    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than a year)


    There are always interesting problems to tackle at NVIDIA. The company has an open culture, nurturing environment and interesting challenges. Good work/life balance, enjoyable company culture.


    Sometimes internal tools, flows and infrastructure can be outdated due to the hardware roots and the age of the company. There are bigger competitors with larger compensation packages.
