    Pros

    If you're a star performer...you get outsized compensation.

    Cons

    If you're average performer..you get below average compensation..but that happens a lot of tech companies now. The company as a whole is not as hard driving as it once was...though certain groups still are. This is not a touchy-feely company, so if you want to hear nice things about your work, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Reorgs rarely fix things at nvidia.

    Pros

    Development at NVIDIA is fast paced. As a general rule, the engineers are smart and have a lot to teach. The benefits are pretty good and the stock compensation still generates substantial value for employees

    Cons

    NVIDIA has been having growing pains. Many engineers were hired as a result of the success of the Tesla chips, and it took a lot of time for them to ramp up. Other infrastructure (IT, internal web services, development process) are still lagging behind and are more or less unchanged from when the company was 1/4 of the current size. Also, during the recession, many benefits were cut or downsized and they show no signs of returning

    Advice to Management

    Make NVIDIA one of the best places to work again by making it easy to work here:

    -Make it easy for engineers to get the tools they need
    -Give back the feel-good, relatively inexpensive benefits like free lunch and free NVIDIA schwag
    -Continue the process of restoring salaries and giving reasonable raises
    -Don't blow sunshine up employees' asses so often. We know when things aren't going well. Be honest with us.
