    I worked at NVIDIA as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Smart people who work hard but are always there to help.
    - Clear vision of transitioning to AI, and effective rebranding of the company to reflect that.
    - Very open, collaborative environment.
    - Fairly flexible work hours (this is rather group dependent though, so YMMV)
    - Really nice amount of desk space (as far as I can tell, substantially more than those at other big tech firms). People seem to not mention this detail often in their reviews but it makes such a giant impact on your ability to work comfortably and be productive.
    - Free drinks and some snacks.
    - Flexible PTO (this also can be a con)

    Cons

    - Please improve the food! It doesn't even have to be free, but the quality really needs to get better. :(((
    - 401k matching seems rather mediocre
    - Flexible PTO (this also can be a pro)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do.

    Pros

    Working at the pulse of the latest in technology and artificial intelligence is great. NVIDIA is one of those rare companies that proclaims to have a startup mentality, and despite having 25 years of heritage, it actually does.

    Cons

    This company moves fast, you need to be agile to keep pace.

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

    Pros

    Forward looking agenda.
    Transparency,
    Knowledgeable leadership,
    shallow management hierarchy.
    High expectations.
    Reasonable compensation.
    Not risk averse.
    Easy to get voice heard.
    Strong foothold in multiple emerging key areas.

    Cons

    Still not perceived by the market at the level it should be. GPUs are primary drivers of compute power scaling, and hence are indispensable tools for technological growth, but a lot of the industry is still only coming to grips about the importance of NVIDIA .

    Pros

    Working at Nvidia is fun! The working environment is great, colleagues are very helpful and extremely smart. Everything happens here at Speed of Light. Lot of amazing benefits that are best in the industry. The company believes in transparency and we can see this value in its culture. At Nvidia winning is important but its more important that if we fail then we fail together and not alone. This is how we roll and we take risks knowing that we will never fail alone! I am proud and fortunate enough to be a part, of this great Company!

    Cons

    Cafeteria food can be better and subsidized. Internal gear store can use a boost and increase in the number of things they sell.

    Advice to Management

    Excellent Job! Set clear goals and lets continue to move together in the direction of these goals at Speed of Light.
