GeForce Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
GeForce is a brand of graphics processing units (GPUs) designed by Nvidia. As of the GeForce 20 Super series, there have been sixteen iterations of the design. The first GeForce products were discrete GPUs designed for add-on graphics boards, intended for the high-margin PC gaming market, and later diversification of the product line covered all tiers of the PC graphics market, ranging from cost-sensitive GPUs integrated on motherboards, to mainstream add-in retail boards. Most recently, GeForce technology has been introduced into Nvidia's line of embedded application processors, designed for electronic handhelds and mobile handsets.
A customer mentioned, "I'd rate it better if I could install the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070. Where is the power cable adapter most other companies supply? I have a Dell workstation with 2 6-pin PCI Express power connectors. They can supply a maximum of 300w according to Dell. They could power a Quadro 5000, but the dual 6 pin connectors don't support this card and the manufacturer doesn't supply an adapter. Try as I might I can't source a straight 8-pin to 8-pin, but I do have a 6-pin to 8-pin adapter on its way. BTW, I don't intend to game with this card. I need 4 monitor support at 2560 x 1440 and power efficiency. This card claims that. Maybe when the adapter arrives I'll be back."
Former Employee - Datacenter Technician says"I worked at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: ...if you are male. Everyone there is male and diversity is actively discouraged in the data centers. It is a work culture where lies are normalized. Where being proactive and stepping up means you are being argumentative."
Current Employee - Senior Engineer-Automotive says"I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than a year Cons: No transparency in performance management process, you would be rated by your manager how ever they like you, no measurable system. Also no transparency in performance review process that means you will never know what is your rating ,because company policy allows manager not to disclose your review rating!. So you will be surprised one day that you are out the doors , because you had different opinion from you manger on executing tasks and rated bad in performance rating and no other manger inside the company will be ready to hire you for second chance, since you are already screwed and you will never know. Now imagine newly formed automotive division with mangers only have technical skills and no people management skills or leadership skills . Also company itself changing it goals every two months on automotive products, Good luck asking you manger about your goals ,where you will be provided nothing but retaliation and no way to prove why you got that bad rating, even after you are lucky enough to find out your rating from the classified top secret system."
Current Employee - Senior Manager says"I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: I really don't understand why NVIDIA gets rated highly. I find that the work environment is unprofessional and chaotic. Work-life balance (at least for those working with India, which is most of the company) is horrible -- expect to spend 3-4 night a week, until 9:00 or 10:00 in the evening on calls with India. This is on-top-of the early morning calls. Management (by design) is "flat", which leads to a complete lack of coordination and lots of confusion. Lots of yelling in meetings because of frustration by managers and staff."
Former Employee - Senior Technical Writer says"I worked at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: Do you like to be micromanaged? Are you searching for a manager who will sabotage your projects? Do you get a thrill watching your manager swoop in like a superhero to save the project that she sabotaged? Do you admire HR scarecrows who support inept and damaged managers? Do you enjoy working with insecure colleagues who cower before the might of the micromanager? If so then you will love working here, reveling in your low self-esteem."
Former Employee - Verification Engineer says"I worked at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: - Vacation policy favors Nvidia, those worked there for a while know it well. - There is No work/life balance - There are many legacy and old engineering methods from end of 20 century - There are many inexperienced cheap college grads hirings or H1 with little guidance. There are also some experienced graphics expert engineers but overall department lacks them. There are many bad hard to change codes not having quality. There are many decisions by unskilled decision makers trained by inexperienced who don't hold accountability themselves. - Short incremental product cycles to stay ahead of competition (Nvidia obsoletes its own product from fear of competition), there are many bugs inherited from past. - Some difficult people who are not managed well - Some good engineers are overloaded therefore not executing well or not leading who eventually fail. It is uneven work load organization."
Current Employee - Verification Design Engineer says"I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than a year Cons: Nvidia is my 3rd job and by far the worst. Every week I must account for very hour of my time and tell them what test I debugged for 0.2 days."
Former Employee - Technical Writer says"I worked at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: Micro-manager who would sabotage projects and then swoop in to save the day. Received no assistance from HR. Nvidia is a candidate for the worst job I've ever had."
Current Employee - Hardware Engineer says"I have been working at NVIDIA full-time for more than 5 years Cons: Lower pay, no promotion for a really really long time. I had work for nvidia for many years but still not get promot or any RSU."
Software Engineer says"I worked at NVIDIA for more than 3 years Cons: No growth. Management had decided that I was not one of their favorites for growth."
Former Employee - Technical Writer II says"I worked at NVIDIA full-time for less than a year Cons: If you write documentation for the Tegra processor, your life will be a living hell, unless you enjoy being micromanaged and sabotaged by your manager. However, if you have low self-esteem and a willingness to submit to the pathological machinations of an insecure manager, you will enjoy the sadistic environment."
