Intern for a summer, great place except for my manager.

Multimedia Intern (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

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

ConsAs 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    One of the Best Companies

    Staff Systems Engineer (Current Employee)
    Austin, TX

    I have been working at National Instruments full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: A youthful company with large growth and opportunities in a city that is good to start a career in. The vision of the company… Cons: The pay is lower than most other tech companies. I estimate about 5-15%. That comes from NI taking advantage of the great location… Advice to Senior Management: I would like every 3 years to cut the bottom 2% performers. … Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
