Pros

NI is very good about separating work and life. It is unusual to have to stay at the office late. Additionally, NI provides great feedback to employees in a systematic way so you know that you are doing your job correctly or if you need to improve in any way. Parties and happy hours in the office are common place and it is very easy to become great friends with your coworkers here.

Cons

NI doesn't pay as well as some of the companies in the tech/software field. It certainly isn't bad especially coupled with no state income tax in Texas, but it could be improved to match other companies offerings.

Advice to Management

I wish the starting pay reflected prior work done for the company and was not set in stone. It would be much easier to entice the best people to come work at NI.

    Pros

    Good environment, flexible hours, not a whole lot of bureaucracy. Coworkers are focused and very technically competent

    Cons

    National Instruments is not necessarily known for paying the highest salaries. It seems to be pretty average or below for the industry.

    Pros

    Fun, interesting, articulate people. Significant responsibility for relatively young employees. Definitely a meritocracy.

    Cons

    You will see this over and over: the pay is not great. The other benefits (health, stock, etc) are good, however.
