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

    Pros

    NI has many great leaders in the company, which is part of the reason they are so successful. Great balance of work and family. Good benefits. Great people.

    Cons

    Pay is below average for industry. Health insurance isn't as good as it used to be. Sometimes you can hit the "we've always done it this way" attitude, which stunts growth.
