I have been working at National Instruments full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I get to work on a project I'm excited about and actually enjoy working on. The products NI makes get used for tons of awesome engineering applications. I feel like I'm contributing to something that is making the world a better place. The culture is relaxed, open and friendly. I like the people I work with and I feel like leadership generally makes good decisions. NI is very good about communicating with it's employees regardless of whether the news is good or bad. This gives me a lot of confidence in the company. Even when times are bad (2009 era for example) I feel like they try harder than most companies to be a stable employer and make decisions that balance the needs of the employees with the needs of the business.

Cons

I feel like I could probably be making a better salary elsewhere. To me personally, I feel like the benefit of enjoying coming to work probably outweighs the difference in salary though.

    Pros

    The leadership at NI is very strong and maintains good communication with employees. There are lots of fun and exciting things to work on. The workplace environment is top notch and work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Salaries are not the most competitive. It is sometimes difficult to move to different departments within National Instruments. Leadership sometimes seems to be overly cautious with company direction.

    Advice to Management

    Create better opportunities to move within the company and more advertising of positions internally.

    I worked at National Instruments full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work with very intelligent, fun people. Easy access to managers and executives. A very open culture. A family atmosphere that encourages work life balance. A strong corporate culture that people really believe in. Great benefits plan. Beautiful campus. Lots of internal opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    It may be difficult to maintain the culture and family feeling as the company continues to grow. Employees start to feel they are a number rather then connected with the company. Conservative on salaries and rewarding employees. Some politics at play as the company grows and managers create their own organizations.
