Pros

NI is a young company. It is a fun environment with many benefits on site. It is a pretty laid back atmosphere.

Cons

There is very little room for advancement in the sales department. The compensation for the job required is not sufficient.

    Pros

    good co-workers, on-site doctor and gym, CEO and founder still at helm

    Cons

    poor pay structure, consensus-driven decision making,promotions too entrenched in social circles/playing politics, middle-management sucks, limited/slow growth opportunities

    Advice to Management

    consider trimming the fat - lots of inefficiency hiding in the middle layers of the company,...makes growth for true innovators difficult as promotions/ideas are controlled and people are forced to under perform to keep their jobs

    Pros

    The benefits are awesome, the people are nice, some of the senior technical staff are very helpful. The management decisions are transparent and for the most part the overhead is manageable. Low to medium stress level with good balance.

    Cons

    Consensus driven decisions make aggresive development impossible. Salaries and raises are mediocre. Growth opportunities are slim.

    Advice to Management

    Let engineers come up with their own ideas and execute on them instead of having tech leads warp them into their own projects. Shorten development schedules in favor of releasing more products a year. It's more fun that way
