    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time

    Pros

    Transparent about company strategy, innovative, committed to company growth, supports work-life balance, unlimited vacation and seeks to do good in our communities.

    Cons

    Work at NVIDIA is like a buffet. You can overeat if you're not paying attention.

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

    Pros

    I'm relatively new, but the place is great. They care about the employees but the place is still professional. Everyone is very friendly, supportive and always helpful. The recruiters were great but they were open during the interviews they want to preserve the great culture they have, which is apparent. The company is full of smart people who are great to be around and the IT systems are modern, well integrated and just work. The main building even has a wine bar and great relaxing and get away from it areas. The company is egalitarian so that no-one has a private office - right up to the CEO. The company is not overbearing with lawyers or policies - common sense prevails.

    Cons

    Feeling daunted by the amount to learn.

    Pros

    Jensen, our President/CEO is very intelligent, driven, articulate, encouraging, warm, and approachable. What you see on stage is the same person you bump into in the halls or overhear at the bar. Yes, we have a really nice bar in our building. NVIDIA's success and amazing culture clearly comes from the top. During Covid, he has firmly repeated this message: "Put family first!" During the holidays, we don't have a big expensive company dinner, we volunteer or donate to our local communities. The work is challenging and meaningful. Compensation and benefits are great. I love my coworkers. I've been here almost five years. It's real and I still can't believe how lucky I am.

    Cons

    NVIDIA innovates at a crazy pace. There is more work to do than time to do it. But everyone around you is working super hard. And doing what you love, with people you care about, for a president that seems genuinely to be one of the nicest human beings I've ever met makes me want to work extra hard, too. So the biggest negative is really self-inflicted.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Makes you feel that you are inventing the future. - Competitive pay package and stock options. - Flexible work hours. - Option to work from home (depending on your manager). - Free food and transport (for india employees).

    Cons

    - People who are not self motivated can have hard time with the initial learning curve. - Bugs that are hard to reproduce and debug (can easily spend month on a single bug without being able to root cause). - Technology/software stack that is used for low level system software isn't something you can google up. Requires patience to understand and build knowledge.

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

    Pros

    Flat organization that gives its employees autonomy to do their best work. When you're in a meeting, there is no hierarchy. It's a free flow of ideas from everybody. You will have the ability to work on BIG company projects that drive real value to the world. Innovation is at the heart of NVIDIA.

    Cons

    The organization is big and sometimes there is random busy work to check a box. This busy work can get in the way of finishing your own work.
