    I have been working at NVIDIA full-time (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.

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

    Pros

    I'll be up front and say that it has always been my dream to work here. With that in mind, I came in telling myself to look at this place as objectively as possible to not cloud my judgement. After working here for over a year, I must say, the hype is real.

    * Super transparent and surprisingly egalitarian

        I've worked at other tech companies where it's all double-speak. Here, the hire ups are just regular dudes with added responsibilities. It's surprising how you'll be chatting with some random guy and you find out later he's a director or something. I've never experienced this before and it's awesome.

    * The technology is incredible and so are the people who work on it

        I know everyone is "Making the World a Better Place! ™" in the valley, but seriously though, what a time to be alive! Processors that were developed for insane graphics are now used for the world's most powerful supercomputers. What's even crazier is you meet the people who develop all these tools and again... they're just regular, humble dudes doing their life's work. Outstanding.

    * You're not a peasant, you are an engineer at one of the best tech companies in the world

        Coming into Nvidia, I was worried it would be a turn and burn shop like Amazon or IBM. A sort of "We own you, now work 90 hours a week, drink this kool-aid and love us", but it's not like that all. You're an individual and you determine your involvement/focus. This sort of freedom is incredible.

    * Have I mentioned how awesome people are?

        Seriously though. I show up to work so I can work on cool things and hang out with people.

    Cons

    There are a few, minor ones that are just kind of annoying rather than a hindrance

    * Some of the Newer Hires

         So I'm a recent hire, but I've noted some trends with the newer hires. Nvidia has made it to the big time and with that, we can start pulling in people who were originally gunning for the FANGs. The problem is, a lot of those people just care about RSU's, insane perks and literally nothing else.

    * More on some of the newer hires

         They whine about the dumbest, most entitled, first-world problems. I'm not entirely sure if that Orange Mocha Frappuccino that you were served at nvcafe is entirely vegan, gluten free and fair trade certified. I'm sorry Nvidia is so awful that we don't have personal butlers at our stand by, ready to get us a kale/tofu/avocado toast that other tech companies obviously do. I'm sorry the stock dropped a little so you can't get gold rims for your jet-ski. Oh the humanity!

        I could go on, but you'll see these complaints on Glassdoor and Blind. They just care about perks and RSU's. I don't really feel like they're employees, just mercenaries ready to hop onto next thing once all their RSU's vest.

    Advice to Management

    Literally just keep doing what you're doing. There's a reason why Nvidia keeps adapting and pivoting to the top. Don't evercahnge into a turn and burn shop that focuses quarter to quarter. I've been at one before and it simply doesn't work. The true way to win in the valley is to build a passionate, high-powered, talented team that can overcome anything. Don't ever change this aspect about Nvidia!
