    Pros

    Visionary CEO with vision and market awareness. Empowering work environment where risk taking, mistakes & learning are expected. Often on the cutting edge of meaningful innovation. Company commitment to improving the world.

    Cons

    Some areas are still very light on process leading to last-minute scrambles & heroic saves. It's not a "warm & fuzzy" culture -- Feedback is direct, quick, and can hurt if you're the type to take it personally. If you can de-personalize it and learn, you'll do great.

    Advice to Management

    Mostly keep up the good work, but if possible, also develop a more sophisticated awareness of the differences in employees and what motivates them. As we do that, we'll more completely tap our existing employees, and be able to attract a wider range of employees as we grow.

    Pros

    NVIDIA is an established leader in the field of visual computing. It is highly focused on gaming, professional visualization, high-performance computing and smart devices (with special focus on automotive). NVIDIA hires world-class professionals who make recognized contributions to all those fields. As a result, NVIDIA is a highly diversified environment of highly motivated and smart people, which makes it a great place to be at. Combined with great human relationships, great benefits and a rock-star CEO, what else can you ask for?

    Cons

    Santa Clara offices are getting crowded. Looking forward for the new campus!

    Advice to Management

    In a company where change is constant - keep doing what you do! Look for new business opportunities, hire the best talent, and listen to your employees. Thanks!

    Pros

    NVIDIA is an awesome company to work for - innovative, cutting and bleeding edge, fast-paced. People here are out to make a difference in the world - both through the products we create and the way we contribute to the communities we work and live in. Working on a project here means really owning that project - you can see the impact of your work. Colleagues are smart,, committed, achievement-oriented, passionate and great to work with. I love my company, the products and the team!

    Cons

    Changing the world can be demanding and expectations are high, but if you are willing to put in the hard work and collaborate with others, the career opportunity is outstanding.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reward high performance and maintain the open door policies that have made NVIDIA what it is.

    Pros

    Great salary, friendly people, dog friendly campus. Hours are very flexible. Your team and manager will determine your experience here. You're encouraged to learn and bring new skills to your team. A lot of long tenure employees, good sign at any company. Great mix of older and younger talent, energy plus experience!

    Cons

    No bonuses or stock options. Heavy home brew backend, takes a bit of time to learn - teams are spread out over different sites (makes syncing and collaboration difficult at times. E-mail heavy communication - Office Communicator is the company IM protocol (no Android support). Newegg gives better product discounts than employees get (I'm a gamer, was disappointed on this one)

    Advice to Management

    Bring teams closer together.

    Keep up on comp package. Provide long-term benefit to employees.
