I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The work life balance is good for the reason above. Work will mostly come in a waves but for the most part it is an easy 9-5 job.

Everyday you can relive the scene from "The Expert". *Google it*

Subsidized dinner - $5 off of any meal

Cons

The management is dysfunctional with no goal
Zero transparency on future products and revenue
No one takes responsibility of their actions and focuses on blaming the next guy down corporate ladder.
The smart and creative engineers leave within 2 years of joining
Strong emphasis on collecting data that doesn't make any sense
Politics drives this company.

This place is toxic and poor for new graduates

The motto of speed of light is ridiculous. This is just a term used by management when they realized when the project encounters a major setback because they sacrificed too much quality for unrealistic deadlines and cost. Typically results in engineers (individual contributors) to work on the weekend.

    I worked at NVIDIA full-time

    Pros

    Fun teams to work with, some great managers and one can enjoy working on a range of interesting products. For gamers, getting beta keys and free copies of the partnered titles is a great plus.

    Cons

    Can get very cliquey, with a strong separation between the marketing/sales people and the web/design/programmers - sometimes to a comical degree where clear lack of respect for 'the people on the dark side of the office' is shown. Salaries can also be very poor for technical staff when compared to industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate the teams more.


  2. "Lot of work, good and friendly co-employees"
