    Hands down the culture. It's a creative environment where you truly believe you're making a difference in the world.


    While the pay is fair, you're not going to get rich. All leadership are engineers.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at National Instruments.

    Interview Details

    Met at the career fair and honestly didn't expect a response. Ended up getting a response that night about interviewing the next week, half technical, half personal. A second interview three weeks later over the phone completely character responses. The offer came through a few weeks after that, then another two comparing options. Both times very prompt about the next stage and times to be available, never had to shift time slots. Once offered, constantly in contact from multiple employees giving support for any questions. Great HR department, very personal experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Probably more difficult for myself to answer since my background is not coding, but "how do you find the missing number in an array of 1 to 100?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    competitive offer off the bat, no negotiations necessary. Came within $200 (including all packages and relocation funds) of another similar internship.
