    I have been working at National Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    NI is a very casual and friendly environment. Work hours are flexible, there's absolutely no dress code, people drink beer at work on Fridays, a lot of deck parties, very talented people.

    Cons

    The work pace is pretty slow, so career growth is pretty slow. Quite strict on following process which translates into long development cycles and a lot of boring tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hardware development process could use a refresh.
