    Good place to work. Pay is below average -- too bad too, because NI is losing a lot of experienced talent.

    Pros

    I'm young, and almost everyone else there is young. So if your about the age of "just out of college" you should fit right in. It's a pretty laid back place to work with a lot of bright people.

    Cons

    Easy, the pay. I feel I have made major contributions and have even received company recognition (and performance bonuses). However, even though I feel I have been given above average pay raises compared to other employees, I still find my salary about average compared to the industry. If I wasn't a top performer, I would be very dissatisfied with my salary. Even so, I feel the need to explore other options, solely for compensation reasons. I have seen others here that have been here around ten years and I don't really see much of an improvement in lifestyle compared to what I am at currently. I do think the company has a better time retaining management than the engineers...

    Advice to Management

    Limit the number in management and compensate your engineers more...

    Pros

    Excellent job experience. Young crowd. Generally nice place to work with lots of flexibility. Senior management is quite competent. They are unlikely to lay you off if they can find a way to avoid that - no matter how bad the economy gets.

    Cons

    Young people are preferred. There is not much reward for advancing in your career. If you are not an engineer, you can feel very undervalued. If you reach 30 years old, you may feel like you don't fit in anymore. Consider this a 5 year job, at most.

    Advice to Management

    The business model seems to work as the company continues to grow. I need 20 words here so this sentence has been written.
