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

Pros

The company is agile, and nimble to adjust to changes in the market, by responding to threats, seizing opportunities, and changing business models. As the World Leader in Visual Computing, the company strategy applies to areas where the company can make a difference. These include Computer Gaming, to Professional Graphics, Streaming Gaming | Graphics |, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning.

By having the opportunity to work on new innovative areas, work continued to be challenging, and exciting, as we solve new problems, and bridge between research and commercialization. The culture is direct, open, and honest with minimal politics. There are a lot of A-type personalities, hence when a problem arises, the team swarms to resolve it. Leadership cares passionately about the health, and well-being of the staff, providing people with flexibility in work / life balance.

This is an exciting, fun, place to work, where coworkers are intelligent, driven, and passionate about what they do. Perhaps that is why so many people who leave the company, return as other employee's don't match the balance of culture, challenging work, fun, and passion that exists here.

Cons

Working here requires resiliency, as you need to be willing to learn from failure, and open to direct feedback. It's unusual for such a large company to have the culture of a start-up, so people need adapt quickly as projects are canceled efficiently when they are not viable, or do not make business sense.

Some teams, have challenges in work / life balance, and culture, hence like it does at any employer, it matters who you work with, and who you work for. There are some teams who do not learn from their mistakes, and could do better.

Over time, stock based compensation seems less competitive than prior years, however salary remains strongly competitive.

While facilities takes great effort to provide good and healthy lunch options in the company's cafeteria, and on-site food trucks, the variety is repetitive.

Advice to Management

A wonderful place to work solving highly interesting and relevant problems, but it would be good for us to have a little more humility so absorb and understand feedback.
