I worked at National Instruments as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Very laid back company. Very great with work-life balance. They also encourage movement within the company to get different experiences.

Cons

As far as the intern program went, they left it up to each manager to decide how to deal with their intern. Mine wasn't particularly interested in telling me how I was doing. The intern program also let the managers decide within a few weeks whether they would ask you back for the Fall. So the next 8 weeks after that were basically lame duck if you didn't get asked back.

    Great place to launch a career, not a great place to stay if competitive compensation is what you're after

    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Austin, TX

    I have been working at National Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good work life balance, great industry experience with lots of responsibility given very early on, easy and common to jump between job roles / titles to gain experience in multiple areas

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive to other players in the same industry or to other fields someone with the same education / career background could choose to go into instead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive compensation would keep employees around longer, reducing turnover and increasing average tenure and average employee effectiveness
