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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Easy place to work, Very Flexible hours. Seven hour days are typical

    Cons

    The goal is to hire the best and the brightest and pay you 95% of the radford average.Many managers are very young and clueless. If you have experience and know what needs to be done, You can expect to have to convince a very young manager and gain consensus from the politically connected masses. Consensus building is king, Actual leadership is frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are so afraid of making a mistake they require tons of data to make a simple decision and are typically paralyzed by their own analysis.
