I worked at National Instruments full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Gave me alot of good job experience in sales. I met some very nice people and loved my co-workers. Learned good phone techniques for sales, learned oracle databases for our CRM.

Cons

Pay is crap, they are not a flexible work place, you live and die by the clock. I doubled my salary by going elsewhere.. oh and if you are a non-engineer forget about ever being promoted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pay better! People with non-engineering degree have talent too!!

    I have been working at National Instruments full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people that work here are top notch, high-quality people. There are definitely opportunities here for those starting their career to grow and gain valuable experiences.

    Cons

    The culture can tend towards mediocrity at times, especially with those that have been here for a long time and haven't progressed within the ranks of leadership. The company also is losing some of it's lustre as benefits get worse, but salaries stay the same with regards to companies within it's peer group of tech companies in Austin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job of rewarding top performers and also revisit the bonus structure... There's a huge problem with accepting mediocrity, but that's also highly tied to the compensation structure. It also seems as though certain members of senior executive leadership have become less than transparent over the last couple years.
