay 1 dollar for the first food box.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest the manager to encourage the employees to attend meetings and make the reimbursement as well as possible as they can.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity to take on new challenges and bigger projects to move ones career forward. NVIDIA is steadily moving into a modern web service based platform and as a developer it is great to be involved with that.

    Cons

    Like with most large companies, office politics and inter-team issues pop up which can get in the way of getting the job done. It can be frustrating to play politics instead of doing actual work.

    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.
