Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Decent compensation and good benefits
Good opportunities for early career growth

Cons

No work life balance
Ineffective management at all levels
Hostile work environment
Extremely chaotic, no planning or strategy
CYA mentality, especially among managers
Horrible PTO policy - if you are busy, you never get time off, and no pay out when you leave
No reward for exceptional performance; no consequences for poor performance

Advice to Management

Get rid of the "Yes Men" in middle management, and hire managers with experience, who respect and follow good engineering practice. Be realistic about schedules, and stop trying to cut corners. Constantly setting unachievable goals, then blaming engineering for failures is driving away talent.
