Senior Production Planner (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMay 11, 2017
Most aspects of Nvidia were enjoyable. As long as you had a good manager you could really enjoy your experience working with them. I would go back if given the opportunity.

Signal Integrity Engineer (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMay 1, 2017
highly motivated and capable engineers. Management in some divisions can be quite challenging. The perks here are definitely limited compared to top companies like Google.

Contractor (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAApril 17, 2017
I was only a contractor but still was able to enjoy the many perks of working at Nvidia. They definitely do their best to promote from within. Cafeteria options were very nice.

Mechanical Lab Technician, Electronics Tester (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAApril 12, 2017
The projects were fair but to be a contractor there for a year and let go because the project ended and there was no more funds wasnt very fair. The culture of people were intresting but fair. The enjoyable days there when working very hard together to get many different projects done with quality and time efficient.
Pros
Having a job
Cons
Let go fast

Hardware Intern (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMarch 23, 2017
I did an internship at NVIDIA after my sophomore year of college. It was a productive time, I got to play with a laser and help the camera division caliberate cameras. They trusted me with many responsibilities and it was rewarding.

Don't like company culture
Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMarch 8, 2017
Management can easily loose the temper without apology. It is expected to follow the order from the top without thinking. Management does not care about employees's grow and learning. In order to achieve their goal, manager can lie about the truth. Working environment is stressful.
Pros
Stock is doing good.
Cons
working environment is brutal

Nice working place
Senior Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJanuary 4, 2017
Nvidia is a good work place. It's centrally located close to 101, and 280 freeway.

Managers are good and well trained

People enjoy coming to work and feel appreciated, acknowledged and rewarded. Creativity, productivity and thinking outside the box flourish.

Employees give 200 percent. They strive to be the best and to deliver top-quality products and services. They take responsibility for their actions and decisions

Kindness and understanding prevail when employees face challenges such as accidents, illnesses, personal tragedies and natural disasters. People will usually go the extra mile for others when they’re treated well and with understanding, compassion and respect
Pros
Subsidized lunch
Cons
Need more Exercise room for workout

NVIDIA good palce to work at.
Uniform Division Officer-Red Five (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 24, 2016
People are friendly. Really organized. I learned a lot about the systems and how everything worked at the site. Management was great. The only thing I really did not like was the fact that growth opportunities took a while. I have a lot of experience in security but needed to be patient in order to grow in the company.

Sr. HW Engineering Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAOctober 21, 2016
Working is not clearly directed. Direction is being changed every moment. Management has no enough experience to work on the system product and handing the people who from various cultures previously.

Visionary CEO, but poor work/life balance burns out employees
Engineering Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Beaverton, ORAugust 14, 2016
Great co-workers, fun, challenging innovative products. Upper management tends to have unrealistic schedule expectations that leads to long hours, stress and low morale.
Pros
Very talented, hard working co-workers
Cons
Long/late hours

Chip Solutions - Post Silicon Bringup (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAMay 18, 2016
Every GPU cycle presents new challenges, features and work. Nvidia constantly pushes the envelopes in all aspects and leads the industry with new technologies.

Most of the time, I am working with multiple teams to bring new chips and features to market. I am constantly learning and am supported by capable leaders and peers.

Constantly working on new features and different teams across the world means I'm working around the clock. Work/life balance is reasonable but at times can be quite challenging over long periods of time.

Management has good vision and direction. CEO is always thinking years in advance and pivots the company when beneficial to the future. Nvidia is constantly pushing gross margins which can be felt at the engineering level. Intent is good but can be overly restrictive at times (e.g.: lab equipment, computer purchases, etc).
Pros
Free dinner, on campus food, good health plan options, 401k match, Espp
Cons
non-existent laptop replacement plan (5 years+), food isn't great, parking

Partner Onboarding (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAFebruary 22, 2016
As with many big corporations, there's a big game being played on employees..here it was primarily using West Valley Staffing, the in house staffing agency to lure people in with potential jobs at a growing co/dept but in fact, the department has NO requisition/authority to make this contractor a permanent employee, and NO incentive to, because WV pays below market, with almost no benefits, no sick time, no holiday pay unless you've been there 6 mos, etc. Good luck going through years of being underpaid, below market, for the "hopes" of becoming a permanent employee. (stories of people being contractors for 2-5 years abound)

And the other game is people working cross functionally, with reporting/performance/pay managed by one manager, but actual work and projects with multiple managers who don't communicate, so no one really knows everything you're being asked to do, or should be paid to do.
Pros
work from home 1 day
Cons
managers who are out of touch with the times, can't keep up, don't have insight into what their direct reports are being asked to do.

Smart People. Great Company to work for
Internship (Current Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAFebruary 13, 2016
One thing to remember before starting a job at NVIDIA that is, you are responsible for your work. Super Cool people and super smart minds. Your every word has weight. So when you say something to management or peers you better get it done because your word stands for your commitment. You will get all the help you need but you gotta ask for it. Nobody is going to do spoon feeding for you. The best part about it is you will learn a lot in the process and you feel confident. That's my best take away from NVIDIA.
Pros
Challenging work environment, Good pay, Nice Perks
Cons
There might be Cons but I didn't find any
