Approves of CEO

I worked at NVIDIA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart, passionate people, interesting problems, great technology, green, responsible company, enthusiastic CEO. I learned a great deal about what it takes to ship a competitive, complex, microprocessor.

Cons

With a large software base, my area was understandably resistent to change. Many thousands of lines of perl has a way of chipping away at the soul. After getting tired of my department, it took time to get gears turning to move to a new department, before I ultimately decided to move on to other challenges. A circumscribed job role limits the number of technologies one is exposed to. I enjoy wearing many hats, and was only able to wear a few.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of good ideas, technologies, products, people. CEO continues to work hard and inspire the troops.

    Cons

    Difficult to move between departments

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for people to make horizontal moves into different groups so they can try new things. Currently it feels taboo to even mention it.
