Pros

Nvidia offers the opportunity to work with exceptionally intelligent and driven people while building amazing products. Opportunities for both technical growth and career advancement abound. Management works hard to retain their best engineers.

Cons

Like many technical companies, Nvidia often runs its projects on unrealistically aggressive schedules (leading to unreasonable demands on its employees.)

On the issue of compensation, certain benefits are unfortunately lacking. For example, Nvidia offers no 401(k) matching.

Advice to Management

While Nvidia's core business units are amazingly strong, the management of certain "growth" units is unfortunately reactionary.

    Pros

    NVIDIA is a well-run, aggressive and focused company. Jen-Hsun personally sets a tempo and culture that permeates the organization and make it a great place to work. NVIDIA is not a political company, and its great to work in an environment where everyone is pulling in the same well-defined direction. NVIDIA recruits and retains some incredibly smart people, making it a place where it is a delight to work as part of a very able team.

    Cons

    The hours can be long - you are expected to be available to answer the flood of emails 24/7; but that is part of being an aggressive organization, and provided you are able to manage the balance between work and life, which not all can, it is a rewarding environment to be part of and worth the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing hard on us, that is ultimately why we like working here.
