    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 5 years)


    Super cool things to work on
    Cutting edge and is always looking to the future


    Can be very stressful at times
    Rarely time to breathe

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus less on immediate issues and think longer term - the SW being written today will likely be used for a long time. So getting it right is very important. Pushing engineers to get things done over high quality leads to a lot of design debt.

    Sr Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA).


    2.5 months and 9 rounds (2 telephonic and 7 onsite) down, the whole communication channel just vanished in thin air! If the company is hiring a candidate with 13 years experience, they should as well have basic courtesy to say a yes or no. Basically, I spent days and days together to go through all 9 rounds and the HR simply decided not to respond to any follow up emails that I sent asking for a decision. Extremely horrible recruitment process and utterly unprofessional.
