I worked at NVIDIA full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Intelligent, nice, and honest people
- Cool products and potential growth
- Like a giant startup
- Open and intellectually honest culture

Cons

- Raises and promotions are few and far between
- Long hrs and lots of work
- CEO is brilliant but a bit cheap so facilities and operations are cheap and often broken
- No 401K matching, no accrued vacation, no gym, etc.

Advice to Management

- Don't engage in a price or market share war with AMD, learn from Intel's strategy
- Don't sacrifice your brand with subpar products to gain short-term revenue
- At least give raises to keep up with inflation

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

    Pros

    Highly innovative environment. Lots of young people. Fast paced. Flat management hierarchy.

    Cons

    Disorganized and poor communication between groups and throughout the management hierarchy. Projects are understaffed and there is no culture of quality assurance and testing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to run a multi-billion dollar company like a startup with 50 employees.

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

    Pros

    Nice products. Very open culture (do whatever you want). People are helping. Management maintains transparency.

    Cons

    Only focus is work. No enjoyment.
    No documentation. Flows and methodologies are very old.
    A lot depends on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Staff more people. Or pay us higher salaries.
