    Current Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Austin, TX

    Pros

    National Instruments company culture and positive, upbeat self-image, which contributes to enthusiastic and friendly co-workers. Annual surveys about employee satisfaction seem to produce broad, steady improvement, and helps the company keep up with changing employee care-abouts.

    Cons

    The wrong manager can make your experience miserable. Sometimes the positive self-image leads to self-deception, and blindness to its own faults.

    Excellent company, pay is low.

    Current Employee - Product Marketing Engineer  in  Austin, TX
    Current Employee - Product Marketing Engineer in Austin, TX

    Pros

    Excellent career opportunities, cool projects, excellent work-life balance, employees are treated well, very realistic expectations

    Cons

    Low pay, 3-5% pay increases every year are not exciting at all, that barely meets or slightly exceeds inflation, especially considering starting salaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide salary jumps when employees are promoted...jumping out of AE to any other role is a promotion, but we are paid no differently. That is not motivating at all.
