Nvidia Target Bonus

Mar 26, 2018 40 Comments

I recently got an offer from nVidia as system software engineer. The recruiter says there is a target bonus of 20%. Seems higher than other offers. Is it common to get full bonus?

      No cash bonus. NVIDIA perf rewards are quite dismal.
      Your work your ass off, make big impact - you get 3% salary bump, and 10K in stock.

    Before 2018, they offered a automatic salary increase of 3% if you are a full contributor. (That was your bonus) if you were a top contributor, you could receive up to 7%. This was your additional bonus based on if your manager selected you to have this.

    Starting 2018, instead of the auto 3% salary increase, you now get RSU if you’re full contributor. You could still get a salary increase if you’re a top contributor. If you’re the weak link and under performing you don’t get either. I’ve been here for 5 years. This is for ic3

    "Bonus" is stock. I've gotten 30-40%. So not bad, especially with the stock skyrocketing it becomes more like 100%+.

      Stock can also drop in value. Especially risky now when it's high. But management always counts like its going upwards, and gives it with such fanfare is not even funny.

      Yeah, nvidia stock valuation is under question and lots of discussion these days around it, hope it continues to grow for at least next few years 😜

    There is no annual bonus. Perhaps they were referring to something else?
