    Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Santa Clara, CA

    I worked at NVIDIA full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company had huge growth while I was there. Jensen had excellent leadership and vision, Chris M was amazing. Culture was the world is our oyster and we were reaching for it. Light every pixel. Quite inspiring.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy. Didn't listen to field input about what customers wanted, or only certain customer input was valued. Lots of missed opportunity and the bureaucrats always knew more than the guy sitting with the customers every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Was a fun place to work. Lost the formula, got too big. Manager felt scared, threatened, couldn't take advantage of asset/experience.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company has some great technology and going into some interesting new areas like HPC and automotive, strong leader (Jensen Huang), good benefits, competitive pay.

    Cons

    Not much training, office environment is good and if you can make a case for what you need to win you will probably get it. Work life balance can be an issue depending on which group you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more training options in different areas - how about online courses.

    Positive, learned a lot, met technical people

    I worked at NVIDIA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    nice people to work with, had weekly or bi-weekly talk by technical guys who give us general info about the current trend, new ideas, etc. I felt like my mentor really wanted me to learn something and not just get the work done. The work was not hard to get stuck and was not easy to make it bored. It was challenging enough.

    Cons

    Sometimes you need to get info from people and it is hard to get it since people are busy. documentation can help. Some stuff done by former guys had no documentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am not qualified to give advice to management because of lack of experience. But I would say they should let their employees to take time to work on documentations. Perhaps deadlines and work pressure make that difficult, but that seems important to me.
