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

    Pros

    Flexibility, fun environment, great co-workers, beautiful campus, decent cafeteria

    Cons

    Salary stinks, benefits are mediocre, promotions and job changes are for people who suck up to the right people, Managers can be very inexperienced leading to a lot of favoritism and an extreme lack of professionalism. Definitely not a "best place to work" (NI pays to be included on the fortune list of best places to work)

    I have been working at National Instruments full-time (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.
