Pros

There is a lot of cool stuff happening as this company reinvents itself from just pushing pixels to pushing data around everywhere. NVIDIA is very open internally, so it's very easy to see the level of excitement flowing around; it's nice to generally know about what's happening around you, too.

Cons

NVIDIA is organized to pinch pennies, be it in the compute infrastructure or in employee compensation. Everybody works very hard, but compensation is subpar for the industry; benefits (401k matching?) similarly lack.

    Pros

    Flexible work conditions (hours, location).

    Semi-annual review process is pretty well done --- definitely a meritocracy.

    Company does annual survey of employees to try to improve, but then it doesn't necessarily act on the results.

    Interesting projects.

    Pretty good support for personal development.

    Cons

    Not as much collaborative engineering as I had hoped.

    Compensation adjustment pool varies randomly from year to year so increase in level of performance doesn't necessarily result in increased compensation.

    "Fast paced, long work hours, amazing people, above average pay"
