    Former Employee - Staff Software Engineer in Cluj-Napoca (Romania)

    I worked at National Instruments full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with newest hw, before it's released on the market
    Customers are some of the biggest names in the world
    Freedom to contribute with ideas on the product and to improve it; a lot of the time those will get included in the product
    Colleagues are enthusiastic about technology
    You get to feel that your work is helping shape/change/improve the world
    Work is fun

    Cons

    The salary sometimes lags behind the local average; this is valid for outside of Austin usually
    Sometimes people will get hired because of a desperate need to hire people; this ruins some of the existing social chemistry
    Sometimes the people that get hired get treated better than current [deserving] employees; this discussion does go into a grey area and it's something that happens in a lot of companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the advice that can be given has been given [I've already seen other reviews about NI on different sites].
    The company management is going through a continuous learning cycle, which will help it make better decisions about hiring and retaining the employees that it needs. Just don't rush the hiring part.
