HARDWARE TEST OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – May 16, 2017
A typical day at work would be inventory parts before testing them, and setting up test station for process to begin. Majority of hours were rotating shifts with other technicians to make sure all testing was complete.
Mechanical Lab Technician, Electronics Tester (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – April 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.
Hardware Intern (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – March 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.
Manager (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – March 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.
Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – January 28, 2017
Great workplace with no micromanagement. Work is paced based on the team needs and work timings are really flexible. Managers are really helpful and respond quickly to the team needs. Overall a very open and friendly environment to work in.
Senior Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – January 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
Uniform Division Officer-Red Five (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – October 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.
Dynamic environment with great leadership and peers
Chip Solutions - Post Silicon Bringup (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – May 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).
Free dinner, on campus food, good health plan options, 401k match, Espp

Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 19, 2016
Was very informative to learn about how conferences work from outside in. Worked from checkin to after party and concluded with take down of the event. Was a great learning experience working along side the Events team at Nvidia.
Senior Technician Engineer (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – March 10, 2016

Sometime i have to work with software engineer in flashing and making sure the devices have a good and functioning image. I have enjoy and love to work for this company.
Partner Onboarding (Former Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 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.
work from home 1 day
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.
Internship (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – February 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.
Challenging work environment, Good pay, Nice Perks
