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

Pros

Jensen Huang drives the company forward with precision, adept at identifying issues and defining a strategy to enable the company to not stumble.
NVIDIA is breaking new ground in the mobile market place, with success in many cell phones such as the HTC One X +.
The recent acquisition and integration of Icera adds yet another building block to fuel its future growth.

Cons

Communications between departments needs to improve, it is sad that at times there can be multiple teams working on the same problem, where collaboration would reduce the time required to get the job done, with the added benefit that the solution would better a fit to the problem.

Advice to Management

Senior Management Need to listen and communicate better so that the various BU drive to a consistent goal

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Invests in top talent, clearly some incredibly smart people working here.
    Internal knowledge share presentations and recorded sessions; exciting to learn and be part of an industry leader in such cool technology
    Leadership communication and alignment on company goals and strategy. It's motivating to contribute personal effort toward a strategy and technology I believe in, especially while profit sharing.
    Great cafeteria and outdoor seating.
    I've had no trouble getting vacation time or working around appointments.

    Cons

    Pace and workload can bury someone who isn't well organized and able to context switch and pipeline well.
    Peer communication can be very honest and direct; maybe not a good fit for those sensitive to criticism.

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

    Pros

    1. Very flexible company for employees. Very few formalities like mandatory weekly meetings, etc. Communication is done on a much more ad hoc (and efficient) way.
    2. Products you'll work on are almost all cutting-edge and challenging. The people here seem to all have the common mentality of making advanced, industry-leading tech. This makes it both inspirational and challenging.
    3. Little to no BS to get in the way of work and there is a lot of focus on improving productivity and efficiency.

    Cons

    1. Compensation is not where it should be. The base salaries seem high but the yearly rewards are nowhere near as good as other companies. Expect what you get when you accept the offer to be what you'll get at the company.
    2. Work can get demanding but there aren't many benefits to make the workplace more comfortable. Obvious things like an on-site gym, shuttle services or even public transit subsidies would help greatly.

    Advice to Management

    Emphasize to the executives that compensation and benefits are sorely lacking compared to other companies.
