NI's R&D is a good and reliable place to develop knowledge, skills and experience, but it develops people very slowly.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

Pros- R&D gives a lot of responsibility to engineers of all positions, which I find very fulfilling
- Strong culture aided by no fear of lay-offs and minimal politicking
- Most managers are effective and not just buzzword generators
- Great opportunities to get involved in the community, especially with education

Cons- Improving, but still sub-standard infrastructure
- Slow advancement
- Low Starting Pay
- Extremely low raises
- Bonuses are calculated on an expectation of 40% organic growth

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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


    Pros: The atmosphere and the attitude of all the employees is amazing.
