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

    Pros

    NVIDIA is hands down the best company I have worked at in my career (which includes a long stint running my own startup). NVIDIA works at the leading edge of the industry, and is second to none in graphics and AI technologies.

    It's amazing to have the opportunity to work with some of the smartest people in the world in these areas, and to be able to cross over between the worlds of gaming and AI research.

    The meteoric rise in the stock is also pretty nice...

    Cons

    There's always a lot of work to do, which can make work/life balance a challenge for workaholic folks like me

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Working with brilliant people and seeing the cutting edge technology before it is available to public. Nvidia really tries to attract interns not by giving superficial perks but rather feed us with knowledge and their vision of the future of the company and computing

    Cons

    Salary for interns are lower than average for the area

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

    Pros

    Great freedom to get things done, very collaborative and flat management structure. No ego's, everyone is here to get awesome things done. Very open about whats going on and where we are heading as an organization. CEO and managment is very focused and strategic.

    Cons

    HR Functions are very slow to change and behind the times in how process should work. In some cases to much red tape to take direct decisions, a little slow sometimes to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more employee perks on a daily basis, it helps build even more commitment if your employees feel you care about them everyday.
