Pros

Work with smart people. Good work environment. Good hours. Interesting work. Very steady employer (no layoffs). Good location.

Cons

Pay is mediocre. Promotions/recognition are dependent on what team you're on. If you are on a low-profile team, you won't be seen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You'll lose all your experienced people if you don't give some raises soon.

    I have been working at National Instruments

    Pros

    People are willing and very capable to get the job done. Lots of collective technical knowledge to increase your skills, people desire to help each other.

    Cons

    Disorganized in terms of processes. Performance review is lacking clarity and objectivity. It can be hard to maintain work-family balance, as the projects are generally understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline purchasing processes so that it´s easier for the engineers and designers to acquire the parts, supplies and components that they need without having to go through the lengthy approval chain, and budget code maze.

    Pros

    MI is an amazing place to work with fun people and an environment that challenges you every day. You dictate your own path.

    Cons

    Because you dictate your own path you are given enough rope to hang yourself. If you take on too many projects and to much work and then do a mediocre job, you will not make people happt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. and Dr. T please never retire!
