    Pros

    You work for a visionary leader
    You work for brilliant yet humble leaders
    You work with teammates who are like family

    Like any successful high growth companies, you commit your mindshare and time to the company

    You have to set your own boundaries.

    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    NVIDIA enables talented people to do their life’s work and make a difference in fields from Computer Graphics to Deep Learning.

    Fast paced culture means that ideas/products/focus are constantly evolving.

    Seeing the work that you do make a difference. NVIDIA technology is at the forefront in shaping the future of healthcare; driving innovation in cloud services; winning Oscars for special effects; revolutionary the fields of robotics & autonomous vehicles. All of these breakthroughs are driven by empowered individuals and/or small teams.

    Working in the enterprise team we get to work with talented and wonderful customers who are often at the forefront of changing workflows within their industries. Engaging with these individuals is what makes every day special.

    Cons

    Everyone is trying to be the best version of themselves - this means you have to be prepared to share and defend ideas; receive critical feedback, not platitudes; be proud of your work but never be satisfied.

    Time is short; you need to work at the speed of light and be prepared to change direction; drop good ideas in favor of great ones.

    New hires need to be self-starting - not being afraid to ask questions of leaders and peers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the best people - regardless of roles or titles.
