Company is great, human resource department needs work
Human Resources (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAJuly 17, 2017
Human resources was a mess. The management is out of touch with employees, making for an unpleasant work environment. Work life balance for the department was non-existent. We were expected to be available at all times. Management would say otherwise, but if you did not respond after hours, you were questioned about why.

HARDWARE TEST OPERATOR (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALMay 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.
Pros
catered lunches
Cons
long hours and odd hours

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.

Mechanical Lab Technician, Electronics Tester (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CAApril 12, 2017

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, 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.

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

Dynamic environment with great leadership and peers
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
