I have been working at National Instruments full-time

Pros

The culture is amazing and the people there are outstanding. NI provides great benefits and cares about career growth opportunities.

Cons

The pay is not quite as high as what you could get in other engineering opportunities. Also, some responsibilities can be viewed as menial when considering the different job descriptions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As great of a culture as NI has to offer, I've found that it is not nearly as innovative of an environment as I was led to believe when I joined. There are definitely opportunities for innovation, but very few of them are meaningful to the overall business.

    I worked at National Instruments as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    National Instruments has great teams and people, excellent learning and career opportunities, and a relaxed but challenging work environment. No one babysits you and wants you to contribute right away to a project.

    Cons

    I didn't have a project for the first few weeks; consequently, I was sitting around for a while. I wish my project had been decided on before I started my internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you know the projects that you are going to give interns beforehand. They are only there for a short amount of time and want to be productive.
