Pros

Very stable job and work environment. Great place for learning and new graduates. Quite a few experienced individuals to learn from.

Cons

Compensation is sub par compared to the industry. Growth is slow. Work is slow. If you're competent, you can do enough in 20 hours a week and still impress management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire smarter management! Engineers don't like being managed by people dumber than them. Hire management who know what engineers are working on a day-to-day basis.

    Pros

    Nice people, Austin is an awesome place to live, technically stimulating and the overall atmosphere is very electrifying if you're a computer nerd.

    Cons

    The industry is boring. The company doesn't pay very well, in fact the pay is about 70% of industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By keeping salaries so low you'll never be able to retain ambitious talent. This is why NI stock has stuck in mid 20s for like 5 years now and there is no growth.
