    I have been working at National Instruments full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pretty laid back atmosphere. As long as I come in between 8ish and 930is and work about 40 hours a week they're happy. The manufacturing side is more strict about scheduling. The dress code is pretty casual, about the only people in suits are the ones in sales.

    Cons

    Can be a steep learning curve with some of the stuff they used.

    I have been working at National Instruments full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I work at NI because it feel great to go to work every morning. Great colleagues, approachable management, not too much bureaucracy for a nearly 7000 employee company. I've worked there for close to 15 years in various R&D groups.

    Cons

    Ok, everyone says it and it's true: salaries are not great. Move them up about 20% across the board and you have an awesome formula.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the good job on the product roadmaps and the culture.
    Increase salaries or the benefits. Give long term employees sabaticals for example.
