    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to work on best in class products that are solving real world problems. You're working with other talented engineers that keep the work efficient and agile. Every engineer gets a change to influence change in the products or software shipped to customers. Despite the size of the company many aspects are similar to working for a startup.

    Cons

    Long hours are not unusual, but employees can typically set their own work/life balance expectations.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people who work here are smart, driven, creative, and hard working. It's the kind of place where you're surrounded by people who are going to challenge you to dig a little deeper and push a little further than you think you can. You're encouraged to be an expert in your area and to own it. There are strong female leaders to look up to and a great support group with the company's Women in Tech (WIT) group.

    Cons

    During busy times, the work load is intense and there are very long hours. Annual reviews and performance plans are weak. Can be challenging to move or grow within the company.

    Cutting edge technology Management is willing to take risks and adapt quickly Success in the market means engineers are well supported Many opportunities to develop new skills (engineering or management) Good benefits

    Cons

    I've heard people gripe about long hours in the lead-up to a new chip release, and for sure that happens, but honestly it is not worse than the 7 other companies I have worked for.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at NVIDIA for less than a year

    Pros

    Very exciting projects, great people. I really want to emphasize that the people I worked with at NVIDIA were some of the most humble but yet knowledgeable and smart people I've ever worked with. I felt very valued as an actual member of the team, and I never felt like I was treated differently from a full-timer for being an intern.

    Cons

    Very long hours, but that was mostly by choice for me

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at NVIDIA for less than a year

    Pros

    - awesome pay - extremely friendly and helpful team - truly hands-on experience with cutting edge technology

    Cons

    - location isn't ideal (but really not bad depending on your personality) - brand new technology can be frustrating because no one knows the best way to do it! How much you learn depends on maintaining a good attitude. - long hours (again, depends on your personality)

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The company is growing into lots of vital areas: self-driving cars, VR, graphics, gaming, medical imaging and many more. This helps make it a stimulating and meaningful environment. I work on a great team, with little politics. The company is pretty flat overall, with little bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Can have long hours (balanced by flex-time and work from home policies)

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at NVIDIA for less than a year

    Pros

    Cool projects, smart co-workers, endless opportunities for career growth - constantly learning, good brand name on your resume

    Cons

    Long hours. Management can be a hit or miss - I interned there twice for two different hardware roles. In my first role, my manager was great - put me in a position to succeed, gave me good mentorship, recognized my accomplishments, etc. During my second term there, my new manager was awful (provided little to no guidance, no recognition of individual efforts/accomplishments, consistent yelling at team members).
