I have been working at NVIDIA full-time

Pros

- Bright, motivated coworkers who are generally great to work with
- Interesting projects and launches
- Opportunity to work with cutting edge products and technologies
- Casual, dog-friendly campus

Cons

- Lack of organization, process, budgets, and tools to get things done
- Upper management often dysfunctional, noncommunicative, and interactions can be feel hostile. As another person commented, yelling is not uncommon
- Lack of lateral opportunities, career development, and educational benefits for non-engineers - you are pretty much stuck in the role you onboarded into
- Stock grant allotment size at focal review periods are insulting
- Cubes are either dark and isolating OR teeny tiny without privacy - need balance

Advice to Management

- Hire good people and trust them do their jobs

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

    Pros

    They have very challenging work for you. You can really learn a lot if you a recent college graduate.
    Unique tools and very good structure for some of the teams

    Cons

    The workload is sometimes pushy due to business schedule
    Some teams does not have good structures so the work is not as efficient

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if all teams are well-structured so the work is efficient

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

    Pros

    It's fun to work on gigantic chips that make a difference.

    Your work is used by a lot of people. End markets are high volume. And are meaningful: Top 500 supercomputers, medical & scientific research, industrial designers, in addition to the joy of gaming...

    Superb senior management

    By high tech standards, the work-life balance is decent

    Innovative culture -- "failure" is tolerated within reasonable bounds.

    Cons

    Can be chaotic at times. Large teams means communication overload and sometimes-oppressive check-in requirements

    It's starting to become a large company, complete with mini "fiefdoms"

    Nvidia has always been competing in ruthless markets, and the past is littered with dead companies that couldn't keep up. Schedules can be quite aggressive, especially for certain teams. There's no guarantee that Nvidia will survive the next 7 years. But I wouldn't bet against it either.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful fiefdoms don't get too rigid and that internally it stays as "One Team"
