    Pros

    Some very smart, friendly people work there. The location is good if you live in the western suburbs.

    Cons

    A lot of people seem to be doing very little. For example, they have a huge marketing department for a company their size where not much is accomplished, and a pretty small sales staff who are under a lot of pressure. Favoritism, while nothing new, is blatant. The engineering dept has their own spacious offices but most employees are in cubes. Pervasive and consistent negative attitudes among employees creates a negative environment so interactions are tense and collaboration is just an idea, not a reality. (i.e. When asked your opinion, it's not really wanted so don't bother). Management works in a bubble and is low on social skills. Defined hierarchy with very little interaction across divides. Almost no diversity among people there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring a more diverse group of people and be open to new ideas. Get an extrovert or two in management who can get employees involved and heck, even excited about a mission or a vision. Be welcoming and spend time with employees instead of relying on others to fill you in. Play less squash.

    A lost cause!

    I worked at Network Instruments

    Pros

    A great deal of learning is required for any position in this company, so future employability is high.

    Cons

    The company was bought out and all relevent personel either left the company or were pushed out during acquisitions. No viable leadership remains, outside of Sales and Marketing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company is doomed to failure. Cut the rope.

    I have been working at Network Instruments full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The products are great today but others are catching up. Hardware is better and faster than the competition. Good range.

    Cons

    Management ignores market needs. Customers requests fall in a black hole. Very old fashioned interface. Salary package is very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees more

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. The products are well received and accepted by customers.

    Cons

    Communication is kept to a minimum. Engineering is not allowed to talk to sales/sales support except thru management. Very old school, poor benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up a little. Encourage innovation. Pay your employees market salaries.
