I have been working at NVIDIA as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Very talented peers, mentors, managers. You will learn a lot. A solid solution company that has its own hardware to software stack. Pretty dominant in the GPU market.

Cons

Perks are not like other newer startup style companies. Sometimes lower level system work can be a bit dry, but it's not all of them. You could still find high level software development positions.

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

    Pros

    You will get to work with some of the smartest people in the tech industry. There are so many interesting ideas coming from different team. You are encouraged to learn as much as you can and then teach it to others in the company.

    Cons

    The CEO is very "hands-on", JHH he likes to be included in every little detail, instead of delegating powers to other team leaders, JHH prefer to lead the decision-making of every little detail of projects. (In a way, this often can be counter-productive) Besides leadership issues, there are also lack of employee growth, you are there to get your job done, the company offers very little in terms of growth, if they want additional management resources, they will just bring a new hire instead of "promoting" those who have been there and done a lot from the start. There is little or almost no chance of moving from and to another team - specially if your manager don't want to lost any more people. RSU stock is a joke - it's designed to keep you there for forever. Your RSU shares won't get to you until after 3 years, and once it's matured, you will get very little of it, I got 52 shares one time, and by the time tax kicks in, you will be lucky to bring 25 shares home (25 shares won't even get you a PS3 bundle)

    Advice to Management

    - Promote and grow your current employees, treat them as investments rather than dispensable resources
    - CEO and upper-management needs to focus on higher-level management, needs to learn how to delegate power to other team leaders instead micro-manage every little detail on every project they encounter inside the company.
    - If the company want to be "green" and going toward self-sustainability, it should focus more on alternative energy and more aggressive ways to reduce energy (including encourage employees to drive more electric cars to work, and provide shuttle services for bay area city commuters)

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, still a pretty good work culture, exciting products, dog friendly

    Cons

    no yearly bonuses. just recently instituted 401K match, underpaid compared to market value of Silicon Valley

    Advice to Management

    Make employees feel like they are important. Ditch the RSU compensation and give yearly bonuses much like many of the other Silicon Valley companies. Most ppl want instant gratification, but have to wait 3-4 years for stocks to vest.
