    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been w/ NVIDIA for nearly 10yr in Austin, Texas. I like to be w/ the comp because of technology and products that NVIDIA working on.

    Cons

    since we are remote from Austin, Tx there are so many disadvantages of growth to advance further because of super micro manage from team leaders and managements.
    * we have a very young and inexperience leaderships w/ bad attitude (not fit in their role). Because of that many projects are LATE, micro manage to NOT important tasks and we missed out schedule
    * our team leader and management often not at work office and hard to communicate, show up 20-30min late in their own meeting w/ smell, sweat workout clothes and we have to start all over because of his action.
    * Third party rank and rate our internal employee survey are low in the 20%, but second & third line manager travel to Austin w/ many ignore and un-answer to our concerns. Perhaps, they just want to show to their VP and CEO that they did travel to Austin site and had a team out to team building activity (like painting and eat until 9p) but there was not much to address our concerns and issues.
    * we work w/o a life at home and the additional team building until 9-10p is not acceptable. We are also have family to take care after work.
    *annual salary was nearly stand still in the past several years. They don't see what we worked to dead, they used comments to us during the performance review that they don't applied to them.
    * managements stick to good old boy systems.
    * I love pet at home and not at work. People bring their dog to work that bark and smell like a zoo. I personally don't think it is a healthy to bring pets to work to distract people surrounding in the company
    * you can not pass the parking lot w/o going thru a group of NVIDIA employees smoking by the building
    * we have lost number of employees because of these issues. They left w/o telling us onsite these issues are the problem.

    Advice to Management

    * we would like our great CEO to flatten level of management (to many layer and politic) to stay focus with goal of programs/projects in order to achieve and get products out to the market successfully.
    * NON of our team leaders and management have any idea to run projects smooth and on time. We are NEEDing bad of the real certified Program/Project team member to help and guide our team to run project w/ focus, clear issues from our engineers, keep schedule in place, etc...
    * conference call time to multiple location must be consider appropriately between site (we often do 10-11p central time and we lost sleep and come to work w/o full of energy)
