Best of luck. Though a job with Ati, IBM, Philips or Sony would also be great!

Hope you find satisfaction in your first real job :clap:

I do not recommend woprking at NVIDIA for anything except scamming free hardware. Oh, benefits (health, free lunches, etc) were excellent.

I know three people that were scape-goated out of their jobs in NVIDIA's "blameless culture." When I worked for NVIDIA, morale was low, management lived in a fantasy world that had little bearing on customer reality, intra-employee cooperation was virtually non-existent (unless you could show how your project directly aided the person you wanted to cooperate), and the environment was generally so aggressive that a mere 40-hour workweek was nonexistant.

I'd never go back, even if they doubled my salary.

How are you going to pack in five years working experience (listed in those job requirements) exactly?

No, I'm acting like you're just out of uni, which is what you said in your very first post! Experience was the problem I had when I left Uni and started applying for jobs, everywhere seemed to be wanting several years of experience which of course I couldn't get until someone actually gave me a job! So I was quite surprised to see you picking jobs requiring 5 years working experience...if you can't apply for another 4.5 years, what's the point in looking now? For all we know, Nvidia could be gone by then ;)

my job ion the m,ilitary is driectly related to network admin, ie exchange, active directory, network backups and customer support of servers and desktops. and i am an exchange specialist. and i have been doing this for 2.5 years in the military , and when i am done in the military in 1.5 years, plus the year before the military.. on top of that.. i have been to 5 one month long classes that were training for network admin type stuff. i hope i'll be good to go. and i'm not gonna apply tomorrow, but i want to get a bead on how things look so i can be prepared.

Funny, I thought you were talking about microsoft till I read it over again carefully... heh. But I digress. hehe.

Well, as for the 40 hour work week, I don't think that's existent anywhere anymore. So that's normal.

As for the aggressiveness and the lack of cooperation, I wouldn't know but I do believe you. But companies that run like that do succeed. Just not very fun. I knew a person who worked there while the GF3 was about to be released. She apparently had a really good experience though. Oh well, I guess it really depends on what department you're in or even the time period you're there? She was helping out with board development if I remember correctly.

agree with eesa there. Perhaps it was a bad period there or something :/
