    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work with some of the smartest people I've ever met on cutting edge tech, what's not to like?
    Big community around AI especially with lots of resources for learning and improving yourself.
    The benefits are just amazing and very thought out for busy people with families.
    Feel like I'm making a positive difference in the company and in society.

    Cons

    The org is a bit fragmented and complex and it's hard to get the gist of the structure of it all.
    Not obvious how to move up the ladder.
    A bit set in their ways in regards to tech stack.

    Advice to Management

    Help more with long term career coaching so your employees envision and plan to work here long term.
